    I'm having problems setting up my drives in the OWC enclosure.

    When only one HD is connected, disk utility shows the enclosure and that 1 hd (both work seperately).

    When both are connected it shows the enclosure with no drives and a 2TB capacity. The drives are 200 &300GB and connected through FW800.

    Both drives are set as Master (I read something that said I should do that).

    Anyway, if I try to erase or partition the '2TB OWC Enclosure' in diskutility nothing happens and the hd's eventually spin down.

    I would like to use these drives as JBOD.

    What am I doing wrong? Thanks.


    EDIT: I tried Master/Slave again and it works..

    Answered your own question.

    No two units can share the same bus while both being master :)
