    OK, here's a question.

    A G-Tech Drive with two FW800 for Daisy chaining. Can you plug two different computers into the one drive, one in each port via FW800 and share the drive?

    Could be rather useful and quicker than network sharing.

    Curious...

    Works only if only one computer is turned on.

    Without a network interface on top, you can't share file level drives amongst computers.
