    My front firewire 400 and 800 ports abruptly quit working. THe backs work fine. I've tried two different video cameras and an external hard drive and according to system profiler none are recognized and none are accessible.

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions??


    running Mac OS X 10.5.8 by the way.

    It might be because:

    - broken front panel board
    - broken firewire cable inside the case
    - broken logic board (firewire port inside)
