    OK so I bought this two ATA/100 -> Firewire 800 drive enclosure a while back.

    I had the thing setup to just mount the two drives separately and then use diskutility's software RAID-0 functionality to link them on my mac.

    Recently, I thought it'd be a swell idea to finally upgrade the firmware, after having problems recently with large files.

    The process failed. Now, the bridge-board is effectively dead. It won't be detected on my mac or my PC, and I'm getting a replacement in the mail made by a different manufacturer.

    I have lots of data on the two drives (which were linked through software RAID), my question is: will a different bridge-board made by a different manufacturer screw up an Apple software RAID-0 setup?

    Btw, for those of you who are wondering, my bridgeboard was a (custom, I think) Initio 2430L RAID-SPAN Dual ATA-100 -> 1394b. I bought an Oxford 912 to replace it (the new one will have RAID-0 built in so it'll be an upgrade).

    Uh I got the thing to mount again (it involved duct tape and hammers), but if someone could still answer my question, I'm still interested.
