    If I daisy chain a FW400 drive onto a FW800 drive, will the FW800 drive slow down to FW400 speeds?

    Not if the FW400 device is the last in the chain.

    Thanks, good to know. Since the iMac only has one FW port, I wanted to make sure about that before investing in a larger external drive to go along with the FW400 drive I currently have.
