    I have a new My Book 500G HDD hooked up to my iMac with FW 800. I want to daisy chain a new one to it. Do you have to then use a FW 400 between the two external drives? How do you do this? Does that slow it down noticeably. I use it for HDV editing. Thanks!

    You should be able to connect to the drive to your iMac as you say, and daisy chain a second one using the spare FW800 on the MyBook. That way you should get 800 speed on both drives into your Mac.
