    Hi all

    I have a Hitachi G-Raid unit (8Tb) connected to my 2011 imac via thunderbolt. It has another TB connector on the back so that a second TB device can be daisy-chained.

    Does anyone know if I can daisy-chain a firewire 800 G-raid unit via an adaptor? Thanks.

    I assume you mean can you hook the thunderbolt to firewire dongle off of the G-RAID thunderbolt unit? Yes yes you can. iMac -> GRaid Thunderbolt -> Thunderbolt to Firewire dongle -> GRaid Firewire

    Edit: If you have the 2011 iMac, why aren't you using the firewire port to hook your firewire hard drive enclosure to it?

    Thanks for the info. My FireWire port is in use, and the two drives are next to one another.
