    Hi folks,

    I have two external hard drives.
    First is Lacie 4big quadra. It is connected to my mac via FW800
    Then I have a g-raid connected to the lacie via FW800. This all works fine.
    Both external drives have eSata. Is it possible to connect the two drives together via eSata to take advantage of the faster transfer speeds between the two drives? Even though the first drive is connected to the mac via FW800.

    I tried and the second drive didn't mount when connected via eSata.. but maybe I am doing something wrong...

    Anybody have any experience with this?

    Thanks!

    No. Firewire and e-SATA are not compatible and as FW800 limits your speeds to 65 to 75 MB/s, you would not see S-ATA speeds anyway, if it would work.
