    I have 2 laCie hard drives, They have been working fine for over a week i have one backing up with time machine and the other just as a spare drive.

    Shut my mac down last night by ejecting the disc’s then shutting down the mac.

    Turns the mac on this morning and they are not mounting, I have the connected via firewire 800. I’ve repaired permissions & also repaired the disc’s.

    They do connect thou via 400 port on the front of the G5. So if my firewire 800 port is broke is there a way i can try and find out?

    Cheers

    I had the same problem. Try resetting the SMU. Shutdown, unplug all the cables, give it 30 seconds or so, hook eveything back up and reboot.

    link to apple support article

    good luck
