I have a G4 trapped in firewire target mode and now also cannot see disc as harddrive on linked G4. I am unable to start from cd (keyboard C on startup) to fresh install old system either. Also now is unable to be seen from other G4 when linked. So now it just starts up with flashing firewire logo, and is unable to be seen by linked other mac. Is it lost for good? I connected two G4s via firewire cable to install an OS from one to the other. The install process had problem, so half installed. Could not start the target mac from cd to reinstall old system. Tried to wipe disc from linked mac but could not fully do so, now the disc wont show up as mounted hard drive. I dont know what else i can do to rescue the drive as it appears to be trapped in sorry state!! From reading a few articles, there seems to be no mention of how to get 'out' of firewire target mode so am i right in assuming that it should do so automatically on restart? Also note, holding 't' did not work to get into target mode, i had to go to startup preference and choose target mode restart from there initially.
