I have three FW400 hard drives all linked together hooked up to my iMac (see sig). The last one in the chain seems to drop off and i have to power cycle it to get it to remount. The drive does not show up in Disc Utility and I do not see a device removal error. Should i get a FW400->800 adapter and use the other port on the iMac to spread the external hard drive love?

Using the other port would be a good idea, I'd guess - maybe it would even be faster? Do all the drives have their own power supply?
