I have 18 Lacie 500 Gig hard drives Daisy Chained together. Its all for a final cut project. Lots of media. I cant help but think this is slowing me down. I have read a bunch of forum posts that say you can have up to 63 drives per chain. I have a additional firewire ports installed, a total of 4 ports, 3 from the card, and 1 normal. this on a G5, powerPC. Dual 2.7 GHz. Total information I need is hooked up is about 8 TB. I need specific suggestions. Thanks!
