hi I have a LaCie 40 gig Portable External HDD that is connected up to the iBook via Firewire. As i only have 1 Firewire port i want to connect my iPod mini to that port and my LaCie to a USB 2 port simple you say? no its not The mac Refuses to mount the LaCie via USB 2 even if the system profiler lists it, but disk utility does not. I have tried everything i can think of different USB cables, formatting it god knows how many times. It works over Firewire fine no problems. Even my PC (with MacDrive) will read it via USB 2! any ideas?
