    Hi

    How can I know if my firewire port is working?
    I remember I tried starting one of my Mac's and connecting it using firewire...

    I don't know which one's firewire port is working... since neither one of them seemed to recognize itself when i started in target modus...

    thnx.

    (sorry for reposting but never got a reply)

    An SMC reset should cure your FireWire ills - I had a very similar problem (all FireWire ports were dead) in the past. Resetting the SMC cured it.
