    Ok I have a separate external enclosure which only offers usb and for one drive only. My iMac sees both drives when i put them one at a time in there. I have formatted them to extended journaled. I place both in this new enclosure since I need firewire 800 and 4tb. It doesn't mount or show up in disk utility. What am I doing wrong. I have tried the fw 800, fw400 and usb on this drive enclosure. I have powered off the unit and restarted my mac and still nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help.

    if you have either one you must use identical hdds

    They are both this drive

    The enclosure looks like those, but the part number I think is wrong. The one I bought wasn't for mirroring just a hdd bay. tThe part number on my receipt is OWCMEFW936AL2.
    Anyways when I was on the live chat thinking about ordering it in April.
    I told the guy I need a bay I could put two drives in, have fw 800 and at least 4tb of storage for movies pics files and stuff. I didn't need redundancy. So i bought this one with the exact same drives anyway, but nothing. He did say that the max I could put in it would be 2x 2tb.

    Ok I just typed owc firmware 936ap in google. It took me to their website and I found the download. Hopefully this works.

    Thanks.
