    its not quite a mac problem but, i have a g5 powermac with a hfs+ drive and a ntfs drive using target disk mode
    windows 7
    under disk drive in device manager
    AAPL UNKNOWN MODEL IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device with a small yellow explanation mark and says
    This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    this works under linux and osx86 on this laptop so its definitely a windows issue but im not sure how to fix it

    i tried this:

    windows installed the driver fine but if i plug in the device it goes to a black screen for about 2 seconds then it resets the pc
    upon bootup if i have it plugged in it blue screen of death's
    with it unplugged it rebooted normally windows popped up with this info after reboot

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.
    Locale ID: 1033

    Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I am trying to connect my Macbook to a PC via Target Disk Mode and can't seem to get it to pop up as a readable hard disk. Any advice?
