Firewire Issues MacPro DesktopLocked
I was curious if anyone is having sporatic connectivity problems with their MacPro firewire?
I have noticed the front 400/800 connectors will fail to connect with my video camera 60 percent of the time, while the rear 400/800 has no problems and will always connect. This problem only affects my camera.
Obviously I use the rears, but it would be nice to be able to use them all after paying over $8,000.00 for this system.
Apples website doesn’t show this to be a problem. I purchased this in December 2007.
