This'll Work With a Mac, Right?

Any reason this drive wouldn't work with my MDD 867 via Firewire 400? And it would work with any current Mac, as well, right?

Using that drive right now on my Intel iMac via firewire 400 with no problems. There is no power switch on the drive. It goes into a stand-by/sleep mode when you power off your Mac or otherwise terminate the interface connection, drawing about 5 watts of power.

Is that one or two HDs in that enclosure?

At 6.89" H x 1.33" W x 6.77" L, it looks like it could hold two 500G HDs, which I wouldn't want.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I have that HD, and it's just one HD in there. Lotsa too-cute case design, that's all.

Thanks, Lew!

I agree about the case design.

I thought Seagates were to be avoided.

I'd hate to have it take a dump while filled with a music library.
