1394 v USB

  the-emsworth-kid 10:04 22 Mar 2006

Following a power problem (an electrician turned of the supply while the system was running!) my 2 Maxtor HDDs went missing from My Computer. They were 1394 daisy-chained.

Can't get the disk manager to find them - Norton Disk Doctor similary. However one of the disks is dual 1394/USB and if I USB connect it XP recgnises it with no problems and the data is readable.

Any suggestions please - for instance do I have to do something to get 1394 active again?

check in network connections via control panel you may find 1394 has become disabled and it may be a matter of right click/enable.

Thanks - 1394 apparently enabled but I tried a repair anyway - got message saying Windows could not finish repair as TCP/IP not enabled for this connectin?????

i would suggest disable it then reboot and see what happens if it does not auto enable then try manual enable.

Sorry to be dense but do you mean disable 1394 before the reboot or TCP/IP - which I wouldn't know how to do.
