MOVED: Firewire devices not working...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
The other day I was listening to MP3's from my firewire hard drive, and all of a sudden they stopped. So I look at the desktop and the hard drive icon is no longer there, so I try unhooking the hard drive and hooking it back up and rebooting, still nothing. So I figured something got screwed up in OS X, so I booted into OS 9 and still no hard drive. At that point I reset the PRAM (CMD+Opt.+P+R) and still no hard drive, so I pushed the reset button on the back of the powerbook and still no hard drive. At this point I hooked it up to my powermac firewire port and it mounted fine in OS X.

Basically what I am trying to figure out is if it is hardware or software related, if so how can I fix it? BTW the Powerbook warranty is up as of 60-days ago.

Any advice would be appreciated.
