    I just got a new 500 gig MyBook external HD to add to my 250 MyBook External. My 250 hooks up to my MBP with USB. Is it possible to hook my 500 gig to y 250 with firewire and have my MBP read both of them through the one usb connection?


    i hope that makes sense.

    i don't think that'll work since it's 2 different standards...
    you could daisy chain firewire to firewire... but i've never seen usb to usb daisy chaining before, or a mix and match.

    Negative ghost rider. If you're moving data between them though, or hitting them both at once otherwise, leave them on separate busses - it'll be faster :)
