I have a friend here who while owning his dual G5 literally lost all of his 200GB of sample data because of the firewire issues on the G5.

He tried several different HD with external enclosures as well as with external HDs that come with cases already and alays when turning on the HD his data disappears.

You can imagine how losing 200GB of dtata must feel esp. after you've lost it 4+ times.

And he has to convert all of his libraries to MAch 5.

Anyway, my question is whether or not others here have had similar problems.

I sometimes dream of a G5 bt that situation alone really sours my ambition.

Is his situation unique or have others also lost their data via FW 400/800 on a G5 tower?
