Problem: mounting multiple Firewire CF readers
Feb 6, 2013

Does anyone know what the problem is?

I'm using a Mac Pro (early 2009) which has 4 Firewire ports. Today I connected two Firewire Compact Flash readers with separate cables to two FW ports (I want to be able to export files from two cards at the same time). The first CF card mounted properly. When I put the second CF card in the second Firewire CF reader it caused both readers to crash. The error message reads that I didn't disconnect the card reader properly (which doesn't make any sense).
