Ok, I just found out what the problem is.
The Firewire readers which I use (Hama Traveldrive) have the same ID.
That's why the Firewire bus crashes once I insert the second CF card in the second reader. I just sent the support an email and asked if it's possible to manually change the device ID.

Also - do the cards have the same name - that might be the issue.

No, that won't be an issue. The Mac shows you the name, but internally it uses the ID number. It knows that two hard disks with the same name are not the same disk.
