Default Re: CPU Overload (error 6101) on intel macbook pro

There have been a number of problems mixing FW400 interfaces and FW800 drives on their respective ports and speculation seems to point at the shared bus as culprit. When I first got my iMac (and it's an early 2007 model), I couldn't playback or record a session at all (I had a FW400 drive on the FW800 port and the projectMix I/O on the FW400 port). Chaining them both through the drive didn't prove to be much better, but once I put the projectMix I/O on the FW800 and dedicated the FW400 drive to the FW400 port, everything was good. (Other than I still can't sing worth a damn, but that's another story)
