Default Re: Dead Firewire ports

I had this problem a while back on a G4/733. I tried everything including zapping P-Ram, reinstalling the OS, different firewire devices, removing all PCI cards, etc. I was getting ready to take the computer in for a motherboard replacement and in a last ditch effort tried connecting it to another Mac via firewire and holding down "T" at startup. The other Mac recognized the G4 and firewire has been working ever since. Go figure...

Thanks Jordan, I'll give it a try. I assume "T" at startup tells it to look down the Firewire ports? Also, was the other MAC a G4 with a similar OS, or just another MAC with Firewire?
