I'd stay away from FW800 drives, they've been known to cause problems on the firewire bus when used in conjunction with a Firewire interface like the 002s which leads to the interface losing connection with the computer. You can search this forum and find lots of recommendations on compatible firewire drives, and if you're dead set on an FW800 drive you should get a PCMCIA firewire card for your laptop to run your interface from, which eliminates the issue of mixing 400/800 devices on the built-in bus.
