On my iMac potter 2 Western Digital My Book hard disks (USB 2.0, FW400, FW800, eSATA) which are connected via Firewire 800th
All easily and reliably.
Now I have a third The My Book has no FW800, but eSATA, FW400 and USB2. It is currently connected s.den FW400 port.
Now comes my idea: Could I have this hard drive via eSATA s.eine the other two attach hard disks?
So a combination of distance iMac via FW800 to eSATA MyBook plate by plate to MyBook
Just try and do what I do not want broken.

What will it break down and ask for what you hope vvorallem you like this?
Why do not you invest time in a 4xPlatten NAS?
For what you should bring this issue Konstelationen! About a speed increase bzgl the data query / fuse?
The yes believe myself not you?
Also questionable is the aspect FW 800 port - so I've no Mac, but it gives the example 2xFW800 and FW400 ports at once?
Very questionable and more of my draggable Page not compre.
If I can hardly be synonymous to perform if and why a s.einen via eSATA Port eSATA disk connected disk are connected at all.
As far as I know gets the external drive the only way your data (in / out) as the host controller ports but to my knowledge are not designed for.
Conclusion so far of my page - but would rather buy NEN clever NAS with removable rack and have not at all then the only prob. Rather than start as any craft activities that are very questionable anyway!
Connect and configure NAS have peace - is yes so today on what days of simple but not at all better off more. 10 years ago this very day you had to put on the NEN server does it with a few mouse clicks - if you buy ne NAS solution and is good.
Sorry but "External Removable Disk" that says its name - is actually not designed for permanent work!
And WD My Book Part are definitely overpriced and not really optimal! As can put any additional PC as FileServer more than things.
