I have a 1st and 2nd generation Drobo. The second generation Drobo is plugged into a Mac Mini’s FW800 port. I’d like to be able to plug it into a FW400 port. Do I need a special cable for this, or is there some sort of adapter?
When unplugging the Drobo from the Mac ( say when upgrading Dashboard) can I unplug it from the Drobo? That is, does it matter which end is unplugged? The Mini’s FW800 port is fragile and in an inconvenient location.
What happens if you upgrade Dashboard without unplugging the Drobo ( and only put it to sleep)?
