10.6: Make some older FireWire drives work again
Authored by: blgrace on Oct 13, '09 01:04:38PM

I guess one way you could safely test new / old drivers is to use:
Kextload and kextunload.

That way you don't have to move or install anything until you are sure it is working for you.
kextunload /Sytem/Library/Extensions/IOFirewireSerialBusProtocolTransport.kext

kextload ~/path/to/otherversion/IOFirewireSerialBusProtocolTransport.kext

plug your drive in and see if it works.
