Repair a broken FireWire interface
Authored by: fubbi on Mar 07, '06 09:00:26AM
I too have this problem, and my gut feeling tells me there is nothing wrong with the hardware. In console on my 1.67ghz powerbook i see the:
FireWire (OHCI) Apple ID 31 built-in: no valid selfIDs for more than 2 minutes after bus reset.
Then after resetting the pmu etc a cuple of times, for a brief moment I saw:
 FireWire (OHCI) Apple ID 31 built-in now active, GUID 001124ff fe87edea; max speed s800.
and then it went back to chewing about the first one. This feels like an important issue, as someone mentioned, solving this could spare many people from sending off their computer into the black hole that is apples repair program. does anyone else have any successstories or news on this? I really need my firewire back :-(
