Crazy FireWire story
Authored by: CrazyJack on Jul 13, '07 02:03:23PM

Yes, crazy things can happen. I once had my powerbook connected to my desktop with a firewire-cable and tcp/ip over firewire. While copying huge files I put my iPod in the Dock (connected to my desktop) to charge the battery.

What happened then was that my desktop started syncing the iPod and afterwards disconnecting it, while simultaneously the powerbook mounted the iPod as well, starting itunes etc. This eventually corrupted the disk to the level that I had to restore the iPod from scratch and re-sync my whole library....
