External Harddisk via FireWire



Hi,
since a view weeks I try to connect my externel harddisk to my laptop computer 
containing a usb and a firewire interface.

'cause I've just have slow usb 1.1 on my notebook I tried it via IEEE 1394 
interface. 

The HDD will be detected, the partitions, too. But mounting a partition fails. 
Via usb it works. Before I forget: within windows it works well via firewire.

Here is the syslog output:

But when trying to mount the vfat partition on it I just get a "FAT: invalid 
media value (0x40)". And fdisk doesn't see any partition.

Anyone an idea what I can do? Or where I can find more information about such 
problems? Or where to get a list of devices working with linux via firewire? 
Well, as I said: via usb it works. But 1.1 is that slow...

Ciao

Rajko
