I have an alesis multimix 12 FIREWIRE which is FIREWIRE 400.  it was working fine on my PC.  now I have a new iMAC and it only has 1 firewire 800 port.  I bought a 400 to 800 firewire cable and tested the cable with a FIREWIRE 400 hard drive and it works fine.  HOWEVER, when I plug it into the ALESIS MULTIMIX FIREWIRE, it doesnt work.  it doesnt show up in system profile or in the alesis multimix control panel.  I could only find one discussion about it which said somethng about not getting enough power to the device when you use s 800 to 400 cable.  However, there was no solution.  is there anything I can do to get this working or am I stuck and need to invest in something new (Thanks Apple)


.. Please help ... Dave

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
