HT1661: How to use and troubleshoot FireWire target disk mode

Learn about How to use and troubleshoot FireWire target disk mode

HT1661 My G4 iBook (ox10.4) goes into target mode but my Mac mini (10.8.2) will not see it. I have an firewire adapter from 400 to 800. I have a G5 that sees it just fine, so it is not a connection problem unless it is the Mac mini's port. Ideas?
