As far as I am aware these adaptors only work from the computer to a device, not as you are trying from a device to a computer. This is because the device (your hard disk) cannot load and run the required drivers to support the adaptor. So the following applies
New Mac with built-in Thunderbolt ----> Thunderbolt to FireWire adaptor ---> FireWire device
(above will work)
Old Mac without built-in Thunderbolt <---- Thunderbolt to FireWire adaptor <--- Thunderbolt device
(above will not work)

Thanks... That was my guess... I thought I'd at least would see the device on my mac mini, even though I might not be able to "use" it, but I guess it just doesn't connect at all and therefore not even displays on my mac mini.
