Thanks Martin, I tried but I'm afraid it didn't help.

damaged cable? I'm guessing you tried the same cable in all sockets.

I tried both the FW 400 and 800 ports with different cables. I know for sure that the FW400 calbles are ok but did not function on the MacPro. So it didn't solve my problem but thanks anyway.

lacie firmware caused this?

Well I now believe that my whole FW conection is corrupt. I tried different cables and connection through different FW ports (also some in my monitor) and no device corresponds or mounts. In the system profiler I get the message that FW devices can't be displayed. I have other devices that also connects with FW but none of these mount either on my MacPro. I tried several things now such as unplugging all the cables and then slowly building it up and begin to suspect that my FW is done on this machine. It's a pity that you can't test the functioning somehow other than it's not working.

Here is the boilerplate article on the subject, with a few (very few) side links to troubleshooting:Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers
