2.4. Why doesn't my firewire hard drive when I'm using a Hamamatsu firewire camera?

When a Hamamatsu firewire camera is running, it reserves all the firewire bandwidth on the bus (it must do this to work properly). This means that other firewire devices such as portable hard drives won't work.

The solution is to either use a USB external drive, or install a firewire card (if you have a computer with PCI slots) and plug the drive into a firewire port on the card.
