G-Raid with Thunderbolt Not Mounting

Postby ursafilms » Dec 25th, '13, 01:10

Just purchased a G-Raid 8TB Drive w/Thunderbolt. I also purchased the Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 Adapter cable. I cannot get the drive to mount to either my iMac (2009), MacBook Pro (2009) through the Firewire.

The Thunderbolt Port on both devices is, I believe, for display purposes only.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Hi ursafilms,

Thanks for posting. The thunderbolt to firewire adapter can only connect firewire devices to a thunderbolt equipped computer, not the other way. Thunderbolt drives only work on thunderbolt equipped computers. I would recommend returning the drive for exchange or refund.
