SubjectRe: 2.6.35-rc6 to 2.6.32.16: JuJu firewire issues
Hi Stefan,
thank you for your care of this issue. I have just returned the crappy
IcyBOX IB-250StUE-B back to the reseller. On the circuit board there was
Apr 2008 timestamp (regarding the JMicron JMB 353 chip doing the SATA to
FireWire 1394a + USB 2.0 conversion).

I tried in the morning to connect the IcyBox to this laptops internal
Ricoh Co Ltd R5C552 IEEE 1394 Controller but had issues to power-up the drive
at all. Not even using USB hub to supply power to it. I connected it to
the ricoh chip via a 6 to 4 pin cable but also tried the not very good
Kouwell 7004 PCMCIA card (which does not supply enough power unless I
buy external, optional power supply of unknown specs and plug it into the
PCMCIA card).

Many thanks for your care,
Martin
P.S.: Yes, laptop (computer B) is a single-core, old P4-M computer with ICH3
chipset.
