External firewire drive to fs4

I currently have a fs1 which I have my external firewire drives I connect to it. Can I hook these same drives up to the fs4 for more storage?

Thanks

Dave

I think you can, but to be safe I would contact their (tech) support!

I was told no external hard drives from their tech support about a month ago. You can daisy chain fs-4Pro units to increase record time.

Now, that would be the pits.

I assume you connect the fs4 to the computer via firewire to transfer the data. Now, assuming it talks to a computer, why would it not talk to another drive?

Now, if they have made this a "design" feature, they really missed the boat with existing customers. Meaning, I have the fs1 plus a number of external firewire hard drives. I sure would like to use a few of these pieces with a new fs4.

Just contact them, speculating is not really helping this forward...

Hello,

It is not possible to daisy chain regular FireWire drives to FS-4. It is however possible to daisy chain two FS-4s together.
