New to hubs. some questions -
I have a 2.0 Core 2 Duo Mini with a 250GB Lacie Mini HDD via FW in use now for Mac backup.
I just acquired a 500gb Lacie Hub (FW and USB2)
and a 160GB Lacie FW HDD.

Is power supplied thru hub so no power cord is needed for the added-on HDDs?

A little confused on the hub hookups but I think I'll figure it out. I have plenty of cable types,
USB- there's a type A and a type B.
Can you hook FW to USB2?

Only other hookups I use is USB for an ipod and a camera.

I will read the Lacie instructions again, and again.
I know some of the questions look stupid. I have searched on web for answers.

Depends on the device. Firewire does supply enough power so a 2.5" drive (laptop sized) could run off of just the power a Firewire connection supplies. However 3.5" (desktop sized) hard drives require more power than a Firewire connection can supply, so for those you would have to use the drive's power connection.

No, they are completely different and incompatible protocols.

Not at all. It can be quite confusing with a multitude of connections available, and devices like hard drive enclosure / hub combinations.

If you could write out exactly what each one is, perhaps a LaCie part number since all your drives are LaCie, chances are likely someone could make sense out of it and point you in the right direction. I think your 500GB hard drive and hub is one of these and your 250GB FW drive is one of these. Am I correct? And what model is your 160GB FW LaCie?

Thanks for your help. I connected Mac to the 500 hub via FW and FW hub out to the 250 I have. Not sure if the 500 is gonna work in my HTPC setup, the fan is noisy when running. I watched a movie from the 250 the 500 is stacked on top of, and the 500 got heated up from the 250 and the 500 fan ran a long time. Maybe I'll try different stacking.

Still testing to see how often the fan runs.

There's another thread where noise is an issue with the 500Gn drives - maybe an answer will pop up there.
