Has anyone experienced crashes while transfering large (~600MB to 7GB) files from or to a firewire drive?? My system crashes most of the time ... G4 533 640MB RAM, Maxtor 1394 firewire 80 Gig ext. HD
Thanks all!

The usual questions come up here - what drivers are you using? What OS? - I've used the Intech drivers for our Firewire drive and it worked well (until the bridge board blew up - melted capacitor)...

I'm using the Maxtor drivers that came with it, on OS 9.1 I tried a software restore today in an effort to replace what may be corrupt ... the freeze would actually have a warning about the Finder shutting down ....
