I have 2 identical Drives installed in their own FireWire cases.  Drive Setup under OS X will recognize them and format them but I can not combine them into a RAID.  I would like to stripe them together.  Any ideas?

Are they chained or each on a separate firewire bus?

Can you do it with any other scheme? Will it allow you to mirror etc?

Not sure then...I'd be curious to see what apple says if you shot them an email. Maybe it doesnt support firewire yet?

I installed them internally and I still can't add them.  It might be the size.  They are 160 GB each.

Hard Disk Speed Tools was the only program that I could find that would do the Job.  Anyone else used this program?

Also check with the drive maker that both drives have the same firmware.
