Can the second Firewire port on Dv nowAv be used by a Firewire drive ( Pyro style) as an external storage device ?

No, because DV.now AV uses a proprietary driver, not the generic Windows driver. You can let Windows Plug&Play install the generic driver instead of the DV.now AV driver, but then you will not be able to use FAST.forward.

Ther are two Firewire ports so that you can have two DV devices (eg. a VCR and a camcorder) connected at the same time. That way you do not have to keep unplugging them at the back of the PC.
