I currently have a firewire 800 desktop hard, and want to move the contents onto a another drive. If the other drive I get also has firewire 800, I know I can daisy chain them together.
I was wondering, because firewire runs as peer-to-peer, and I read the devices are able to do low level memory access themselves. I was also wondering if they would be able to transfer directly from one drive to the other without involving the CPU? Is there a way to do this?
