My 2Tb external Firewire 800/400 drive works perfectly with Catalina
Thanks. Now I have to figure out how to migrate from El Capitan to Catalina.

What Firewire interface do you use? What brand, chipset, specs of the Firewire hostcard? I'm interested 'cause I've got an old(er) audio interface on FW800. Pls let me know!
I got a Syba SY-PEX30016 3 Port 1x FW400 and 2x FW800. This card worked out of the box when I got it in 2016 and it has worked flawlessly thru all the MacOs updates since then.
