Ok, still a *nix n00b, and the answer is likely staring me in the face. Please be patient.
FW400 external drive will not mount on system reboot. FW cable needs to be disconnected and reconnected post login or boot for the drive to be recognised and mount correctly.
Drive has no faults, and functions correctly with no errors after it is detected and mounted by system post disconnect and reconnect of the cable.
