Just to clarify, Time Machine is the software in the computer that does the backup your your external hard drive.

If the Firewire connection stopped working and you have to use the USB connection, your external hard drive sounds like it’s having a problem with the controller board.

If you have another firewire device, you can use that to be sure the firewire port on the computer is working.
