Detecting Firewire Drive

I have a drive that connects through USB, but firewire does not see it. Linux detects the Firewire bus, but not the drive. Linux seems to see it plug in, as the harddrive flashes for a few seconds. I've tried the following, but no luck, any ideas?

modprobe sbp2
modprobe raw1394
modprobe ohci1394
modprobe ieee1394

and then

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/fire

Thanks for any suggestions
