WD My Passport Studio does not work

I have a 500G WD My Passport Studio that will not boot a 17" (non-unibody) MBP over FW800 but will over USB.

The bootable volume on the WD is selectable in Prefs > Startup Disk but the computer will not boot from it if it's connected by FW800 (reverts to booting from the internal disk after a 30-sec delay).

Starting up with the option key also only shows the internal disk when the external is connected with FW800.

It'll boot over USB but i t ' s s o s l o w . . .
