Question Confusing Boot Problem


If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

I have made a full clone of my Macbook Pro's internal HD. I'm running OS X 10.5.7. The clone drive is a Lacie Rugged 500gb external drive. It supports firewire 800 which is what I'm using. It's been formatted in Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

When I first ran SD it made the clone no problem, I did "back up all files" and requested it restart from the clone, which it did. Superduper! It works.
Since then I've tried to boot from it again but to no avail. I've tried holding down the option key on start up but it just boots into my Mac HD and when I've tried to select it from startup disk in system preferences it just won't show up

Hope that's clear.
