PowerMac G5 won't recognize SuperDuper Backup on External FW Drive

I just upgraded to Tiger on my ibook. I used Super Duper to backup my drive onto a external firewire drive. Then, used migration assistant, it located my drive and restored everything flawlessly.

Now, I've done the same thing with my PowerMac G5 (dual 2.5) and when using Migration Assistant and selecting, "Choose another volume", the Firewire external hard drive is not showing up. What's frustrating is that I can see the firewire drive and access all of it's contents right on the desktop, but Migration Assistant acts like there's no volume to copy from.

What's going on? Is there a way to fix this? I could manually copy over stuff, but I'm not sure if I would do it right and if there were any things i need to know. (It also quite frankly, makes my purchase of superduper a drag since I wouldn't even use it.)

Also, an aside comment:
I just copied manually DVD Studio Pro to my applications to see if it would work. Unfortunately it asked for my serial number and I had to track down my original boxes. With SuperDuper and migration assistant, will it transfer the serial numbers too?
