frankly, I don't see anything that might indicate that it's recognised.
All I'm seeing in the dmesg is your 1394 device is 'sort-of' detected but it's not 
assigned a partition.

What does 

cat /proc/partition states?

if 1394 is anything like USB, can you do a 

tail -f /var/log/messages 

and then plug the HDD into the slot and email back on the output.
