Yes, it's possible. But you'll need to make sure that your computer is also connected to the mixer via firewire 800. You can't connect only the hard drive to your RM mixer without a computer and record directly to the hard drive. What we really recommend is connecting a hard drive directly to the computer via a USB 2 or USB 3 connection, as it'll take some of the strain off of the firewire bus.
