Hi.  Just to add.  If we assume that you are trying to get Fourier to match the answer of ListCorrelate..

One can also just reverse the list instead of Rotate.  For example:

SetOptions[
{Fourier,InverseFourier},
FourierParameters->fftSignal];

v=RandomInteger[{1,9},8]
{9,5,6,4,3,4,8,6}

ListCorrelate[v,v,{1,1}]
{283,257,258,237,238,237,258,257}

InverseFourier[Fourier[Reverse[v]]*Fourier[v]]  //Round  //Reverse
{283,257,258,237,238,237,258,257}

InverseFourier[Fourier[Reverse[v]]*Fourier[v]]  //Round  //RotateRight
{283,257,258,237,238,237,258,257}

%%% == %% == %
True

My guess is that you are trying to use ListConvolve ??
