Nope. the firewire port looks quite a bit different from USB. It is a totally different architechture.

I technically don't know how the firewire architecture is faster, but it is. USB can't maintain those speeds of 480mbps while Firewire can. However you don't get firewire pen drives and mice and such. You will only find firewire in stuff that needs speed, like Hard drives, camcorders, and stuff like that.
