Check out this Wikipedia article for guidance IEEE 1394 interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The various types of Firewire are discussed along with pictures of each connector. There is a picture of a Firewire 800 connector in that section of the article. Look at the tip only. Ignore the large area at the rear of the picture.

As an alternative look at the back of your drive and see if the connections are marked. Most of them are and it should be possible to compare it to the connector on your Mac. The Firewire 400 connector is larger and more rectangular than a Firewire 800 connection.
