    Firewire question on my old mac...
    Got an old g4 imac with max speed 400 firewire. How many pins is that likely to be? 4 or 6? Need to know as i need a firewire cable to hook my old mac to my new one for migration. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    G4 imacs use a 6 pin firewire port

    Thanks for the info but just to check, this is a 700mhz powerpc g4 from about 2001. Definately a 6 pin firewire?

    Yes it will have 6 pins. I think only notebooks and digital cameras etc have 4 pins.
