    Specs:
    MacPro v.10.4.11 & MacBook Pro (2007)
    Unhappy Mac Pro to Mac Book Pro Firewire cable
    Can anyone tell me which cable I need to connect a MacPro from 2007 to a Mac Book Pro purchased in 2011?

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    The new Macbook Pro's have FW 800 ports, the Macbooks should have (as I recall) a FW400 cable.. so something like this would work

    For only $3.84 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 9 PIN/ 6PIN BILINGUAL FireWire 800 - FireWire 400 Cable, 6FT, Black | 9 - 6 pin IEEE-1394B Firewire Cables

    Mactracker advises a 2011 MacBook Pro has a FW800 port, so a FW800 cable and connect the two together.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Oops ... I need to buy the fw 800 cables, all I have are the old fw cables that do not connect with the MacBkPro (2011). I now see the fw 800 ports on both my MacBkPro and my MacPro. Thank you!
