Thread: firewire 800 compatability
03-19-2004, 06:49 PM #1jp_tixGuestfirewire 800 compatability
I need to connect my 3gen iPod to the 9-pin Firewire 800 port on my Powerbook. It says in the manual I need a third-party adapter.
Anyone know who makes these? All of my music is stored on an external firewire HD, so i need to have both connected to transfer the music...
Any disadvantages connecting the iPod to the 800 port?
I think I can make this work without the adapter if I connect the iPod to
one of the ports on the external firewire HD, are there any disadvantages to this ?
