Can anyone share any links for this product? I have seen windows only versions, but none for the mac. I read an article on Low End Mac about the existence of such a cable, but have not been able to find one.

There are lots of sites which advertise a Firewire to USB adapter cable or just plain adapter. The problem is that they do not say whether or not the adapter will work for OS X and Mac hardware in general. You would think that they should but not according to this article dated Oct 2008:

What exactly are you trying to do that you need to convert FW to USB?
