Hi folks,

I bought a Macbook Pro (with firewire port) about 3 months ago as part of a home recording set up. I have a couple of condenser mics knocking around etc, but my question is regarding the Firewire sound card I've bought.

Its a M-Audio Firewire Audiophile (RRP around 115). The cable I was given (Belkin Firewire cable - grey/red http://www.office365.co.uk/Computer-...Wire-Cable.htm ) doesn't seem to fit the Firewire port on the Macbook... now I apologise if I'm wasting everyone's time with my question but I'm really desperate to start recording some music (I'm better at playing it than recording it - I promise!)

If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it (wrong cable/adapter/etc)

Kindest Regards,

Macmaverick

This is the Firewire cable... not fitting the port?!

Kindest Regards.

Have not really looked at the new MBP ports, but am pretty sure the FW800 port would be 9 pin, not 6 pin.



6 pin port on left, 9 pin port next to it, two USB ports on the right side


I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Assuming it is a 2010 model, then yes the Firewire port on the MBP is Firewire 800 and not 400, so you will need a nine pin cable as our moderator has pointed out. Here are the MBP 2010 specs:-

MacBook Pro "Core i5" 2.53 17" Mid-2010 Specs (Mid-2010 17", MC024LL/A, MacBookPro6,1, A1297, 2352*) @ EveryMac.com
