Does anyone know of a Thunderbolt (mini display port) to 4-pin IEEE 1394 (firewire) adapter? Can't locate such a cable/adapter on the web. Adapter is needed for video editing. The iMac's only Firewire 800 port is now being used for an external hard drive.

Thanks.

If anyone carries such a cable, it'll be the folks at monoprice.com.

I haven't seen anything yet - thunderbolt peripherals are just now starting to come out. The only thing I've seen that is even remotely close - isn't available until September (estimated). That is the Belkin Thunderbolt dock
Belkin : Thunderbolt Express Dock
Which will have firewire as one of the interfaces.

I guess - in theory the Thunderbolt Display also has a firewire connector on it but that is an expensive way to get to firewire as well.

I haven't seen monoprice get into Thunderbolt yet.

Thank you for the suggestion, chscag. I couldn't find the adapter on the monoprice web site but hope that customer service has a solution.

You sure that hard drive doesn't have an extra Firewire 800 port on the back of it? Most Firewire peripherals can be daisy-chained.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
