I think its a Firewire cable, but I need help finding where to get it.

If you look at the accessories tab on the page you linked to, you need either of the ones that are "4 pin to 6 pin" cables, because Macs use 6 pin FW400. Or you can get a 4 pin to 6 pin FW cable from any other source. Here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001659ZE/qid=1121029219/sr=8-5/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i5_xgl23/102-0919914-7504128?v=glance&s=electronics&n=507846) is a cheaper example from Amazon.com....

Yeh, Sony calls Firewire by the name 'i.link'.

Under accesories, the iLINK (4 pin to 6 pin) listed for $39 extra would be the firewire cable I believe you're referring to.
