Dual hard drive docks w/Firewire availability
Are there any dual removable hard drive docks available, preferrably with multiple interfaces (Firewire and eSATA, alternatively just Firewire 800)? The Newertech Voyager fits the bill except it only houses one drive. I need to be able to back up from one external drive to another.
There are lots of dual drive docks out there, but none have Firewire. Obviously made for PCs they only have eSATA and/or USB.

I don't think you're going to find -any- firewire dual docks.
There are some dual docks out there with USB3, also may be a few with USB3/eSATA.
If it's firewire connectivity you want, I believe your only solution is to buy TWO single-bay docks...

I think you're right. They're mostly USB 2 (a few are USB 3.0) or eSATA.
eSATA would be the best choice for my Mac Pro but I also have a Powerbook (I'll probably retire it soon and possibly replace it with a more recent MacBook Pro, but none of these have eSATA. USB is a joke for large file transfers.
Are there Firewire 800 to eSATA converters around?
