    my firewire 800 port seems really loose...
    it doesn't take much jostling for it to come off all together

    im worried because i plan to do live music with my powerbook
    and i have my sound card coming out of the firewire port...

    one slip over the cable
    comes deafening silence
    followed by tomatoes for sure...

    does anyone else have this problem?
    should i bring it in?
    bring it back?

    thanks in advance.. you all are always so helpful
