    That firewire800 card will not work in a MBP. MBP is ExpressCard34.As a matter of fact, the only card worth looking at there is the firewire400 card.Why did Apple not go with the ExpressCard54 ?????:confused:

    are you serious? :confused: Man, how can such a new technology already have such differences and incompatibilities... Oh well. Sorry for the false alarm.

    It also (apparently) only supports windows. doubtful, but under the specs.


    Last night I was wondering why they didn't ExpressCard/54. Doesn't really make a difference to me. I haven't used my PCMIA slot on my powerbook, so it really doesn't matter to me.

    Especially since a EC54 slot will work with a EC34 device, but not the other way around:mad:
