    I'm buying a new 21.5 inch iMac tomorrow, and I want to transfer all of my files (.mp3's, .avi's, wallpapers, etc.) from my macbook via firewire.

    The problem is that the iMac has a firewire 800 port, and the macbook has a firewire 400 port. If I buy a firewire 400 cable, will it work on the iMac?

    You need FW400 to FW800 cable or just hook them to the same network with Gigabit Ethernet and use that
