This is probably a stupid question, but... I recently got a few external hard drives for video editing that have Firewire 800 ports on the back. I have a G5 that has Firewire 800 capability so I thought there would be no problem. The trouble I'm having in that it seems like the Firewire port on the back of my Mac is male and would require a female cable to be plugged into it. The cables that came with my hard drive are male on both ends. I've searched all over fore a Firewire 800 cable that is female on one end or looks like it would plug into the back of my Mac but I can only find male cables. Any ideas?
