    Does anyone know where I can get a firewire hub??? When I used to work at Best Buy we sold them, but I cant seem to find them anymore. I just have a few devices that need firewire and this Imac only has 1 so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great!

    I've been using this USB/Firewire hub for almost a year now and have had no problems whatsoever. Plus, it's only $25, so it is plenty cheap.

    You do know you can daisy-chain FireWire devices, right?

    show me the ports.....

    Not all devices have dual FW ports, such as MacBooks, many Firewire scanners and printers, 2.5" external FW cases... and my G4 tower with a damaged FW port.

    I found some by Belkin and others at amazon.com, and buy.com. it just depends on how many ports you want, and if you want a USB hub in there too...
