    I am thinking about to have a memory stick with OS X on were ever I go and I would like to have an firewire memory stick, is there any out there? been looking on google and Iam thinking on making my own, but then you also need to get the computer to understand what it's your plugin in

    Is it worth using a firewire stick or just use an USB one?

    Have any one tried making a firewire stick out of an USB one? how did it go?

    Why would you need a FireWire drive? In most cases, USB 2.0 is fine with its ~35MB/s real world bandwidth. In fact, most thumb drives can't even achieve that.

    I guessed so, then I will try on with an Mac OS X boot up USB memory stick =)
