    Hi guys ...

    I'm using a macbook pro 13inch mid-2010
    i have a thunderbolt to usb3 adaptor, but a thunderbolt adapter can't be used on my macbook since it has only a firewire port.
    So, is there an adapter that i can use on my macbook to convert the thunderbolt adapter to a usb3 device ?
    In the end,i want to have a usb3 port on my macbook for faster file transfer ,,

    Thanks ...

    Nope, won't happen.

    You're stuck with USB 2.0 and FireWire 800 until you get a new machine.

    The fastest port on your computer is the Firewire 800. 800Mbps is the limit. Even if there were firewire to tb or firewire to usb 3 adapeters, you wouldn't get the speed of usb3.
