    I was about to work on this video project on my MBP 13" and realized something. When my Video camera is connected to my Firewire 800 port, I don't have anymore port to connect my External Hard Drive where I want to save my project.

    I see that my old Lacie has two Firewire 800 port on its back, can I connect Lacie on my MBP and then connect video camera on Lacie's other Firewire 800 Port?

    Anyone who has MBP 13" how do you connect External Hard Drive & Video Camera @ same time? I hadn't had this issue with my PowerBook G4, because I used Firewire 400 to connect my Camera, and Firewire 800 port for Lacie. USB is too slow for my video project so it's not an option.

    I appreciate your help! :)
