    Hi

    I have a old version MBP 15" with both FW400 and FW800 ports. And I find I use them both when capturing from HDV over FW400 to an external FW800 drive.

    So my question is... Before I consider upgrading - How can I do this on the new MBP's

    Thanks

    Get an ExpressCard/34 card with FireWire on it. Relatively simple and straightforward.

    Except that there have been multiple reports that it doesn't work...
