http://www.datoptic.com/cgi-bin/web.cgi?product=IF8UC-S&detail=yes This is a SATA to firewire 800 and USB bridge. Can anyone give me a good reason why this would not work (through jerryrigged wires of course) through the SATA connector inside a unibody Macbook's optical SATA interface? I want the cheaper white Unibody because I like the screen better but cannot live without FIREWIRE. I need to boot off my laptop drive. There is also this converter. http://www.cooldrives.com/satofimiad2x.html I don't see why, if I pull out the optical drive, why I can't run firewire through the SATA port... Does anyone know about this?
