I have an October 2008 MacBook and I'm just getting into the video thing now. I am looking into getting an external hard drive so I don't kill my MB's hard drive prematurely. I'm looking into getting this, http://www.pcnation.com/web/details.asp?affid=304&item=BH2918, and was wondering if the Firewire ports on it can be used to download video from a camera. My MB doesn't have a Firewire port so I'm hoping this would fix that. I think it would be able to but the fact that it's an external drive and I don't have a lot of experience with these things makes me wonder if I might be wrong. I'd hate to spend the extra dough for a capability that won't work. Can anyone advise?
