    I basically need to connect an older iMac to a new MBP but they both have different FW connections - I always get confused when it comes to cables so if anyone can point me in the right direction it'd be grand, cheers.

    Do I then just need a 9pin male to male for some Target Disk Mode-age?

    I have one like this and use it to connect FW400 disk to MBP unibody FW800.

    Does anybody have any reliable UK online stores that stock this sort of stuff? Shipping from the USA adds around $25 to the order...
