      I just purchased the new 27″ imac. It has the new firewire 800 port for importing from cameras. I had an ’08 imac previously and the cable that I used is found in stores everywhere and will not fit into my new computer’s firewire port. Does anyone know where i can find the new 800 port cable for importing footage from cameras in stores??

      Need it ASAP.. please help!

      by the way I live in Florida,I’ve already tried best buy, office depot, and compUSA.

      If you have no store recommendations any links to online purchases would be greatly appreciated

      thanks

      I’m pretty sure there is only one type of connection for FW800, unlike FW400, which has 4-pin and 6-pin.

      Are you sure you’re using a FW800 cable?

      Not exactly sure which cable you will need but when in doubt, go to newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=firewire+800+cable
