    Apple announced there would be a Thundebolt to Firewire adaptor coming soon. Until that arrives, you may wish to consider other options as follows.
    If you have access to the underlying 2.5" SATA I/II drive inside your current storage device, you may also be able to use the Seagate Thunderbolt adaptor for their GoFlex Pro series of external drives, was their adaptor can handle the 2.5" HDD directly
