QA Apple Firewire Cable
Product No Longer Available
What kind of Firewire do I need to connect a new MacBook Pro 15" to an old Powerbook G4 17"?
I want to use Migration Assistant from my old Powerbook G4 running OS X 10.3.9 to a new MacBook Pro 15". Will this work? What product will work (is there a comparable 6-9 pin version)?

400 to 800.

If the older computer has firewire 400 then it will work. You can use IPFW (IP over Fire Wire) to address it like any networked device.

No this will not work. You might want to use Ethernet instead.
