I have an 15" Aluminium Powerbook which according to my manual has both Firewire 400 and Firewire 800.
I have recently purchased an old Dual 2.0Ghz Power Mac which also has a Firewire 800 port.
I would like to backup my Powerbook to a partition on the Power Mac. Since I will be backing up approximately 90Gb I figured Firewire 800 is the way to go.
Firstly, am I correct in assuming backing up 90Gb via Firewire will be considerably faster than 800, in otherwords noticeable?
Secondly if Firewire 800 is the way to go can someone tell me whether I need to purchase a Firewire 800 6 pin or 9 pin cable?
I have had a look in my manuals and cannot see which type I have. The Powerbook and Power Mac both have the same sort of square connection which is different to the rectangular ones I have been using for Firewire 400.
Any help will be much appreciated.
