i hope some of you can help me there is an audio interface i want to buy and use with my mac mini, but it NEEDS to have a 6pin firewire... but on checking the manual for the mini i cant find this info...



so, is the firewire on the mac mini a 6 pin on or not??



and on trying the search option with "firewire 6 pin Mac mini" i got





:The search term you specified (6) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.



now THATS just backwards



Much thanks



Rod

    6 pin refers to having the firewire port supply the power for the device. The mini firewire port does provide power, page 38 of the mini manual.
