Does a 6-4 FW cable that worked on the Core Duo work on the Core i7?

I just pulled out my old Panasonc GS 250, which I used to connect my camera to my Core Duo with a 6-4 cable, but now if appears that cable won't fit into the firewire port on the Core i7. Is this because the Core i7 is FW 800 while the Core Duo is FW 400? Either way ... do I need a new cable? 


Right now my video is stranded on the tape in my camera  : /


Thanks for your help.
