my firewire to my storage device USB 2.0 has suddenly stopped working
FireWire and USB are different connection mechanisms. They use different ports and cables. Provide some clarification and details.
It's the original connector that came with the device. A heavier silver wire - definitely not the little flat usb.
Still doesn't do it for me. FireWire to USB device adapter? Peruse http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-firewire-to-usb-adapter.htm for more on this. Alternatively, contact the USB device manufacturer.
