Old eMac not working, you all tell me I need a firewire cable to clear all my files to my new Mac Mini, I just looked them up, eMac says "Firewire 400", while Mini says "Firewire 800". Is this going to work? I had tons of my CDs and over 25,000 photos in eMac. I don't have hard copies of them. I had tried years ago to burn CDs of the pix, when I got my laptop, but when I opened them, phooey, many were only thumbnails. I'm not sure what type the connection on my Seagate 1.5TB Ext HD is. I didn't format it to make the Mac switch when I came to the Mini from the Windows laptop. I didn't have it when the eMac was working. Now, anyone able to tell me what cable I need, please help.


Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Samsung Display
