No I don't believe you can mix Firewire and USB.

Possibly you could use an adaptor of some sort.

The best would be to buy a PCI card with some Firewire ports for the computer that doesn't have it.


Good luck.

Do both systems have ethernet ports? If so, you can just use a crossover cable or network cable to connect the two or even set up a home network, http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....crossover+cable

You could just buy a firewire card and install it to the desktop, assuming you have a PCI slot available, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16815124032

Make sure the cable you purchase is called a cross-over or null cable. They look like a regular cable
