Just upgraded my computer from a G5 with a MOTU828mkII audio interface to a 12 core 2.66GHz MacPro.  I was planning to use the MOTU828mkII with the new computer but the 828mkII has a 400 firwire connection and the MacPro only accepts 800 firewire connection.  Is there any way to connect the 828mkII to the MacPro?

Regards

Can't you just by a FW400-to-FW800 adapter?

I had some trouble with my 828 mkII with a PCI firewire card once and learned that they can be picky. this was on windows though.  I think they might work better with a texas instrument chipset.
