Title:

Does anyone make a firewire to USB cord?

Text:

My new MacBook that I picked up last April lacks a firewire port. I used to like to use my external iSight camera instead of the built-in camera back when I used my iBook G4 as my daily driver.
How can I hook this up again? Is there a wire that goes from firewire to USB? Can I cut a USB and a firewire and splice them together?
Once I find the cable, will my iSight work on my MacBook plugged into the USB port?
Thanks
Frank
