Computer Ports: All You Need to Know
Firewire 800 Port
Plugs in: Newer external hard drives, video cameras, and older iPods with a plug that matches this port.
Worth knowing: This is the newer and faster version of the common Firewire 400 and therefore takes a different plug. If you have more 400-compatible devices than 800 ones, you can buy a cable that converts an 800 port to a Firewire 400.
