Can I use a FireWire adapter to link a Mac book Pro and an iPad air?

I have a faulty hard drive in my Mac book pro and need to recover data from it before swapping hard drives. I cannot perform a backup because I cannot get on the laptop. I don't have another Mac available but have an iPad air. Is it possible to use a FireWire adapter to make the iPad air a host and the Mac book pro the target to recover data from?

  • No. The iPad has a Lightning port, but neither Thunderbolt nor Firewire.
