  • First thing to establish is what cable you need to connect, it seems like you aren't using a USB cable ( as they have a standardised size ). It's likely that you're using a Firewire cable instead of a USB cable.

    If the ports are the same, it could be the case that you just need a wire with less sheathing on the connector.
