    Thunderbolt cables are special cables to be used only between two Thunderbolt-capable devices. If your storage device has only FireWire ports, you need a Thunderbolt to Firewire adaptor, but these are pretty expensive as are the Thunderbolt-native storage devices currently on the market. Sorry no simple, inexpensive solutions, at lease not yet
