windows 7 cable for firewire 800?

i bought a lacie rugged and it has firewire 800/ 400 but i don't have a port for the cables they gave me i need a adapter or another cable

If you have a desktop computer, your best bet is to buy a firewire expansion card. These are in the $10-40 range, depending on the interface (PCI or PCI express) and speed rating (800/400). http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006519%2040000073&IsNodeId=1&srchInDesc=firewire

Laptops without a built in firewire port need an ExpressCard or PCMCIA card slot for the appropriate adapter.

What you can't do (at least as far as I know) is find a firewire to usb adapter. Even if such an item does exist, you'll take a major hit on performance as USB 2.0 can only sustain about half the speed of a firewire 400 link.

EDIT - DJ makes an excellent point. Firewire connectors come in 4, 6 and 9 pin flavors. If you have any of those on your PC, you can get an adapter cable.
