Is a Firewire port required for this? My aluminum macbook (late 2008) does not have a firewire port, just wondering if it will still work. Thanks

It has both a firewire and USB and comes with both cables in the box. I use the USB 2 on my iMac 27". Have had zero issues with the drive. Buy with confidence.

It has both usb and firewire. Metal case looks good and drive performs well. Will not disappoint.

It has two firewire ports and a mini USB. I would guess probably if you have the correct cable. Or you might be able to connect direct to your WIFI and go wirelessly.

You can use firewire or USB. In reality, I no longer use the FW connection with my MacBook Pro. I use one of it's USB ports.

The WD My Book Studio 2 TB Firewire 800, has a firewire port and a usb port, if your mack does not have a firewire port it will connect through the usb port although at a slower speed than if it did at the firewire connection.
