Ive change my iMac with a new one, iMac 27 late 2013 slim
and the only ports that i have is USB 3.0 and thunderbolt.
Also I have two different external hard drive that I try to connect to my new iMac.
First is a Lacie 2TB that is connected trough USB 3.0
The second one is iomega UltraMax plus 1TB that now i can’t connect to my new iMac.
Iomega external hard drive have 3 x 2.0 USB, one eSata, one firewire 400 and two Firewire 800.
I try connect trough USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 but nothing.
Then I try to connect Iomega trough Lacie external har drive via firewire 800 port.
But no connection.
I try also to connect Iomega to Lacie with esata cable, then Lacie to iMac with USB 3.0
But no result.
What option I have to connect external hard drive to my iMac?
Why I can’t connecting?

How were you connecting the drive to your previous computer? $30 gets you a Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 adapter straight from the Apple site. That should work just fine, and you’ll get better speeds than USB2 anyways.
