    Mojo on MacbookPro FW800?


    I´m thinking of updating my Composer from 2.8.3 to 3.5. Currently it is runnig fine on a G5 2.7Dual / OS X 10.4.11)

    But 3.5 fine is not supported for G5 Dual... is that true? Any experiences?

    I also want to use the Composer with my new MacBookPro (2.53 / Dec08), but:

    Does the Mojo run with FW800? And if not, can i connect it to the express-slot?

    Who has experiences with that kind of configuration?

    Thanks a lot

    Re: Mojo on MacbookPro FW800?

    whilee , I was recently in the exact same situation with my G5 Quad.  3.5 is Intel only so I upgraded to a re-furbed Woodcrest unit with 16Gb RAM and for 1/2 the cost of a new Nehlahem.  I added a nVidia 8800 GT with 512MB and it works great!

    I also bought a new Unibody 17" 2.93 and I am pleased to report that it works just fine with 3.5 and my analog Mojo using a 800/400 cable.  I use a Firewire or SATA 34 card external storage when I need it.  QT 7.6 and OS 10.5.6.

    Jump on in, the water is fine!

    I'm using the standard mojo with my MBP (old 17 inch). I'm not sure what version of MC is on it,but I have QT 7.6. Everything works fine except my 422 connection to the beta deck. Never could get it to work.

    I use Esata drives for my external drives--staying off firewire so as not to conflict with the Mojo.
