Firewire connections can be a little touchy. Since I use my MacBook to record audio - sometimes on location, hooked into an interface or Firewire mixing board - I'm often concerned that the cable will get jostled and disconnect in the middle of a critical operation.
Does anyone know of any method or device that will secure the cable to the Macbook's Firewire port more effectively?
Low-tech solutions would be welcome. (For example, I use a thick rubber band to do the trick on my portable hard drive, running the cable back through the rubber band and holding it against the top of the drive.) However, I wouldn't be averse to purchasing a small gadget or connector of some sort.
