Thunderbolt and MAC Pro
Jan 13, 2013

Hi All,

i hope I haven't just wasted a while heap of cash...

i purchased a Western Digital Thunderbolt Duo expecting it to plug straight in via a thunderbolt cable to my 2012 Mac Pro.  Oce I got home I found plenty of FireWire sockets front and back but only a thunderbolt port vacant on the display card.  I therefore  now have a very expensive paperweight.

is there anybwaybti make this drive work with a Mac Pro?  Is there a thunderbolt card you can add?   Can I use one if the FireWire to thunderbolt or Thunderbolt to gigabit Ethernet converter cables?

Needless to say I'm a little surprised at this, although perhaps it is my own fault....

any advice appreciated.

regards
