A lot of discussion about this online - plenty of stuff pops up in google. Some people say its not possible, others say there is a cable but it only works for digital camcorders...

Apparently you could buy a different external enclosure for the 3.5" hdd thats inside that F. A. Porsche box, that has usb and firewire, like this:

but its not something I know much about.

Someone else will no doubt shed some more light on this / apple support forums might be a shout.
