I have a Mobile Studio with the Firewire 400 ports. I just upgraded to a new MAC with the Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) ports. What is the solution to connect this computer to the Studio?

Check the chipset and operating system on that new mac. If it's past 10.14.6 Mojave or has an M1 chipset it won't function.

Otherwise you should just need some adapters.
