This may be a dumb question, but I have a FW800 external storage drive and only usb 2.0 ports on my laptop.

Would it be possible to use a laptop ExpressCard with a FW800 port plugged into a USB ExpressCard adapter?

If it does work, would I see any of the FW800 speeds or get capped by the USB 2.0 port?
