I have a Bytecc PG-280, which has both USB 2 and FW, and can now be had 
for well under $40. It works with every computer we have here. Comes 
with a y-cable to grab power from a PC keyboard, but takes a fairly 
standard 5V input that you probably already have an adaptor for.

ncix.com have them, and if you want to shop around, <http://bbf.ca/> is 
your friend.
