            I recently bought a thunderbolt to firewire adapter only to find ti was 800 only, so I would need an additional adapter to be able to digitize my old DV tapes into my new iMac. Worked well, no problems

                I needed this adapter to connect my camera to my Mac which didn't have the right port.. It works perfectly and now I can ingest HDV tape into FCP X.

                    I wanted this to connect a camcorder to my MacPro desktop, but the camera was not detected by the software (FCP). In the end I used a cable with these ports--which I should have done in the first place!

                      This adapter is very small (size of a peanut in shell) and straightforward. It fit nice and snug into the port in my hard drive- solid connection. No complaints.

                          Comments about GGI FireWire 800 9-pin Male to FireWire 400 4-pin Female Adapter:

                          I could not get this adapter to work at all. Apple is so far ahead of the curve with the whole firewire 800 thing that it is really frustrating trying to get things to function properly. I thought that this adapter would work but it did not.
                          go with an actual 4pin to 9pin cable.
