    Purchased a new iMac. Discovered it has Firewire 800. Our other MacBookPros have 400. When I discovered this converter from 400 to 800, it fit our need perfectly.

    The B&H information was just enough to determine it was the likely the correct component. Would have been better with a close-up of each connector end of the unit.

    I bough this to adapt the Firewire cable from my Sony HVR-Z1U to my new iMac. The cable works perfectly on my old Mac Book Pro with the 400 port. The Camera is not recognized on either the new iMac or the old Mac Book Pro using this adaptor to access the 800 port!

      Comments about Newer Technology FireWire 800-400 Adapter:

      This is an inexpensive adapter that did exactly what I needed it to do which was get video from my old DV camcorder onto my iMac. The iMac had the 800 port but I only had a 400 wire. This adapter did the trick and I was able to move some family home movies onto my computer and then a DVD. It also arrived quickly and it was inexpensive.

        Comments about Newer Technology FireWire 800-400 Adapter:

        I'm soooooo happy I bought this. I have some older Firewire 400 drives that I still wanted to use with my MacBook Pro which only has a plug for Firewire 800. I used to have an adpater but couldn't find it so I bought this at a good price. This one worked great. It even worked to connect the connect the drive to another Voyager external drive holder that has both Firewire 400 and 800 plugs so I was able to piggyback and see several drives at once. I was using this to edit video on Final Cut Pro and this adapter worked fast enough for that to happen. I would definitely buy this again or maybe a 2nd one if I lose the first.

              B&H covers every aspect of your computer, camera, electronics as well as accessories for music instruments. Last year I purchased a road case for a keyboard I use when I travel and perform. I called ahead of time and it was there waiting for me. Most recently I needed a FireWire adapter in order to connect an older storage drive to my new Mac Mini. They have a great staff on the floor, and within just a few short minutes I had one of their tech guys quickly looking up the adapter I needed, and then he walked me over to where the FireWire Adapter was located. Super friendly staff. I was in and out of there in 15 minutes! You will NOT get that kind of service anywhere else!

              I needed this to log footage from an older video camera I had, because the new MacBooks don't have any FireWire 400 or 800 ports. It works fine.

              I needed this when I went to a 2012 Mac Pro, which only has Firewire 800, from my old 2008 Mac Pro, which still had Firewire 400.

              I plugged it in, and plugged in my Firewire 400 device, and everything just worked.

              The only thing is that it's almost all plastic, which I fear would crack if things were being plugged or unplugged frequently.

              Small great I need to transfer my old sony video camera content into external drive I think this would be great for the transfer. I'll use my 3 year old MacBook Pro that still has the FireWire 800 for this mission before I upgrade to a newer machine that has nothing but thunderbolt and USB 3.

                                  Very handy. Apple keeps moving forward, the rest of us like to get the full use out of our gear before upgrading to something that might not work yet. This adapter lets me keep all my firewire 400 camera able to xfer to final cut on the new macs. Love it. I got two. Works great.
