        Comments about Pearstone 6-pin FireWire-400 to 9-pin FireWire-800 Adapter:

        This adapter performed perfectly, allowing me to connect a mini-DV camcorder with only a Firewire 400 out to a MacBookPro equipped with only a Firewire 800 in. I truly didn't expect to find such an adapter available. But here it is, folks, and it provides a rock solid connection. And you can't beat the price.

                    I needed this adapter to use an older camera for an analog to digital conversion, when i brought my IEEE to 6pin FireWire-400 cable to several stores they had nothing to help me with my cord adapting dilemma, B&H had this adapter which I also plugged into my 9pin FW to Thunderbolt adapter and it all worked perfectly together!

                              I have a 2003 iPod that connects via FireWire 400. When I replaced my computer with a new Mini (because its the only Mac that still has FireWire AND allows the user to at least do basic upgrades) I purchased this little dongle in hopes that my trusty old iPod would still work.Happily, the iPod works just fine and even charges (something I feared wouldn't work as I've seen other adapters like this fail to supply power). So I'm quite pleased with this little sub $[$]dongle.

                                Comments about Pearstone 6-pin FireWire-400 to 9-pin FireWire-800 Adapter:

                                With the advent of the questionably necessary Thunderbolt by Apple (and lack of Firewire connectivity on my new MacBook Pro Retina), I'm needing the work out how to connect my HVX200 for P2 file transfer. There are Thunderbolt/FW800 connectors but my camera cable has a 6 pin FW400 end. So this little gadget to string something together that works. B&H, as usual, made finding it easy. Went to exactly what I needed. It seems to solve the problem well of using existing equipment with the newer laptop.

                                    I was unable to connect my old but very excellent camcorder to my new iMac via FireWire. Ordered up the Pearstone 5 to 9 pin (400 to 800) adapter and got back on track, sending my band's video to the web with ease. It was an inexpensive but well designed adaptation.
