    6-pin FireWire-400 to 9-pin FireWire-800 Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't upgrade your gear unnecessarily I record music at home using an RME Fireface 400 audio interface. I've never had any issues or problems with it in over five years, and it's still one of the best units out there. There's absolutely no reason to replace or upgrade it.However, I just switched to Mac from PC, and of course the Mac only has USB and Thunderbolt ports. I bought this and a Firewire 800-to-Thunderbolt adapter, and my interface will likely continue to serve me for many more years.If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?There's really not much to say about the adapter just works. Simple and inexpensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful in dealing with Thunderbolt 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does What It's Supposed To 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I used this product in conjunction with another adapter so that I can keep my second gen iPod connected to my iTunes library on my new Mac Pro which sports a bunch of thunderbolt ports and no firewire. My old iPod cable goes into this, and then this product goes into a firewire to thunderbolt connector. This item makes my firewire talk to the firewire of the thunderbolt adapter. Clear as mud? Anyway, it works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compatibility Lifesaver 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed,No one else had it 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid. 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.
