9-pin/ 6-pin BILINGUAL FireWire® 800 - FireWire 400 Cable, 6FT, Black

The IEEE 1394b serial interface, better known as FireWire® 800, doubles the speed of the older FireWire 400. It uses a newer 9-pin "beta" connector, which is incompatible with either of the older connectors.

This cable features a male 6-pin "alpha" connector on one end and a male 9-pin "beta" connector on the other end, allowing you to connect FireWire 400 devices to FireWire 800 devices.

Great for Mac target disk mode!

Pros: Worked great connecting a Mini Core 2 Duo 2.0 with a Mini Core Duo 1.6 in target mode. The newer one has only Firewire 800 the older only Firewire 400. Also may use it in storage connections after reading that Firewire 400 consistently outperforms USB 2.0 in real life.

Cons: None.

Pros: Functions exactly as advertised

Cons: None that I can see

I needed something to connect my external HD on Firewire 400 to my iMac on Thunderbolt. After having purchased a Firewire to Thunderbolt converter, this is exactly what I needed. Good quality, delivered quickly and can't beat the price.

Pros: Effective, good length

Cons: None

This bilingual cable worked exactly as it is described to. I had no trouble hooking up my components and the transfer of information via this cable went smoothly and quickly with no issues. I used it with an Apple thunderbolt adapter on the nine pin end and did not encounter any problems. The length of the cable is goodnot too long and not too short.
