I bought the cable to connect my older Sony TRV27 mini DV video camera to transfer videos. It will not connect to Windows 7 Pro and I thought possibly is was my old firewire cable. It must not have been because my pc still will not recognize it unless it is a USB connection and that will not transfer video. Only jpegs. I need a mini DV tape player to use as a transfer device.
PROS: With Monoprice on the scene my constant problems are solved...finding cables that I need which range from audio, firewire, xlr, display port to a zillion adapters is a breeze and the quality is excellent. Their airtight cases are recommended as well.
Monoprice is my first stop for reasonably priced cables. This iLink cable met the same 'bang for the buck' criteria as the other cables I've purchased from Monoprice. That's why I keep coming back.
PROS: Obtained this iLink cable to interconnect a used DV camcorder I snagged to my desktop PC. Price was right and works great. Solid connection on both ends - a previous cable I had was fussy on the camcorder end.
