FireWire has always been synonymous with speed, but the new 1394b specification caused a little confusion when they changed the cables from 6 pin to 9 pin. This conversion cable is limited to the old 6-pin speeds of 400Mbps, but it can save your bacons when dealing with old devices on new computers or vice-versa by allowing a stable connection at the lower speed.
This beefy 2m FireWire 1934 6P to 9P Cable will smooth the waters and clear the confusion by allowing FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 devices to link up (at FireWire 400 speeds) without complaint. Perfect for linking your DV devices when you only have miss-matched ports spare!
