Sonnet Technologies FireWire 800 to 400 Adapter
Avoid Hassles—Just Adapt!
Which cable should I get? What length? Why bother? Use your existing FireWire® 400 cables with this FireWire adapter from Sonnet to connect FireWire 400 devices to a FireWire 800 port, without going through the trouble of purchasing yet another cable. Just plug it in between a FireWire 800 port and a standard FireWire 400 cable's 6-pin male connector (the other end of the FW400 cable plugs into your FireWire device). It can't get any simpler.
Sonnet's FireWire 400-to-800 adapter makes it easy to connect your existing Firewire 400 peripherals to the latest computers with only FireWire 800 ports, such as the MacBook Pro (late 2008). The adapter features a 9-pin male connector that plugs into your FireWire 800 port. The other end of the adapter features a 6-pin female FireWire connector that any standard 6-pin male FireWire 400 cable can plug into. Fully IEEE 1394 compliant, Sonnet's 400-to-800 adapter allows you to avoid the hassles of new cables and computer upgrades.
