I'm trying to use an a mini dv camcorder, 4 pin (1394) with my Mac os x (only has thunderbolt port). What cable do I need?
- Asked by Amber G from Franklin
Nearly every Mac to date has some sort of FireWire port on it (the MacBook Air is the only exception Nearly every Mac to date has some sort of FireWire port on it (the MacBook Air is the only exception), so you should be able to find either a FireWire 600 or 800 port on your Mac. If you happen to have a MacBook Air, there is a Thunderbolt to FireWire 800 adapter (you can get one from the Apple Store or the website). Your camcorder most likely has a FireWire 400 port, so you'll need a cable that has a 4-pin connector on one end and 800 on the other. You can find one on the Store.
Good luck! …

is this the correct firewire cable to connect a vintage iMac to a new iMac?
- Asked by Lisa H

I have a new iMac arriving in a couple of days and I'll be upgrading from a 10 year old iMac. My research prior to buying showed me that the new Macs don't have Firewire they only have thunderbolt. I bought the thunderbolt to firewire adaptor but it just arrived and the firewire end is not compatible since the firewire on the Mac is 10 years old. So it appears to me that you and I both will need this firewire adaptor and will then need to plug it into a thunderbolt adaptor which plugs into the new Mac. Lots of luck. …
