Connector clearance issues. Take your device to the store
The camcorder adapter has a very large soft plastic covering that will prevent it from being inserted into any connector that is r The camcorder adapter has a very large soft plastic covering that will prevent it from being inserted into any connector that is recessed even slightly on a camcorder.

At least.. buy this "In Store" and take your camcorder with you. …

It works, poor design
Used this cable/adapter to go from my 4-pin Panasonic MiniDV video camcorder to the 9-pin Firewire 800 port of a Mid 2010 MacBookP Used this cable/adapter to go from my 4-pin Panasonic MiniDV video camcorder to the 9-pin Firewire 800 port of a Mid 2010 MacBookPro.
