None of my drives that I use in the field work unless I'm connected to power. This is a major problem for me. When I'm in the field capturing footage and need to offload data to a drive, I have to use my old laptop.

    The adapter seems to work fine for devices that have their own power supply but i have had mixed results on bus powered interfaces The adapter seems to work fine for devices that have their own power supply but i have had mixed results on bus powered interfaces / drives. I've tested the MOTU Ultralite Hybrid mk3 and Iomega eGo. They don't work via bus power. An old FireLite drive works fine via bus power. If you have devices that demand more, you may be SOL. It is a decent solution but isn't a true FireWire gateway.

This adapter works just fine, no problems whatsoever. It is also very small, portable, and it looks a thousand times better than any other adapter on the market. I am very satisfied with this product.

If you want to connect the Thunderbolt end to a hard drive and the 800 FireWire to another computer - IT WILL NOT WORK! Not Designed for this.
