The IEEE 1394 standard is better known by Apple's "Firewire" nomenclature. Firewire 400 allows for both a small 4-pin and a larger 6-pin connector. The additional 2 pins on the 6-pin Firewire 400 connection are used to provide power to portable devices. Many self-powered devices such as digital video cameras use the smaller 4-pin connector.
- This allows you to use a 4-pin (iLink) M/M Firewire 400 cable to connect between your Firewire 400 equipped computer with 6-pin connector (such as older Macs and PCs with a firewire card) and your 4-pin equipped device (e.g. camera)
- Note that if you do not already have your cables you might just want to get one of our 4-pin to 6-pin M/M Firewire 400 cables
- This adapter provides a male 6-pin Firewire 400 connection on one side and a female 4-pin connection on the other end
- Also if you have a 6-pin M/M cable that you need to connect to a 4-pin device you need PID 360 instead
