1.0 out of 5 stars Buy cheap-get nasty 30 July 2011
By Wilz
This has to be the worst adapter I have ever bought. White noise? Aliens trying to communicate? digitised digeridoo? I have no idea where the noise is coming from but it all stops when I unplug this monstrosity. I'm going cable next time. Don't pay less than 10 for this type of connection as you will be dissappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm for digital video transfer. 14 Mar 2011
If you've got a Firewire/iLink/IEEE1394 cable with a 6-pin connector when you need a 4-pin connector, then this item is just what you need. For me, it was a toss-up between buying another cable or just an adapter, so I could copy video between the camcorder and the laptop (The adapter works both ways). In the end, the adapter was chosen because it works on the existing cable and I didn't want to add to the growing mess of cables I've got. The adapter is pretty well made too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning - not the solution for the new Macbook Pro 6 Feb 2009
By David Fearon - Published on

Just a quick warning - this is not the adaptor for your new Macbook Pro firewire interface. I'm sure there is such an adaptor - I haven't found it yet. Maybe another kind reviewer will add a link here.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Adapter Also Works With Laptop-To-External HD! 27 Sep 2008
By D.L. Maher - Published on
I kept finding reviews that referred to i-Pods and digital cameras but I took my chances anyway, and thankfully, this little Startech IEEE 1394 4-6pin adapter did *exactly* what I wanted it to do.

I was able to connect a 6-pin firewire from my 500GB WD My Book external hard drive to my 4-pin Acer laptop port and have it function bilaterally with data transfer or anything else. I use this drive to store things and for backups and wanted to use the firewire port since all my USB ports were full.

Only one teensy qualification though, and that's allowing about 4" of space for how far the very stiff firewire cord sticks out (including the little Startech adapter itself) from the side of the laptop once it's plugged in.

I received it very quickly (as always from Amazon) and it was easy as pie to hook up - though it did take some fiddling to get it inserted into the laptop's port, but it worked splendidly!

Hope that helps someone who had the same problem with trying to hook up a new firewire WD HD to a too-small firewire port in your laptop computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Firewire adapter 26 Jun 2007
By J. Johnston - Published on
The two firewire adapters I ordered came quickly and in excellent condition. I needed them to allow me to connect my IPOD and my wife's IPOD to our new notebooks that only had 4 pin firewire ports as the standard IPOD firewire cable is 6 pin.

The adapters worked as described with no problems. The product was built well, has a solid feel, and fits snugly on both ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1394 Firewire 4-6 M/F Adapter 5 May 2008
By C. Osborne - Published on
Verified Purchase
Excellent product for converting from 6-pin connections found on most desktop computers and the 4-pin found on most laptop computers. I searched locally for a 4-pin to 4-pin cable to no avail. Most electronic stores I went into did not stock 4-pin/4-pin cables, only 4-pin/6-pin, so I ordered this unique adapter. I did think it was pricy for only one connector though. Originally, especially with the pic shown, it appears that you are getting two connectors which is what I anticipated. Wrong! There is only one adapter that comes with this item packaged. It works great though and can be used to connect your portable hard drive to a laptop especially if yours has the 4-pin connector like my Dell Inspirion 1526. Also, the 4-pin is essential for your connection of most Mini-DV Camcorders (4-pin) to your laptop computer which has 4-pin. Just insert cable into adapter, then the adapter into your laptop....and your in business ! The price isn't bad when you consider the alternative though...It Works !

We had a need for this adapter and it fit the bill. A little bulky but it worked in our configuration without any problems.
