I have a Dell XPS 2720 with a thunderbolt port running Windows 8.1. Connected the Apple Thunderbolt to Firewire Adapter and Windows 8.1 immediately popped a message saying that it was installing drivers for IEEE Controller and I was elated with joy. Plugged in the cables end to end into my old DV camcorder and Windows immediately recognized the device as a VCR.
Switched on the camcorder, launched Movie Maker, and importing all the old movies from my tapes onto digital format. Simply Brilliant. Farewell to all the old tapes and the old camcorder.
I required 3 cables for this and purchased the following:

However, if you have an iMac, expect to spend some time securing the adaptor and/or connected FireWire cable to the stand by some means, to stop it falling out if brushed by a falling hair.
Apple's Thunderbolt accesories and Apple's iMacs are disfunctional together. The ports on an iMac are situated so that the weight of an Apple Thunderbolt/FireWire adpator, even without a FireWire cable plugged in, is problematic. At very least, the cable part of the adaptor needs to be longer and more flexible, so that the socket part can rest on a table surface, reducing the strain on the tiny Thunderbolt connector. Here, a functional design fundamental has been compromised in the name of eye-catching, price-leveraging aesthetics. It's increasingly part of the Apple way. As is the commitment to never admitting to any misjudgement or fault.
Anyhow, this is a super useful gadget and I really couldn't function without it.
