Use your existing FireWire 400 cables with this FireWire adapter from Sonnet to connect FireWire 400 devices to a FireWire 800 port, without going through the trouble of purchasing yet another cable. Just plug it in between a FireWire 800 port and a standard FireWire 400 cable's 6-pin male connector (the other end of the FW400 cable plugs into your FireWire device). It can't get any simpler.

I have two scanners (both at least 5 years old) with Firewire 400 cables that plug into ports in the back of the Apple Display that I bought with my 2008-era Mac Pro. The new Mac Mini has a single Firewire 800 port and without an adapter like this, I could only connect 2 of the 3 cables from the monitor (USB, and DVI using the supplied DVI-to-MiniDVI converter that came with the computer), to the Mini. I'm using the 400-to-800 converter to connect the 3rd cable (Firewire 400) from my 2008 Apple Display, which in turn lets me continue to use the pair of Firewire 400 ports on the back of the monitor, for the two scanners.

At first, I didn't think this converter was working because I couldn't detect either scanner from the Print & Scan option of the Mac's 'System Preferences' screen. (Both scanners are too old to have updated drivers for recent versions of OSX including 10.8; I imagine that's why the system doesn't see them.) However, after downloading Vuescan, which... Read more
This great Sonnet adapter is the second one in a month that I bought to allow my FireWire 400 devices to live on. I may even buy a third. My new iMac is USB 3 and Thunderbolt capable only. With this FW 400 to FW 800 device coupled to an Apple FW 800 to Thunderbolt adapter, I'm good to go, both with a years-old Epson flatbed scanner, and a FW 400 Canon video camera, from which I can now upload movies into OS X Sierra's iMovie 10. Very satisfied.
A Mac user for several years I've collected several FireWire devices and cables. Through those years the ports have changed: 400 was prevalent, now 800 is all that's left. Adapters like this one are perfect for repurposing the connectors. Originally gotten for an older iPod which still supports FireWire. Battery shot, I couldn't add any extra media to it, needed FireWire to power it while syncing. My current Mac only has 800 connectors which made my cable useless. This adapter was perfect. I also find it useful with 400-to-400 cables for external drives when using with newer connectors.

Without such an adapter, legacy devices and cables would be inaccessible, unusable. While it only permits 400 Mb/s throughput, it at least allows connection. Tight fit in ports, it's a great solution at a better price than on most sites.
