Jack, every video forum I’ve ever been on does not recommend a firewire to USB cable.
A guy I trust implicitly on the Creative Cow Vegas forum had this to say about that type of cable:
“A USB to Firewire cable cannot transfer any data. It is designed to charge firewire devices from a USB port. It is not a USB to Firewire converter (such a device does not exist), all it carries is electrical current.”
