My Dell PC has a IEEE 1394 FireWire port (the type of FireWire that most DV Cameras use). I actually have a Maxtor 1TB external hardrive with a USB and two FireWire 400 slots. This Firewire, however, is a larger connection interface that does not fit the small port on my computer.
I’ve looked around for a Firewire 6-pin to 4-pin converter. Will the interface be the same as USB when I connect the hardrive using a converter cable?
