Re: Firewire?

Texas Instruments is not DELL.

The quite cheap adapters will blow up your dell frying everything or do nothing at all.

USB Signals are 5v and Firewire are 12v.  Plugging 12v into a 5v device will not end well.

The dell community forum is not for support of 3rd party software or hardware.

Other than the Pixela Device there are no USB to firewire Devices in existence.

That's brilliant news, thank you! - to be able to use my 3CCD Panny again will be a cause for celebration 🙂

Re: Firewire?

I haven't had any problems with Startech products: even the PCIe-x16-to-PCIe-x1 adapter worked as advertised, allowing the use of a PCEe-x16 video card in place of the much more expensive HIS 6450 PCIe-x1.

Re: Firewire?

Have ordered the product though - if it is unsatisfactory the Bay will always accept items back ~ that's the good thing about Customer Support - if you present a clear-cut case; and anyway it is in the vendor's intrerest to attract favourable ratings. Fingers and toes still firmly crossed though 😉
