The 6-Pin FireWire-400 to 9-Pin FireWire-800 Adapter from Sonnet allows you to plug a 6-Pin FireWire-400 device into a 9-Pin FireWire-800 port. This is a great option for anyone who would like to connect a FireWire-400 device to an available FireWire-800 port on their computer. Sonnet's FireWire 400-to-800 adapter features a 9-pin male connector that plugs into your computer's FireWire 800 port. The other end of the adapter features a 6-pin female FireWire connector that any standard 6-pin male FireWire 400 cable can plug into. Fully IEEE 1394 compliant, this adapter allows you to avoid the hassles of new cables and computer upgrades.

I needed to connect a Leaf Digital Back to a new Mac, and a new firewire cable was going to cost $125. This adapter allows me to use my existing 6pin to 6pin cable.
Worked to connect old cord and old Sony camcorder perfectly.
