Hi Guys

New to this world and would appreciate a little help - have been lucky enough to have aquired an XF 8 for Christmas and have ordered the XF/XS FireWire Interface in order to link to my Dell Laptop through Firewire.

I note that the cable required is the IEEE1394 so whilst waiting for the Interface to arrive I have been on e-bay to purchase a cable.
To my confusion I find I can order a 4 pin - 6 pin - 9 pin version of this cable in various combinations.
Could anyone please tell me the pin for the new XF Interface
as I am sure I will be able to see the one on the laptop and therfore be able to purchase my cable.

Many thanks
Russ

On the Motif side, you would need a 6-conductor connector. Keep your cable length shorter than 4.5 meter.

Hi!
The actual FW16E interface uses a 6-pin connector (according to the manual. I do not have an FW16E myself). So depending on what the other end has (your Dell laptop), then you’ll need to order the appropriate cable. Here is a site (from Belkin) that I found which describes the various available cables, with a picture of the various connectors:

All you need to do is take a look at your Dell connector.

Hope this helps.
