Fire Wire (A K A IEEE 1394) Cable

Fire Wire (A K A IEEE 1394) Cable

Connecting video cameras and external hard drives to a computer.

An Apple-invented standard that’s on the outs. FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 have different connectors (even FireWire 400 has two kinds of plugs — 4-pin and 6-pin). There are “bilingual” cables that can connect one kind of device to another. Apple has dropped FireWire on its entry-level laptops and has gone with USB 2.0 instead.
