Question about Adesso ACCELL FIREWIRE GOLD 6PIN/6PIN 6FT (a005b-006h)

1 Answer

I wish to transfer movies from a camcorder to my computer. My camera has a 4 pin connection. The computer specs state the firewire port is 4 pin but has a port the same size as a 6 pin. Can I use your 4 pin/6pin gold cable?

First off thanks for choosing fixya.com
Since not all cables are made the same way it would be best to check the manual, or online documentation for your camera. The manufacturer probably makes a cable specifically for that camera. If the camera has a removable card such as SD or MMC you can purchase a generic card reader for your computer and simple transfer data using the card reader, In some cases this is cheaper due to the high cost of some USB/Firewire cables. Only use cables recommended by the manufacturer. This will not only ensure your warranty stays in tact but also makes sure you do not damage your camera or computer by using a wrong cable.

Hope this helps you.

Jei.

Problem with serial connection with AMD motherboard


Software that accesses serial ports usually allow you to specify WHICH port you want to connect via.

Your new board should have COM1 and possibly COM2... but perhaps your old setup was running from COM3?

Connect the Casio to COM1, and check the software you are using... set that to "look" at COM1 also. That should work!

How to use cross cable and straight cables in network


ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Meaning of Db and the use of Db9-male Cabl


The D is the shape of the connector when looked at it on it's side. The second letter (A,B,C,D,E) defines the amount of pins in the D connector. "DB9" is actually called DE by the standard and the E=9 pins. A=15, B=25, C=37, D=50, E=9. This standard was set in place by ITT Corp (Not the school) in 1952, and DE-9 connectors were used for tons of applications. (Machinery, Cars, etc). If you are only referring to the computer uses, the connector is widely known as RS-232 or a "Serial" port. These ports in computers were/are used for devices like early printers, scanners, networking hardware, or even as a method of connecting to the Internet at one point.

Rj45 male to db9 male cable for ups


If you have a BackUPS CS, you are probably either using it with the USB cable that is supplied or with the 940-0128A supplied by APC, which permits running the UPS in dumb mode. By building your own cable, you can now run the BackUPS CS models (and perhaps also the ES models) using smart signalling and have all the same information that is available as running it in USB mode.
The jack in the UPS may be easily use a 8 pin RJ45 connector. It is easy to construct the cable by cutting off one end of a standard RJ45-8 ethernet cable and wiring the other end (three wires) into a standard DB9F female serial port connector.
PC Signal PC pin UPS Pin UPS signal RxD 2 2 TxD TxD 3 8 RxD GND 5 7 Ground FG Shield 4 Frame Ground Though these UPSes are USB UPSes, APC supplies a serial cable (typically with a green DB9 F connector) that has 940-0128A stamped into one side of the plastic serial port connector.
Here is suggested scheme of original 940-0128A cable

Transfering data from one computer to another


I think there is no way to do that. You CAN do it, however, with a crossover cable. It looks the same as a regular cable, but it's not. With the crossover cable, just connect the two computers and give 'em two IP's in the same network. Then enable file sharing and it should work. Sorry, I can't go into much detail because I haven't done that in a looong time, but I think that's about it. Hope it helps.

Com port missing?


check to see if the computer even has a serial port, most today dont have them and use USB instead. if this is the case, contact the receiver company to see if the have a usb version of the connection cable and software and download it and the manual for it. check to see if it needs a special cable as well while on the site. it might not need a special cable but it disent hurt to make sure.
