    Default Firewire to USB

    I found a Firewire to USB adapter ($2 with shipping); doesn't make any sense to me, anyone know what is going on?

    This guy claims to have wired up a Firewire iSight to USB

    Problem half solved

    While the external iSight is similar to the built-in iSight, the built-in iSight uses an internal USB 2.0 interface and not the FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394a) interface used by the external iSight camera.



    Still don't know what the adapters are for
