  • ADVC300: Need extra firewire cable

    I just got myself a ADVC-300 converter. I wish to use it with two different computers. I want a 2nd firewire cable so I don't have to pull it out from the back of my computer every time I'm switching computer. But in the user manual for my ADVC-300 it says:

    BE SURE TO USE THE ATTACHED DV (FIREWIRE) CABLE
    If at all possible, please use the included DV (Firewire) cable. Use of other cables may cause a transmission error. In the worst case, the ADVC-300 or other connected equipment may be damaged internally due to faulty cable wiring.

    So what's so special with the included firewire cable?
    Why can't I just use a regular firewire cable?
    What kind of cable do I need to get a cable for my 2nd computer, and where can I buy it?

    Any good quality firewire cable should do. I have different firewire cables hanging off different computers at home which I regularly plug my ADVC300 into without problems.

      Ok. Thanks :-)

      But... how do I recognice a good quality cable from a low quality cable? Is a 4,5meter cable to $18 considered as a good quality cable?
