Scam Alert – USB to FireWire Adapter

Seriously do not buy these.

While shopping on Amazon I came across a product that I have told people in the past does not exist. So I purchased two of them and decided to cut them open for science.

Surprise! They’re a scam. There is no converter for USB to FireWire because they are incompatible standards. What I found inside these adapters was nothing but some adhesive and mismatched wires. If you do plug these in you will definitely damage equipment.
