hi, I see they come in 4 and 6 pin, my laptop has the small socket, so i guess that must be 4 pin...the bit of gear i want to buy has a firewire lead 6pin to 6pin..if i got a lead, 4 pin to 6 pin...would anything work?..hope that makes sense........thanks

4 pins are data lines and other extra 2 pins are power lines. laptop one is normally 4 pin, i.e. you cannot get power out from it.

thanks, so from that, if the thing is self powered, it will all be ok..........
