How Does Sony Digital8 Connect to ATI Radeon 8500? : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread

Does the Sony Digital8 HandyCam connect to the ATI Radeon 8500? The Sony manual says I need a VMC-IL4415 i.LINK cable but the Radeon says it comes with an IEEE1394 port and cable. How do I connect these two?

I.Link, IEEE1394 and Firewire is the same thing. You could say that I.Link and Firewire are "marketing names", while IEEE1394 would refer to the "scientific name".

You will need a 4-to-6 pin cable in order to connect both ends. I am not sure, but I think that the Radeon 8500 (Retail package) comes with one of these.
