    Hi
    Can anyone help me, I need to know what the various cable colours mean that make up a firewire cable.

    For example the cable I have has Black, Green, Blue, Orange, Red & White. Which colour represents TPA+, TPA-, Power etc

    Regards
    John

    A picture should describe it better than I can in words, so have a look Here for the pinout of a firewire cable.

    Hi Mark
    Thanks for the link, unfoturnately it doesn't show me the lead colours which I need as I have a cable which is proprietary at one end (goes to a PC case) and the pin out isn't described. at the other end it is 6 single pins which attach to my motherboard which does have the various descriptors but no colours. so I want to make sure that pin 1 goes to pin 1 etc and I would have thought that the coluors are standard?

    cheers
    John
