Standard firewire cables are limited to 4.5 meters (about 15 feet). I have read that there are longer - up to 10 meters - firewire cables using 24AWG for the signal wires instead of the usual 28AWG.
Does any one know who might manufacture these longer cables?
As an alternative are low cost converters available which translate from firewire to CAT5 and vice versa?
Thanks in advance for any help.
