FireWire cables allow the user to send data at high-bandwidth to and from digital devices. As an example, let’s say that you own a digital camcorder and you have it connected to your PC. FireWire was designed to be plug-and-play and your PC will auto detect the camcorder. Devices that are connected via FireWire are hot pluggable, meaning they can be disconnected or connected at any given time, even with the power on. FireWire is very similar to USB for their abilities to transfer data very quick, ease of use, hot-pluggable ability and power through cable. The main difference between FireWire and USB is that FireWire was developed for products with much more data; products like computers, camcorders, digital audio equipment and DVD players.
