Looking to transfer some video from camcorder to my iMac.
The camcorder is pretty old, working with a JVC GR-D395U miniDV.
I *think* I've found some cables but I'm not sure on the pin number.
Do I need a 9/4 pin cable?

The camera has a 4 pin port. Your computer would likely have a 6 pin or 4 pin port for FW400, or a 9 pin port for FW800. The smaller 4 pin ports are more common for laptops.
So use a 6/4, 4/4 or 9/4 pin cable, depending on your computer port.

...and do make sure you have connected the camcorder to power, as well.
good store on line to buy all your cables from
majority of camcorders are 4 pin(my Canon camera) and the one on my Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H Motherboard is 6 Pin
