Question: Will the IOGear GUH420 allow me to connect my mini-DV video camera with Firewire output to my laptop PC with USB 2.0 ports?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, this is a "pass-through" type hub that does not provide any conversion. It would need to attach to your laptop via both FireWire and USB 2.0 to function.
