Which one of these cables is the one I have to buy to connect a FireWire 400 device I have to the FireWire 800 port of the new 27" iMac?

Firewire 800 is always the 9-pin, so it depends which Firewire 400 is on your device. What device are you looking to connect? –  viking Jun 16 '11 at 18:26
    
my device uses one of these regular firewire connectors, the one that is a rectangle with one curved side... I think it is a regular 6 pin –  Mike Jun 16 '11 at 18:55

The first cable will work for you. The Firewire 400 with the curved side is 6-pin.

Numbers 1, 4, 5, 7 & 8 should all work. Of course the adapters will assume that you have a FW400 cable already.
