Mini DV tapes transfer through thunderbolt dock????
Hi, I’m trying to transfer a bunch of mini dv tapes that were recorded on a DVX100a a dozen years ago. The problem is I own a 2021 macbook pro and the dongle to connect a Firewire 800 to a thunderbolt 2 (which then connects to thunderbolt 3 on my computer) has been discontinued. I can’t find it anywhere online new or used (all the posts them for sale are very old and the sellers don’t respond to my requests.) So, I’m seeing a few older thunderbolt docks for sale on these used sites, particularly ones that have firewire 800 ports and thunderbolt ports and I’m wondering if that would work for a transfer. It would seem that it would, but I don’t want to buy an old dock and have it not work. Anyone have thoughts? Or other thoughts about where to purchase the firewire–thunderbolt dongle or other workarounds?
An example of the dock I’m looking at: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/986913092402482/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A80dc67e9-09d3-497c-8dfd-afb29ebda4b3
