    I have a camera with a DV input/output (firewire) with bent pins.
    Since the tradition firewire 4pin isn;t going to make the connect, I
    was thinking about cutting the cable open and connecting the 4pin
    manually (since the bent pin inside the camera is too short, if I cut
    open the firewire cable, I could get it to connect because the little
    steel piece that effectively let's the male end only go in a short
    distance would therefore be eliminated.)
    Is there anything I should worry about?
    Is there a chance of shorting anything out in my camera with this
    method?

    you can try it but the speed and reliability of the connection may not
    be good. if u try it then check every pin with meter for short
    circuit.
