Questions about using USB 2 to 1394a adapters have been asked (& closed). I have not found newer notebook/ultrabook with the 1394a interface. But, they do have USB 3 which is faster than 1394a. Has anyone had any experience with using an adapter or cable between USB 3 and 1394a?

They will not work. Period. You will have to find a business class PC with an ExpressCard slot to add a FireWire adapter if you want to operate a FLEX-3000 or FLEX-5000 with a laptop.
