Hey FLEX-3000 and FLEX-5000 owners or soon-to-be owners: We recently had a trouble ticket where a new customer was "sold" a USB to Firewire Adapter. Sadly, this unit is NOT a Firewire device and damaged his FLEX-3000. We don't understand how these things can be sold but to date, we have not found a single USB to Firewire "adapter" that is anything more than snake-oil. Please be careful if you are considering this for your FLEX-Series radio. 73, Greg - K5GJ
