  1. It wont work. What you need to do to get firewire 800 to work is buy startech thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adapter and buy a Apple thunderbolt 2 to firewire 800 1394B . Apple sell it for 29.99 and the startech on ebay between 50 bucks and hundred bucks. I got lucky an bought mine for 25 bucks. Connect the startech to the thunderbolt titan ridge card and the apple to the startech thunderbolt 2 port. In my case I went from the apple fire wire 800 port on my UAD apollo duo sound external sound card. My apollo duo also has thunderbolt 1 gen connector and my titan ridge will not pick it up. I read you need to update the TB card on the uad sound card to thunderbolt 2 or 3 generation. Not worth it. Windows 10 will pick up the end fire wire 800 device and create drivers in device manager. Hope this helps. Also you have to use non doch drivers. need to use the legacy drivers for the thunderbolt titan ridge. It works flawlessly and stable. Love It!!!!!! If you do it like this WIndows 10 wont have any problem picking up anything connected to FW 800 cable or apple FW 800 port.
