Question about Gateway Desktop / Intel Pentium Processor / 6GB Memory / 1TB Hard Drive (SX280325E)

Open Question

What Firewire Port is compatible, with my Gateway SX2803-25e desktop?

I bought a Gateway SX2803-25, but it did not have a Firewire Port on it. I will be using it to record music, hopefully. All the Firewire Port that I find, don't say that they are compatible with this particular computer. HELP!

I think there is no SATA ports on its mother board. So SATA Hard disks cannot be used on this system.

Without any dobt you can use PATA (the one that we used to see everywhere) can be used. There is no question of compatibility; any size 80,or 160 GB or even more can be used.

You have a PCI Expres x 16 expansion slot so can can pretty much put any video card into it. But don't know how much space you have in the case , you might need low profile one. Or just how much money you want to spend. Here is an example of a 1GB low profile card that have HDMI out. EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 1024MB DDR2, PCI Express, DVI, VGA, HDMI, Low Profile
You can do a search on this card.

I'm going to assume you are trying to install a Firewire adapter card.

They make Firewire adapter cards that fit a long white PCI slot, on the motherboard,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3264905&CatId=511

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_local_bus

,and a Firewire adapter card that fits a PCI-Express x1 slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4624358&CatId=510

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#Form_factors

[NOTE* Color of connector does NOT matter. Blue, Black, Pink with Yellow polka dots............doesn't matter ]

Do I assume you have the PCI-Express x1 version, and there is no PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard?

You are also having problems opening the cover, that keeps the brackets of add-on expansion cards in place.

How about posting the Model Number of the Gateway Desktop PC?
This is found on the back of the desktop computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Post back in a Comment.

I will look to see how to open that cover, and what expansion slots you have on your motherboard. Then post back in a Comment.

Hi, I've always been able to connect my Canon MV4i MC camcorder to my computer (Windows XP) via the Firewire port. However, I've just bought a new computer (Windows 7) which has no Firewire port....


Why have you bought a 'new' computer with such an outdated operating system ? Have you an available expansion slot on the motherboard to install a Firewire card ?

I bought a new firewire to download video from my digital video camera but don't see where to plug the end that goes to the computer? I have an eMachine tower desktop


if there isn't one in back you probably do not have a firewire connection, however there are aftermarket cards that can be inserted into your machine that will allow you to have this port. They are called firewire PCI hubs.

1394 firewire port is not capturing any video


It may just need to be re installed to get it running again, go to my computer icon, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the harware list for IEE1394 firewire, if there are no '!' mark or 'red X' then right click on it and delete. Restart your pc and it will auto install again. Try capturing video again.
