There isn't one on the back panel. You must connect the USB/1394 bracket that's included with the board to an empty slot on the rear of the computer and hook up its connectors INSIDE the computer to the appropriate headers on the motherboard: the purple firewire connector would connect to the purple header (DUH!) on the RIGHT in the pic below, it's a DOUBLE firewire header and it's the only place this bracket will fit. The yellow USB connector would go to any open USB header on the board (guess what color...) Very simple, really.

Optionally if your computer case has a built-in firewire port on the FRONT panel, as most do nowadays, you can connect that to the appropriate header on the board using the already-installed cable that's connected to that front firewire port (connect this one to the purple header on the LEFT, it's just a SINGLE firewire port.)
However, this header's pins will NOT match up properly with almost all case's front-panel firewire connectors. You would most likely have to switch around 2 or 3 of the little wires that go into the connector so that it matches the motherboard's pin-out.

It's clearly labled in the manual for the board, and isn't really all that difficult to switch the wires around, but I would recommend just going with the first option and connect the included bracket to the back since it was designed to go with this board and requires no modification.

I recommend you, test the cable, the Firewire ports. test connection.
Plug the firewire into the camcorder BEFORE turning it on,
You must use a Firewire cable and FW ports (Firewire to Firewire) NOT USB port
Check the cable no bend.
1.- Try with other cable
2.- Try connect a different Firewire port on your PC (or connect to other PC)
3.- To test the FW port on your PC connecting other devices by example external hard drive
If the Hardrive work fine the problem is with your camcorder

Is important for people who share their knowledge, know your comments.

How do I connect this to my t.v.


Locate the Input panel on the rear of the TV and find the "Composite In" or "Video In" ports. These are small, circular ports that yellow, red or white. Locate the "Output" panel on the rear of the DVD player and the "Composite Out" or "Video Out" ports. Hook the cables up accordingly.

Can a GA7-VAX motherboard support a flat panel montior and firewire? Can I just add the two cards? What about broadband? Or do I need to upgrade the motherboard and CPU to allow functionality? Please...


Socket A motherboards aren't going to support any real impressive processors. I'd recommend upgrading anyway, but yes, you can just add a firewire card. I like Zonet, they are affordable reference boards. You can use a flat panel monitor either with a analog adapter, a monitor that actually has an analog input (Most acer displays currently available either have the option, or only support analog.)

I want to connect to my PowerBook G4. Have the unit. Where is my firewire port?


On your Behringer Sound Sytem, the firewire port is at the back, the firewire ports are actually labeled. On the PowerBook G4, it is usually located right next to the ethernet port and it has like the Y symbol above it.

FRONT AUDIO PORT


If you are familiar with electronic parts you can fix this with your own. Open you CPU casing and locate the wire connected to your front audio. At the end part of the wire from your front panel you need to plug the end part to your motherboard. You can see the audio port at the lower part to the motherboard. You can read there a label audio input so you plug at this port

Firewire cards


Why do you need to use another firewire card? The firewire port located on the right of the machine between the card reader and USB ports should work fine with most devices. I use mine frequently with a Sony Firewire camcorder and have never had a problem.
