Question about ASUS P4S533-VM (P4S533-VM/L) Motherboard

Case front firewire port to motherboard connection???

My pc case has a firewire port on the front which would be handy but my XFX motherboard has no apparent connection. The cable coming from the firewire port on the front of the case terminates with a flat, or rectangular plug marked 1394 and has a top row of 5 holes with just 4 wires, and a bottom row with 4 holes and just 3 wires. This would actually fit the usb connection pins on the motherboard but info I have indicates that they are wired quite different. Is there a PCI card available, or adapter of some sort? Thanks

    Some PCI cards do have the internal firewire header, but it is the same as on the exterior and will not accept the connector I described. I am now looking for an adapter of some sort. Thanks for trying, but your response is the same as I found all over the web and this seems to be an issue for many builders.

Yeh dont plug it into a USB header...

yes if you buy a PCI firewire card they will have 1 or 2 headers on the card so you can fit your front Firewire port to it...
[Belkin cards 99% of the time have headers on the card]

Let me know...

    okay...


    Is it a 5x2 block [including the 1 hole that is filled in]? 


    if you look at it from a side you'll see on the 'plug' there are parts of the gold connectors showing...
    there is black plastic clips that hold that connector into that hole of the 'plug'
    you can pull the cables out of the block and rewire it by pulling the black clips back slightly and pulling the cable out...



    Let me know...

I need to connect a Sony trv950 camcorder to Adobe cs4, it only accepts firewire to capture video. and the emachine only has usb ports


Hello,
You can buy a PCI card for firewire and put it inside your PC case in an empty PCI slot. They are pretty cheap. In Canada / USA you can get them for about $30 from your local computer store, best buy etc..
Here is a link to best buy USA: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dynex%26%23153%3B+-+3-Port+FireWire/IEEE+1394+PCI+Card/6307392.p?id=1074787927900&skuId=6307392&st=firewire%20pci&cp=1&lp=1

Return the motherboard to the place where you bought it, and have them explain the differences that you have observed.

Are there any wires running from the FireWire port on the front of your computer's case to any connector on your motherboard?

Loose firewire on the front, right side of the tower.


The whole front bezel can usually be removed from the desktop case by removing the side panel and carefully releasing the snap-in tabs around the outer edge of the inside of the front case. (If that makes any sense at all.) You can reach some with fintertips, maybe us the flat of a screwdriver to carefully get at others, and the front bezel will swing away from the hard case.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Location firewire input port


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.

Usb shortage


There's a photo of your motherboard here: http://www.techspot.com/reviews/hardware/abit_vt6x4/ You see the part labeled "USB header for two extra USB channels." That is where you'd connect any additional USB ports. When you say you have two ports on the front of the stack, I assume you mean on the front of your computer case? Front mounted USB are handy, and just about standard on most cases. Just connect the cable from them to that connector and you should be ready to go. If you're not sure which way to connect it, just try one - you won't break anything by connecting it backwards (you'll just have to switch it to get them to work).
