    is it pci, or pci express? they sound the same but are not, pci express is smaller than regular pci, and the two are not interchangable. you may want to take it back where yopu bought it and see if they can exchange it for something different

I checked out your computer on cnet.com, they say your computer uses pci express not regular pci. you may have the wrong card.

Most PCs have USB ports, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. You could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to a desktop PC, but not to a laptop.

What model 2 or 3 Port FireWire PCI card (low profile) Adapter?


I could not find any product that would fit a SFF case. The best suggestion i have for you is to get the riser card adapter that will fit standard PCI cards in the Dell Optiplex 7xx models. here is the link and partial discription.

The Dual Full Height Riser from Dell™ enables you to fit two PCI card in its slots. This product has been tested and validated on Dell systems and is supported by Dell Technical Support when used with a Dell.

DO I REALLY NEED A FIREWIRE CARD?


If your camera is Firewire, iLink,or IEEE 1394, then you need Firewire support or a Firewire card.

If your camera has a USB symbol, or says USB anywhere in the manual, you can use USB for the functions it allows.

There is no USB to Firewire or Firewire to USB without the use of an advanced device.

Hi there.
The best card for a desktop is a PCI Firewire card which goes inside the desktop base unit, i suggest you buy a brand new one as it will have the install drivers included with it.

Removeing panel from acer aspire to install firewire card


Generally you have two or more screws in the back of the computer, maybe a lever that you have to pull to release the side panel and it should come off, releaving the internals.

Case front firewire port to motherboard connection???


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...
