    Thanks, i bought a firewire 4-port pci card (revolutionary speed/ieee 1394a) but it does'nt fit in the slot.

  • gerartsmith May 11, 2009

    Thanks for that, it looks like i have a pci express, just hope the standard pci card will have the port i need, four pin. thanks again.

  • gerartsmith May 11, 2009

    So it was an express card that i bought?

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.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    The slot that it goes into should be white or cream in colour something similar to this >>>> this is where all PCI cards go exept PCI express cards.

    Good luck

    A standard PCI card will be perfect for you.

    If it doesn't fit into the PCI slot then chances are you bought a PCI Express card

SOURCE: 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.

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.
