    headstrong, when you say take the cover off the pc, do you mean the front or the back...and would installing the fire-wire pci card allow me to download videos?

  • mlsadler Jan 18, 2008

    how do you take the computer cover off a dell dimension 3000, the screws don't look like they fit any of the tools I have. Then there's one side of the computer that looks like it's attached by no screws but I don't know how to get it off! Sorry I'm so dumb. Please help!

Take a look at this photo, the white slots are the PCI slots
take the cover off the PC and look inside, this is where you would install the fire-wire PCI card

thanks for rating

    the side panels come off, this will give you access to the motherboard, here you can install the PCI card

    if your camera has a firewire connection you will be able to download video to the PC

Install NX1101


I hope you know what you have bought and what you have (computer) are compatible. since you did not mention what computer you are trying to install this into, I will provide generic instructions.

1. remove all cables from rear of computer. remove cover from computer. Side panel or top cover, sometimes all covers have to be removed on some cases.
2. using a #1 philips screw driver or #5 torx driver remove the small screw from one of the case slots covers near an empty PCI connector on the motherboard. You find those near the place you plug in your video cable. Don't loose the screw.
3. align the new PCI card with the PCI slot and gently push straight down until the card is seated, you have to also align the metal alignment frame with the empty slot you removed from step 2. (if you removed the wrong blank, no problem, just remove the next one over and put that one where you removed the earlier one.) Now put in the screw that you saved from step 2. tighten.
4. Replace cover. Reconnect cables. Power back up.

Have just bought new computor which doesnt have a dv opening so i cannot connect my sharp camcoder to computor, is there an adapter for this dv cable?


Many computers come without a dv connection though of late quite a number are catching up. What you need is to buy a firewire 1394 card, called the I-link card by Sony. This is the card that you put in your computer on one of the PCI slots. The firewire card usually comes with the cable and software for it so you don't have to worry about that. If you are not able to put the firewire card yourself then get someone who is computer literate to do it for you. Hope this helps you.

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

I want a graphics card for 81845GVM-RZ motherboard......please help me


Hi,
Your motherboard is old one.
For adding the new graphics card you need to have the PCI Express x16 slot in motherboard
Your motherboard is not having this slot.
Buy a new motherboard.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to install a graphics card since I updated to windows 7 (which won't allow me to use some programs because it requires a video card). Right now it has a standard VGA graphics adapter but I wanted to...


that's easy, but you never said what "some programs" are
(infinite possibles and high end games worse)
or CAD/CAM or other 3D engineering and rendering progs.?
or top flight, Video Editing? omg.
but if you open said PC and see that mother board
you will see slots, the largest slot is the one
called PCI-e (express)
this PC came with ONBOARD
  • integrated
  • Graphics Processor Intel Extreme Graphics shared video memory (UMA)
the PC is a very old and low performance model.
this old PC has no express slots.
most cards sold now do not use PCI now, only PCI-E
express x16
your computer so old , it does not have AGP slot.
so is a relic.
but there are a few remaining companies that still make them.
even used PCI only VGA cards are hard to find, '
those slots are very slow as is all things there.
and will not ever run fast like a modern MOBO would do !
here is one, but I cant promise your unstated Prog will like it.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACUE5MM1048


No AGP , NO PCI-Express slots at all. just old PCI (x 3)
It runs 32 times slower that slot than any modern PC (express)
1220-q3ynongdx4nnghasmode251e-1-0.jpg do not expect something this old to run modern bloated apps well.
it wont. nor will it ever.

We are missing our driver and need to download a driver for GR-D750U camcorder


hello btb..... Don't use USB to transfer video from a miniDV tape based machine. Use Firewire. Cheap and easy to install if your computer has an available PCI slot or PCMCIA slot (laptop).

USB will not be successful. Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a Samsung DV-D381 MINI Camcorder. What


OK there are NO cables as such for that PC, as of normal, to get Video into this machine you will have to use either, a USB TV/Video card, and use the AV inputs. OR put a Video TV/Video Capture card into a PCI slot, and again use the AV inputs to connect via. The you will have to use the AV leads Yellow, Red & White, OR the SVHS port if available. You will also need software to record the video stream, If you camera has FireWire then you could install a FireWire Card into a PCI slot and hook you via that, you will still have to use software though. Sometimes the camera, has proprietary software to edit and work with the Video from the camera, usually via FireWire. To get said software go to the manufacturers web site, and download a copy.

I have a JVC mini DV and want to down load to my computer but don"t know how its a


First of all, you need three things to do this.

1. A fire wire port (or card which has the port and is installed to a pci slot in your computer).
2. A firewire cable which connects your camcorder to your computer.
3. Software or application for "capturing video" <--(not download video). Video editing software all consist of this application and is what you really want to acquire since it also allows you to edit you video.


Windows movie maker is a free download you can get it here.

http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=windows+movie+maker

This page allows you different options depending on your type of operating system. Be sure to choose the correct download to avoid conflicts. ie: windows xp, windows vista, and there is even a windows live download.

Once you download and install the software, plug in your device using your firewire cable and port, select "capture video using windows movie maker", then follow the directions or use help. Windows movei maker also has decent editing options considering it is free software.

Good Luck!
