Question about HP Compaq dc5000 PC Desktop
Hi guys, hope someone can help, i have recently bought a 4 slot firewire pci card to install on my computer to allow me to connect to my dv camcorder. The only problem is that my computer tower is a min unit (HP Compaq dc5000) and the slots are about 3 inches too small!! my card is actually larger that the tower itself!! any ideas as to how to get a smaller card or even a way to get it in easily without damaging it. can u get a firewire hub that will go into a usb slot? sorry if im being completely stupid but im not very good at these things! thanks!
