    Do all computers have a 6 pin firewire port?

    I'm using this PCI card

    I assume its a 6pin my camcorder has a 4 pin so i guess i need to buy a 4 pin to 6 pin cable to connect the two.

    That's the traditional way of connecting a computer to a DV device (i.e., 6-pin to 4-pin).

    BTW I have that card, it was the easiest card I've ever had to install.

    Yeah i know after i got the card installed when i started up my computer i didn't even get asked to install any drivers i figured i would .


    I still like USB 2.0 better than firewire all the connectors are the same i think so i don't have to buy a bunch of different cables.
