Hi all
I use a Asus (A7v333) M/B and it has a 1394 firewire port eight pin and I need a cable that connects to that and mounts an expansion slot. I've had a look at Maplins and PC world and I can't see any, loads of usb cables but no firewire serial cable any idea where to get one?

James.

Cant find any cables to go from your mother board to a socket on the PC but I have found a PCI card that would give you a socket at the rear of the computer.
See Micro Direct here.

Tried that it with a ALi pci card four usb and two firewire ports the usb ports worked o.k. but the firewire ports didn't like my ipod or sometimes did not see it. Just thought I didn't remove the drivers they load automatically with xp but I would prefer to get a cable.

Hi James

Just looked in the book for a P4C800-E and it has a nine pin 1394 connector on the m/b so probably came with a bracket and lead when new, so I may have got one.
