Firewire PCs ?? Need Firewire for Canon Camcorder

by Paul23co / April 10, 2013 1:54 AM PDT

My new computer (Dell XPS 8300) has no place for my Firewire card from my last PC. What gives ? Is there a way to use USB. My Canon ZR 950 only uses Firewire to transfer video.

Firewire Kit

Aren't you lucky, Dell provide a "DELL PCI Card IEEE 1394 Firewire (Kit)" for the princely sum of £ 20.39.

More info
Usually Ships In 24-48 Hours
Manufacturer Part 500-10056
Dell Part 500-10056

You will need to sacrifice one of the PCI slots for this kit - as (many others have found) there is no other way!!!!!
