Description

Add 2 external and 1 internal FireWire400 port to any computer with a low profile PCI slot. This 3 Port PCI Low-Profile/Half-Height 1394a FireWire Adapter Card turns a motherboard PCI slot into two external IEEE 1394a FireWire slots (1x6-pin, 1x4-pin), and provides an internal (6-pin) FireWire port that can be used in place of the external 6-pin connector - a cost-effective solution that lets you connect any FireWire 400 device to your desktop computer.

Compatible with either Mac or PC computers, the 1394a FireWire card can be installed in small/micro form factor computer cases, and includes both standard and low profile/half-height brackets for easy installation.

A practical solution for connecting iPods, MP3 players, portable drives, digital camcorders and more to your desktop computer, the FireWire 400 adapter card supports hot-swappable connectivity, allowing you to plug, unplug, and swap your FireWire peripherals with ease.

A versatile FireWire video editing solution, the adapter card can be installed in a PCI 5V or PCI-x 3.3V slot.

Awsome Product

I bought this card so that I could network a server (place of card) at fast speeds using a 6 to 6 pin. Worked incredibly well with XP, doing stuff that Ethernet 100 would be poor at, e.g., transferring large files. I then upgraded the server to windows vista business. After that, it did not appear as a network adaptor again. I found out that Microsoft has disabled all 1394 net adaptors for windows vista, server 2008. If you want a card for camera equipment then this is the one! Other wise if your doing networking, use Ethernet 1000! Awesome card, shame about vista. Easy to setup, very small, fast and reliable and support from startech is amazing! !!!RECOMMENDED!!!

Vista 64 plug & play

I did have some concerns regarding this card and Vista64, however upon receipt I installed the card and it was immediately recognised by the OS and installed without any hassle whatsoever. I was up and running within 2 minutes, direct integration into Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 (I have not yet tried the included software) allowing me DV camera access and control. The low profile nature meant that I did not in any way obstruct the fan of my neighbouring graphics card, as all my other PCI slots were in use.

If a product does exactly what I want and causes me no hassle - then I can't rate it lower than 5/5!

Definitely recommended.

Having spoken to 8 Dell 'customer service' people who didn't know what a Dell Dimension 3100c was I contcted dabs who suggested a low profile firewire card might fit as i had already tried a full size one that didn't. Fitted perfectly and is now up and running. Great product and as usual great service.

XP good, Vista not so good

Well, had not problems instaling this card, ran at very high speeds through the network. I only got it because of the speed it would reach on the network, because i use a network PC for all of my film production storage. XP 32bit. However, i have installed Vista Business 32bit, and i have found that it does not work with networking on vista, though it shows up in device manager in 1394 tab. All drivers good, but yet no intention of working for networking. I have tryed just about everything apart from the boot :), i have all so emailed star tech with as much information as possible and i have yet to have a reply for the past few days, if some one comes accross this, please let me know.

Perfectly fine low profile card. However, it is not compatible with Windows 7, I purchased several for use in Dell Optiplex 755s and each machine blue screened once the card was installed.
