Compatible Firewire Card for HP Envy Phoenix 800st?

I need to install a 1394 (Firewire) Card so I can download movies from my Canon HDV camcorder, but I'm not sure which ones are compatible with my Widonws 8.1 64 bit OS.  I'm not even sure my motherboard has a slot to accept a card.  Can anyoen help with this?

Thanks!

Your Phoenix desktop's motherboard has  two PCI Express x1 slots and a miniPCIe slot available for upgrades.

 

Choose from amongst a plethora of 1394 adapters that have the  PCI Express x1 slot interface and make sure that the card supports Windows 8.1.  Since Windows 8 is so new it is a bit difficult finding compatible products.

 

I did a Google search and found a few manufacturers that are providing driver updates.
