Firewire (IEEE 1394) slot for Pavilion Slimeline 400PC Series

Pavilion Slimline 400PC Series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to get a firewire (IEEE 1394) card for my Pavilion Slimline 400PC Series, to convert my mini DV from my Sony DCR-TRV950. First of all, it seems that the desktop has no firewire slot, isn't it?

If this is the case, what kind of plugin card should I buy?

Hi,

 

No, it does not have this old technology. But it has few spare slots:

 

Expansion Slots
  • One PCI Express x16 (Gen2.0)

  • Three PCI Express x1 (Gen2.0)

  • One PCI Express x1 Mini Card

You can use one spare PCI Express to install a firewire card

Please note, your machine is a slimeline machine, you need a low profile card otherwise it won't fit physically

 

Regards.
