    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firewire Card for video editors We needed a firewire card for our new editing computer and this one is a great choice. It offers 6 & 8 pin options for folks who still need a firewire application. This one worked great and we use it to capture video from our studio while recording and to input video from cameras and decks. Keep in mind that the PC you use should have a power supply that has the necessary cable to hook up the card as it will need to be powered.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great with my Tascam FW-1884 Using it in a Dell XPS running Win 7 Pro and I have to unplug and reinsert the FireWire cable every time I want to use my Tascam FW-1884 / Sonar setup. Never had this problem with the A version of the TI chip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card - low profile option nice Using this PreSonus StudioLive mixer in a Gateway with a small form factor and it was nice to find a firewire card with a low profile bracket (included, had to swap it out once I got the card, but that was easy with a small screwdriver).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When It All Comes Together What a very, very pleasant surprise to see my JVC GR D230AA digital video camera download onto my Windows 10 HP Tower PC. It has taken me years to find a way to do this. The reviews on this web site which helped me choose B&H are one hundred percent correct. There was just one hitch. I thought the 800 ports would take my cable, naively believing their smaller size to be the same as the Fire Wire port on my ACER 5920 laptop. They were not. However, I have two camera to 400 port cables and that was good enough for me. The process began with ordering from B&H Photo and Video. Then I download the software from the original CD which came with the camera, which had a Win 98 driver folder. Next I downloaded Ulead VideoStudio 11 SE. While doing do Windows intelligently found two more files, most likely drivers, and included them. When the expansion card arrived I had to travel into town to have a technician change the circuit board to fit the larger PC frame. Back home I managed to fit the card into the appropriate slot. Windows 10 recognized it. Finally, I attached the cable between the JVC and the 400 (1394a) port, opened up Ulead, did a DV scan, saw vision, then captured it. Imported into a modern video editor it was perfect. Honestly, StarTech and B&H have brought the 'no longer supported' past into the present You can do the same and it is so inexpensive. What more can I say? It's a beautiful day when things come together. Thank you, B&H Photo and Video. The attached image is from my first download. The sound came through loud and clear.
