Are you sure its your mobo? how have you come to this conclusion? I don't even know what you mean by a bus plug and have been building computers for 6 years.

I am a "Wizard Techie" the ultimate below a mod lol the little bit under the name just relates to post count in most cases . If your happy then thats great as I still have no clue what your talking about. Motherboard firmwares are called bioses and they're updateable. USB - Universal serial bus its a type of connection not an actual piece of equiptment.

Right, and he is saying that he needs a firewire connector on the motherboard. Come on salty wakey wakey.
@OP: Dont be put off a motherboard just because it doesn't have firewire, you can buy an expansion card easily enough. Of course if it does have firewire onboard then even better...
