Re: 1394/Firewire connection to motherboard?
Yeah, it's nice of these companies to offer Firewire on their Card Reader interfaces, however - you need a 9 port Firewire header on your motherboard. If it's not mentioned in the manual, you simply don't have one. You should get yourself a PCI Firewire card, and a Card Reader that connects it's front Firewire port via a standard cable - that'll connect to a standard Firewire port. Any good Firewire card will have an internal port too.
