    Get a firewire card with at least one internal port like this. I have that one and it works fine.

    Comp usa just had some on sale at $9.99 down from $29.99
    They has three external 1394a ports 2x6pin and 1x4pin
    and one internal 6pin.
    They still may have them on sale.
    I purchase two for some dated machines, they work great with my external drives and HDTV recording from my Samsung Sir-T165 ota tuner.

    This was only an in store sale price, so the web price is higher.
