Chapter 2. The iPod Sync Connection > Installing a FireWire Card

2.2. Installing a FireWire Card

Most computer stores, both retail and online, sell FireWire/1394 expansion cards (Figure 2-3); they're available for both desktop and laptop computers. FireWire cards designed for desktop machines fit into one of the computer's spare PCI slots on the motherboard, making the new FireWire ports available on the back of the case along with all the other port connectors.

Figure 2-3. FireWire cards come in all shapes and sizes and can add two, three, or four FireWire ports to a computer. The cards snap into an empty PCI slot on the computer's motherboard. Adding a FireWire card will allow you to use FireWire-enabled devices like digital camcorders, CD burners, and iPods.
