Write a review for: StarTech.com 4 Port PCI 1394a FireWire Adapter Card with Digital Video Editing Kit
The IEEE-1394 Firewire Card is easy to use and is great because it comes with its own four pin cable to connect to most camcorders/digital camera's. Also comes with editing software dispite the fact I actually bought a newer version of the software that was included. Great value for money. No problems what so ever. Commend BT for speedy transaction and delivery. Highly Recommended.
Arrived in 24 hrs, installed in a couple of minutes, one minute to reboot my Dell XP machine and then I connected my DV camcorder (using the supplied firewire cable) and uploaded video. Perfect! Performance is better than the onboard IEEE-1394 on my HP desktop.
Excellent piece of hardware, easy to follow installation instructions. (This also includes a FireWire which wasn't apparent in description so I bought one of them also)
Slotted straight in, booted fine - no software to load (with XP), plugged in cable (supplied) to video camera and started transferring video - brilliant.
