Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop ?

Firewire with video camera

\015 How do I connect my video camera which uses 4pin firewire to my Dell DM 4500?\015

Answers :

You can purchase a firewire card that will fit into a PCI slot on your motherboard. It is really very easy to install, phillips' screwdriver (2PT) is the only tool you'll require. REMOVE POWER CORD, pop open the side, look for two or three white slots about 5" long towards the bottom...that is a PCI slot. Now look at the card you are going to put in, you'll see you need to remove another silver colored rear slot cover that is even with the PCI slot...just take your time and slide it into the PCI slot and the silver slot at the sametime. Put one screw in it close'er up run the software that came with it and bingo your video camera will work with you puter.
Hope you got this...it is really simple (plug it back in after replacing the side panel)
good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly
