Got my daughters laptop with excellent help and advice from this site and was hoping anyone could now help me to find the best, not too expensive firewire card.
We have the Acer Aspire 5535, which i believe can take the 54mm or 34mm cards. I have read a little and got a little confused as to whether i need one with power supply(?)
I have windows vista basic, do i also need software with the card i purchased?
I only want to watch and maybe edit footage off my camcorder. i already have the firewire cable because i installed a firewire card into my tower pc, which has been demoted since the laptop arrived, hence wanting to set the laptop up with firewire.
Any help kindly received.
This one is £28.95, but i don't understand what all this means and didn't actually want to pay that much. I want a good, capable card, but i know it won't be used that often.
