Add 2 FireWire800 and 1 FireWire400 port to any desktop with a PCI slot - The PCI1394B_3 3-Port PCI FireWire Adapter Card turns a PCI slot into 2 FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) ports and 1 FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394a) port - a cost-effective solution that lets you connect FireWire 800 devices, as well as older FireWire 400 devices to your desktop computer. A versatile FireWire solution, the adapter card works in both 5v and 3.3v PCI slots and in 64-bit and 32-bit operating environments, making it easy to create a high-speed laptop digital media center, or connect demanding FireWire peripheral devices such as portable hard drives, DV camcorders, digital cameras and CD-RW/DVD-RW drives. This high quality adapter card is designed to provide reliable FireWire 800 and FireWire 400 connections, delivering 800 Mbps and 400 Mbps data transfer rates respectively (a 64-bit PCI slot is required to achieve 800 Mbps data transfer rates). The PCI1394B_3 is backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support.

awesome item,perfect for video. Works well with win xp and even better with win 7. The free video kit is very simple but great if your just starting out.Hooks up easy , just remember to go to the website and get the latest drivers first before install.The software download gives you full control over the device and the options to switch drivers back and forth with just one click.I have used this in both 400 a and 800b modes and the speed and quality is great.A good way to upgrade your computer without having to replace the mobo. get this product.if you want a low price and great tech.
For those hoping to get maximum transfer speeds - the 800 Mbps only works when the card is plugged into a 64-bit PCI slot. If plugged into a 32-bit PCI slot, the card defaults to 400 Mbps regardless of which peripheral is attached. This information is provided in the manual only, unfortunately not in the item description or their spec sheet (should be listed under system requirements!).
This product worked fine for the most part, but I have a strange problem with it. I installed the card in what I believe to be a standard PCI slot. However, the card extends beyond the slot. I thought nothing much of this at first, but the results bear out a problem. The two Firewire 800 input jacks are working fine, but the one I really need for my video transfer device - the Firewire 400 input jack - is totally dead. A tech guy I consulted - who knows far more about computers than me - guessed that the contact section of the card that extends beyond the slot is the part that powers the 400 input jack. I have only heard of 'PCI' and 'PCI express' slots/cards. The tech made up a name for the card 'PCI extended' and said he had never seen this before. The card is clearly built for a longer slot than I have. I do know the difference between a PCI and a PCIe. My computer is a brand new custom build. I wonder if there are more than one type of PCI? I want to buy the right...
