    You probably need a PCI-E
    maybe this one?

    or this

    Make sure you read the reviews, I have no idea which is better and there are definitely other choices, you want a PCI-E to 1394 Firewire Card

    Sorry to hear that, my guess is because that card you tried to install is PCI it doesn't work. You need a PCI slot but you have PCI-E (PCI-Express) which is a more modern interface. A PCI-E card should work.

    Your board has 3 full length PCI-E Slots and 4 short PCI-E x1 slots to choose from. You should be able to install a PCI-E 1394 x1 card into any of those.

    The amazon Syba card doesn't appear to require additional power but the Rosewill does, so I'd think the Syba would be more useful. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002S53IG8/?tag=tec06d-20

    edit:
    This one looks good
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001JTTVT2/?tag=tec06d-20

    Reviews indicate some of these have compatibility issues between the firewire, operating system, and what you plug into it so do some research with the reviews on these products.

    I've had extremely good luck on e-bay. I've bought CPU's, RAM, ard Drives, and a GPU on there. None have had a problem. Likewise, I've only sold motherboards and GPU's on there that are exactly as advertised. I think you should be fine.

    No no that's fine. He just needs to be sure he understands the rules before posting a for sale thread.
