Adding Firewire slot to Amilo Li 2735?

Postby mixer » Thu Apr 09, 2009 9:00 pm

So i got my hands on Echo Audiofire2 soundcard but it connects to computer via firewire and my Amilo Li 2735 does not have those for some reason. Is there any way to add one? Options i can think of are:
1. Add Firewire card
2. Add PCMCIA slot
3. Use some kind of USB to Firewire converter
Not sure if any those works in practice tho, any imput is appreciated.

The only chance I see is a USB adapter. But since the protocols of firewire and USB differ a lot this doesn't necessariy mean that you soundcard will work with it.
