hi all. I have been editing on a Mac and have been connecting it and my editing tape - a Sony DSR-11, via Firewire 400. (The DSR-11 has a IEEE 1394 on the other end of the Firewire that goes into the computer.)
Now, building a PC, with a Rampage III Extreme mother board - I hope (to afford it), I am unsure about how to connect the DSR-11 since the mobo does NOT have Firewire ports.
Can anyone help?
If there is no on-board FW400, get a separate firewire card; any simple PCI card will do as long as you make sure that it has a TI chip.
