FireWire PCMCIA IEEE 1394 CardBus Adapter - Bringing 400 Mbps of blazing FireWire speed to your notebook computer!
Equation: Ease and simplicity of USB + incredible speed and technology = "FIREWIRE"
The FireWire PCMCIA CardBus is a 32-bit notebook adapter
with dual 400 Mbps FireWire and IEEE 1394 ports. Devices
such as high speed USB external CD/RW drives which
only run at write speeds of 8X and rewrite speeds
of 4X will operate at internal device efficiency resulting
in write speeds up to 16X and rewrite speeds of 10X.
Additional advantages range from enabling FireWire
capable hard disk drives to using high tech HDTV’s
that are equipped with built-in fireWire/IEEE-1394
Ports. Drivers are not
required for windows 98SE / ME

FireWire Connections, and Video
the Firewire IEEE1394 PCMCIA CardBus is not unlike
any other PCMCIA card, the difference is
in the speed and performance.
Firewire cable connectors are slightly different than
a USB connector as seen above. The Firewire
connectors are a shaped connector rather than a rectangular

The fact that I didn't
have to install any drivers was a big plus, this meant I didn't
have to configure anything or worry
about conflicting IRQ's. I running windows XP with this FireWire
IEEE-1394 CardBus Adapter. Set
up is very easy, unlike the USB cable comparitively the CardBus
is smaller and I think easier to travel with. In the testing
of this device I used a digital camera by JVC which is a
Dual Cam Firewire capable camera. Such applications in which
to use the Firewire IEEE-1394 CardBus would be seen here with
a digital video camera, a portable Hard Drive enclosures,
HDTV and future devices. I say future because in my research
what technology is leaning towards for portability, increased
speed, more efficient data transfer.
If you're unfamiliar with this technology, you really need
to catch up before you fall to far behind, the future of speed,
mobility, and efficiency is leaning towards FireWire IEEE-1394.
The fact of the matter is that most newer PC's and laptops
are coming equipped with the firewire ports and I think this
card is one of the best to expand your system if you're not
FireWire IEEE-1394 enabled.
