firewire express card - 54mm - HELP!

  kfq61 14:38 24 Jan 2008

I have a Gateway laptop and have just realised that I cannot fit my old pci firewire card into the usual slot as this laptop has an express card slot 54mm. I am trying to buy a new card but they all appear to be for 34mm, I read somewhere that you can a use a 34mm and it will work in a 54mm slot. Is this correct.

Would be grateful if anyone can point me in the right direction.

Many thanks
