I own a HP G62-95ev notebook,the problem is that it doesn't have a firewire port to connect my sound card.I bought a firewire to usb adaptor but windows won't recognise it.Why can I do?can I install a firewire card?

What kind of adapter have you bought?
What operating systems are you using?

It's a firewire female to usb male adapter(no drivers)click here.
I'm using windows 7 64bit
processor intel i5 2.53GHz
4GB ram
The motherboard I think it's a HP 143A model

The adapter you show has very bad reports on Amazon and I have a feeling that they don't work. Depending on your laptop you might want to consider click here or click here
