Hi, can any one advise please, I am trying to connect a Pinnacle dazzle to PC but it will only connect to a USB 2 socket is there a connector to use the fire wire I do have?? or am I just hoping such a lead exists.??

As far as I can see Pinnacle Dazzle does not have a Firewire port only USB2 (which in theory is faster than Firewire400)
It will work fine on USB2

I am aware that what you say is true but I should point out that I do not have USB2 on my PC hence the question.

Get a USB2 PCI card if you have a Spare PCI slot assuming you are running XP

You need to buy a USB2 PCI card then click here
USB2 is backward compatible with USB.
Have you any USB slots at all?

I do have 4 USB on the rear and 2 on the front with firewire and a couple of audio sockets.

Why do you say that you do not have USB2?????

Are you running Windows 98 or Windows ME?????

I am on XP pro.and I do NOT have USB 2

Is your computer a very old comp? as any Computer in at least last three years will have USB2
