The 4 to 6 pin dv cable I bought today does not seem to fit into the firewire sockets on my Mesh pc. The aperture on the pc is much larger and square and seems to have more connectors. Can anyone please direct me to where I can get some info. many thanks.
Stick 'firewire' into Google image search and you will see the different connections. You may have a different motherboard layout than your manual suggests (if this is the case try looking on the net for the manufacturer's site).
I pulled out the pc and found a socket at the very bottom left hand side of the case which seems to be Firewire and it works. On the pc diagram that I am looking at a large arrow points to the other socket which I have tried to use ,so goodness knows what that does. Very confusing !! anyway thanks for the help.
