You can purchase a PCMCIA Firewire card from newegg.com or your favorite retailer.

There is typically a port located on the bottom but it appears this model is not compatible with a docking station.. Seems were out of options. :thumbsup:

I see!

Then I might need to fix my desktop comp a bit, put a PCI firewire on the motherboard and some RAM. bad thing is its a Pent4 in 1.9GHz with an Nvidia TNT card and the memory is DDR1 lol.

But I guess I don't have an option.

It runs smoothly Premiere CS2. The render might take some time more than a new one but my budget is very limited. Do you have in mind any small laptops with firewire on your mind that I could do some serious video chopping with? Or what specs should I check?

Thanks for all your help!
