Connecting desktops with a FireWire interface

If the desktop comes with a 6-pin FireWire socket, simply connect your FireWire device and the socket with a 6-pin FireWire cable CA-1394-66/3.

Connecting desktops without a FireWire interface

If the desktop does not have a FireWire interface, you need to equip it by installing a PCI card, PCI/1394o1, in the computer. Then connect the FireWire device with the same cable mentioned above.
