okay, so firewire... do you need to have a firewire port on your computer in order to use an interface? if not is there anyway you can?
Yes you need a port. You could buy a cheap PCI adapter for about 20 bucks.
Yes and no. I had a 1st gen iPod a few years ago and I had to install a firewire port on my computer.
how much does i cost to put in the new port, is it possible to do by yourself?
putting the the port is dead easy. pci for a desktop, pcmcia for laptop, you should be able to find one cheap either way
