My friend has a PCI firewire card. It has a small 4 pin connector to give it power. Is this needed only if the attached devices draw power through Firewire?
He has a hard drive and a DV Camera attached to it, both of which have their own power supplies. I want to remove the 4 pin connector, because it's taking up one of the molex connectors (via an adapter) and we need a spare molex.
