Thunderbolt ports on motherboards and Firewire Devices on Windows Tags: Motherboards Firewire Thunderbolt Product Last response: February 2, 2013 12:06 PM in Motherboards Share guybrushT February 2, 2013 7:16:17 AM Hi, I am noticing that many motherboard are now not featuring Firewire which is a disaster for me as I have a external FW sound card. I am thinking of building a mini itx system and wondered if it is possible to connect a FW soundcard to a Thunderbolt port using a converter such as http://store.apple.com/uk/product/MD464ZM/A/thunderbolt... but on a Windows 7 64 system. Is TB to FW a bad idea like USB to FW converters where you are not actually using the FW bus, just some dodgy conversion? Any experiences? Also any mini-itx boards with FW that could be reccommended would be great.
