No.... you NEED A Firewire port...just buy a acheap PCI Firewire card...
All the best Brett
You could if the USB to Firewire converter works the way its described. I've done that with one of those converter kits that come with a 15' extended usb cable.
What Brett said.
If you have no IEEE1394 ports on your motherboard then you need to buy a IEEE1394 add-on card to install into a PCI/PCI-e slot. I wouldn't suggest trying to find (I'm not even sure they exist) a USB to Firewire converter cable/box as it will likely cost as much or more than the add-on card.
