Hi everyone,
I use a desktop pc, but I have just bought a laptop for the wife, of ebay, it comes with a 1394 usb card, I hav'nt a clue what this is for, can anyone please explain what it is for, sorry for my ignorance.

1394 is not USB, it is Firewire.

Its another way of connecting things, as pj123 has correctly said 1394 is firewire, some items can be connected via firewire instead of USB 2.0.

I've not actually got anything that can connect via firewire so I can't advise on its use, all my stuff is USB.

Thanks pj123 and Totally-braindead,
Sorry did not get back sooner, had an early night.
I will leave this open to see if anyone can tell me about firewire connection.
thanks again
