Probably a silly question, but is all firewall ports the same? I have a system with an old sound card. And no firewire. I'm upgrading to a Sound Blaster Audigy, for purely audio reasons. And I was planning on adding a firewire card. But the SB Audigy includes firewire....
Is that just as good as a firewire card? I assume it's all the same. I just found it odd that a sound card would have a firewire port?SB1394™ Connectivity

Seems like I saw a few posts where members were using the firewire port on this card with no problems. Should work fine. You could do a forum search for posts. Most (not all) firewire cards are the same. I don't think you will have a problem with the Audigy card. Not sure why firewire is on a video card, but it sound like a good deal.
I have the Sound Blaster Audigy for 2 years and it works perfect for me. My Sony digital camera is connected throught FireWire port and have no problems with it.

The firewire on my Audigy unit also works fine. I have an Audigy Platinum Ex with the external box.
