I want to transfer mini dv tapes to my desktop.
As I understand I need a PCIe 3 ×4 card.
Not sure what type of PCIe card will suit and which brand to buy.
See attached a picture of the slot.
Thanks a lot in advance for help.

Assuming the motherboard doesn't disable the slot due to other slots being populated, you can use a PCI-e x1 card in a PCIe x2 slot, PCIe x4 slot, PCIe x8 slot or even a PCIe x16 slot without problems. Just make sure the rear bracket is secured to your case with a screw to keep the card firmly in place.
A firewire card with a Texas Instrument chipset has the best reputation for compatibility with older firewire devices. If you can find a source for one, the Syba SY-PEX30016 Firewire card has a TI chipset as well as both firewire 400 and firewire 800 ports.

Thanks a lot @usually_quiet.
How can I check if my motherboard is able to operate more than one populated slot at the same time?
Appreciate your help !
easiest way is plug things in

I have bought and Installed the Syba-SY-PEX30016-Firewire card. My capturing software is not finding the card. I would appreciate any ideas how to solve it.
