 The newer Lap Tops that I have seen on the market do not have a Fire Wire (1394) port on them.

In order for me to use my Flex 3000 with a newer lap top, how would I adapt this to acept the firewire 1394 cable?

 Is their a USB adapter or an external card that can be used ?

Dear OM,

You need to have a PCIe slot on the laptop so you can add a PCIe card to adapt a FireWire port to your computer.   There is no workable USB to FW adapter.     If you do not have a PCIe,  you will need to find a laptop with a PCIe slot.   Most of the commerical models still have the PCIe slots,  but you usually will not find them in the Big Box stores and may have to order from commerical vendors or directly from the PC companies.
