Hi Simon and all,

That Sound Card does sound good - but Simon, do you have Firewire? If
not, I assume there are USB to Firewire Converters around that would
enable the use of Firewire.
Most other connectors are able to be used with the use of a USB
converter, for example Serial and PS2 Ports.
I know this is going a little off topic, but there's nothing worse
than getting a Sound Card that supports a certain connection like
Firewire, and finding out that there is no Firewire Port on the
computer/laptop.
Simon - I will send you a separate email about helping to get your
computer upgraded...
Have a Happy New year 2013!
Regards.
Lewis.
