new to the forum and have a question about this computer - the thinkpad edge E520
I want to use it for digital editing and need to input video via firewire
I know the E520 does not have a firewire - but I have an expresscard - to 6 pin firewire - adaptor - will this work?
Any help gratefully appreciated

thanks for your help
yes it's a 34 expresscard
forgive my ignorance - but what is the issue with the operating system ?
I thought the E520 ran Windows 7 - does this support a firewire to expresscard connection?

it's a Lindy
it worked fine in my old laptop - A Fujitsu Siemens Amilo P1510 - running Windows XP
my concern is that the old laptop had built in firewire - whilst the edge E520 does not
once again thanks for your help - I'm not hugely technically savvy
