Does a Firewire make sense in my CPU? : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread

I've got an old 100Mhz Compaq computer and a new Canon ZR-10 Digital Video Camera. Does it make sense to purchase a fire wire/fire wire software to install into this CPU? Will it do me any good. Will it be too slow due to my processor speed? Are all firewire compatable with Compaq? Thanks for your help...

I don't see why not. Your 100Mhz pentium will be fine as its more i\o transfer rather than cpu usage. If you have a free pci slot, by all means slap a 1394eee card in.
