Dell Latitude E6400 & FireWire Interface

Question:

I recently purchased a Dell Latitude E6400, I am trying to have it work with the Presonus Firebox. The E6400 does not have a Firewire port. What do you recommend?

Answer:
Boy, that is a tough one. I'm not aware of any converters from USB to FireWire. The only way to add FireWire to a laptop is through some sort of expansion slot. Does your laptop have one? Like PCMCIA or Expresscard.

Here's another discussion of this same topic: http://tinyurl.com/htezspw

The short answer - you will need one of these options:
1. Get an expansion card for the laptop to add FireWire
2. Get another interface, like this one: http://amzn.to/1XvZ1qB
3. Get another computer - most expensive!
