Article applies to: Saffire - Entire range.
Many PC laptop firewire cards use a smaller 4 pin firewire connection. The only difference between the two FW ports is that the 6-pin can supply power and the 4-pin can't. If you only have 4-pin then simply connect up the Mains adapter that's provided to power the Saffire. Otherwise, the operation should be the same. Please also check that the firewire chipset on the computer is compatible with the Saffire. The chipset should either be VIA or Texas Instruments.
