tethering aptus II 8 to a PC without firewire

Hi,

im changing my macbook pro retina for many reasons and moving to a new MSI system which beats my macbook and weights almost the half ( 1,2kg ).

anyway, i just realized i will have a problem with the conection of the camera for tethering purposes.

so until now i use to use an external FW adapter powered with a battery, and that conected to the mac firewire to thunderbolt adapter.

so the question is.. how do i convert the firewire cable to be able to use it in the new PC?

if there is no coverter to USB, is there any way to add a firewire port to the laptop? it obviusly doesnt has pcmcia ports as its a new laptop.

there must be a way!

Hi

There is no such thing as Firewire->USB

Here are some tested PCI cards which you can use in your Windows computer

Hi
If there is thunderbolt then this is a option.
If there is a PC Card slot then this is option.

If there is nothing else then USB for peripheral connection, then you are dead in the water I am afraid.
(Except for upgrading the back to a Credo instead.)
