Hi, I'm trying to find out if I can plug a camera with an IEEE 1394 into my IBM Aptiva 2139 E5D? Can't find any info a IBM web site. Anybody know? I do have USB, I know that much.

In a word, No - your 2139E5D doesn't support 1394. You can, however buy a 1394 PCI card, if you haven't used up your available PCI slots (I own a 2139E5D, also). Maxtor makes a 2-port 1394 PCI about $50.00 at Best Buy.

You will also need a free IRQ in addition to the PCI slot.

Good Luck.

PS - There is a small new board that caters to IBM owners (not exclusively). Many of the people there either still own, worked for, or upgraded from IBM computers. For future help you might give them a try regarding the 2139E5D.
