Hey all,
I have a SB Audigy 1 which incorporates an internal SB1394 (firewire) connection on-board, which is apparently for connecting the firewire port on the optional breakout box. It consists of 9 pins.
The thing is, I have just bought an Antec case which has a firewire port at the front, which is supposed to be connected to the motherboard via the cable leading out of it - which has 6 pins on the end. But my new Gigabyte motherboard has no firewire connection on it. So, here's the question.
Could i connect the 6 pin firewire cable coming from the firewire port at the front of the case, to the 9 pin SB1394 connection on the Audigy? The 6 connectors do fit over any of the 9 pins, its just - which ones?
Any thoughts? Thanks.
;)

No...all you would do is make a loop from one port to the other. Does the Audigy actutually have a firewire controller on it?

You mean like a IDE controller, etc? - to control more than 1 port?
I'm not sure. What do you mean by loop?

The card has 10 pins with one used as the key for the connector. Your case manual should have the pinouts for the front panel and the cable connector. Just match them up....the pins on the card should be labeled as to pin 1, etc. Here are the Audigy pinouts:

Pin Signal
1 TPA+
2 TPA-
3 PHY_GND
4 PHY_GND
5 TPB+
6 TPB-
7 NC
8 NC
9 PHY_GND
10 KEY (Not Used)

What is the make and model of the case...maybe we can find the pinouts and draw some arrows to the connections that need to be moved.
