    If you have Firewire, there is probably one (or more) at the back of your PC, but new models will have one in the front as well.
    There are several connectors for Firewire, but most likley the one on your PC (if its is a desktop) looks like a rectangular one with a trapeze shape at the right sides. Probably there will be an inscription 1394 besides the port.
