Could anybody tell me if it is possible to connect an ilink cable IEEE1394 (=firewire) to the Pik2530 ? Thank you very much for your help, I cannot get any answer so far ! :idea:

iLink =/= FireWire, although without the +12V and GND Pins (i.e. the 4-Pin version!)

Can you connect this to an Amilo Pi 25x0?
I don't think so at lest not with a "Pi 25x0" Model, I have a Pi 2550 and it only came with 3x USB 2.0 (1x Powered)
I can't see the Pi 2530 as being that much different.

Thank you. I have received an answer from Fujitsu telling me that there is no Firewire connexion on this notebook. So I wonder if I can add a PCI card and if so which one do I have to choose? Thank your for helping me out!

Assuming that the Mainbord on the Pi 2530 is still similar to my Pi 2550, then ya you would (should), have a free Mini-PCIe Slot (next to where the Intel 3945ABG Wi-Fi), but I'm not aware of any add-on Cards that would be of any help to you with that. :roll:

I think you meant PCMCIA, and sadly the Pi 25x0 doesn't support that type of Card anymore.
But, the good news is that you can use an Express Card (Which replaced the older PCMCIA) the Pi 25x0 can use both the Express Card 34 and 54 devices (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ExpressCard ), and there are plenty of Devices from FireWire / DVB-T / E-SATA / USB 3.0 that can take advantage of that Port.

Thank you very much for your help. I will try to find this Express Card in the Internet.

Oh danke, dann benötige ich also eines dieser Geräte sowie das Firewirekabel 4/4 IEEE 1394 und das war's dann, richtig?

Hallo,
ja, Du benötigst aber nur 1 Port-Anschluss. Außerdem solltest Du wissen, ob Du FW 400 oder 800 hast/brauchst (wegen unterschiedlicher Kabeltypen dafür) .
