thanks for the extensive research. who would do that but you? good to have you back.
yeah, i already knew the Abit brackets won't fit since they have a different kind of plug.
why oh why are the FireWire connectors on motherboards not standardized like USB are???
cutting and soldering the wires into a new plug is a bit beyond me (and who had the time anyway?)
does the one you have look like the one in the pics posted by cfitz?
1 regular FireWire port, one mini port ?
i don't live in the states so i can't browse B&M stores
the USB brackets are
easier to come by, i agree.
i've already seen the 2 products at newegg you linked to.
however i'm interested in the FireWire not USB.
the Biostar USB/FireWire combo one:

it's hard to tell from the pic, but it looks like the FireWire plugs are the brown ones, and they are 5x2, not 8x1 like the connector on the Asus mobo.
