I have a USB hub but that only works for external devices. The card reader with USB & Firewire ports is one that mounts in a 3.5" external drive bay so it needs a header connection inside the case. To get the firewire access I'm looking for, it looks like I'll have to buy a new card that comes with software and drivers. If I'm doing that, I might just buy another card that has both firewire and USB on it so I can hook up both of the USB devices on the card reader, assuming two adapter cards wouldn't interfere with each other. This is what I'm trying to find out. It would be a whole lot simpler if I could afford to upgrade my rather old PC but I can't right now so I'm trying to skate by with adapter cards.
