Windows 7: 1394 Port ?

28 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 64bit
1394 Port ?


New PC has a 1394 Port.

Familiar with the USB Ports of course, but have never used a 1394 Port.

What and where is it used ?
For what ?

What devices should utilize it ?

And whatever else I'm not sharp enough to know to ask about these Ports, please ?
