Is there a solution for these new computers with no firewire card? I should have checked but with an upscale model one would expect it to have a card.

Unfortunately a lot of newer PC's are not coming with 1394 Firewire, its slowly dying out in favor of USB3 and Thunderbolt with the various PC manufacturers. Luckily many 1394 cards are available for a small amount of money - although it does take up a slot.

The recommended ones are here:

But you generally don't go wrong with a Texas Instruments chipset.
