    Those USB1 and USB2 connectors are most likey not for firewire, but just USB. If your Motherboard had the jumpers for the firewire they would be listed in the manuel there. If they aren't then you don't have it.

    i just followed the wires to the top of my case..and the usb 1 and 2 connecters go to a box which holds 2 usb ports and a firewire port..so which one of the wires do you think is usb? and which one is firewire?also the image is a cable coming from a 8 in 1 media reader..so would that be usb?
