It seems I need to connect a 10 pin Creative SB 1394 Internal firewire connector to a 4 pin external firewire port to install a Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum sound card in my machine.  The 10 pin connector (which uses only 9 pins/wires) is supposed to connect internally to 1394 pins, but I looked and can't find any in my machine (a Sony Vaio VGC-RB42G).   The documentation Sony sent and posted online is pretty useless.  To further complicate matters, a search on the web lead me to 2 different "pinouts."  See  http://pinouts.ru/data/creative_sb1394_pinout.shtml and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2888.  I guess I'll have to splice a piece of 4 pin firewire cable to the 10 pin connector but I need to know which of the 9 leads to use and where they go on the 4 pin cable.  If anyone can help I would very much appreciate it.  The device does have an independant power hookup so what I assume are the power leads should not be necessary.
    Obviously a better solution would be to find the internal 10 pin socket but, as I said above, I haven't been able to find one and the documentation is no help.
     Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Get this the pinouts.ru one is correct, but you need to buy a header to connect it unless your case has one or maybe your Drive Bay header that came with your card is usong it. I have an Audigy 2 ZS as well and I just cinnect it to my case header minding the pins because there is no keyout on some of them.
