Vasileios:

Why not plug a firewire PCI card into an Iyonix? That has PCI slots, after all. Answer? Because there aren't currently any drivers for them, and without drivers, the card is just a lump of plastic and metal that increases your power-consumption. Writing drivers requires information about the hardware which isn't always available, and takes time (so ultimately costs money).
