You did not tell us exactly what model Inspiron you have amd I am going oby the assumption that it has a PCMCIA slot. Do what I did, get a PCMCIA-to-Firewire adapter. It works on my old toshiba and my old HP ;-) They are not to expensive and readily available at places like [http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=pcmcia+to+firewire+adapter&hl=en&biw=1024&bih=629&prmd=imvns&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=8105200738778327335&sa=X&ei=St2kTq3FBLHfsQLv97mLBQ&ved=0CG0Q8wIwAA|like this.] Hope this helps, good luck.
