Firewires don't have different sizes. It was internal or external? Internal would all be PCI - which all computers have. External it would be USB - which practically all PCs have. How old is it?

You have a CD Writer? What are you using the Firewire for? A Cable from the Camera to the PC would be USB and would have come with it?

Lol; it is. You'll need a Firewire PCI Slot; probably from the same place you brought the Cable. A good deal of PCs now have them, up to about 8, 9 months old will have it built in to the Motherboard?

USB is slower than a firewire so how can you have one that connects to USB

USB is to slow for digi photos and video

Well yeah; but it is more widely used - and USB 2 is not really that much slower, only a few Mbps.
