First of all, you need to check whether the required Drivers for the Videocam are installed in the Notebook or not.
You should be provided with a Driver Disk along with the Video Cam after installing which, you should be able to connect and use it with the Notebook normally.
If you are not sure about the Driver disk I am talking about, you can contact the Manufacturer of the Video Cam and get the required drivers you need to install.
Hope this helps....

How to add firewire to laptop
I suggest to read this article not pay attention on all details ..but just the idea..I think if you need a fire-wire port this is the less invasive solution ..using the pcmcia slot ...Most computers have this slot cause there used to work with such a card ..
if you do not have it ..use a card reader with a similar slot ..the thing is to avoid making improvisations on your board ..and using a usb adapter may not work ..cause it needs drivers and who knows what else..

New laptop

any laptop that has an iLink 1394 (firewire on apple computers) port and a DVD burner can do it. Any apple laptop with a superdrive (dvd burner) can do it with iMovie/iDVD, and any windows computer with the i.LINK port and Windows Movie Maker can do the job. I know most (if not all) sony, dell, acer and HP laptops come with the i.LINK port standard, just double check the model when you look at the specs. You'll want at least 1gb of ram (preferably 2GB, especially if you're running windows vista), and the firewire cable to connect the computer to the minidv camera (6 pin to 4 pin if you get an apple computer, 4-4 pin if it's a windows notebook)

No input for i-LINK cable for Sony Camcorder

if your computer does not have an i-Link port (also known as firewire) you would need to purchase a PCMCIA card in order to transfer video to your computer such as this one:

are the connectors on the camera the same exact size, or is one bigger than the other? If they are NOT the same size go with the kind of card I mentioned above (it's a 6-pin firewire cable). If the connectors are the same size you need to get either a 6-4 pin firewire cable, or get a card that has a 4-pin connector
