Question about Samsung VP-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
How do I copy to VHS from the Samsung VP-D70 mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a brand new VP-D31. It still has the protector on the screen. I acquired this (legally!) but it has no charger,cables, battery or any etcs. I got it from the Police Auctions and was too ignorant to understand what I was getting. The item was obviously stolen from a store shelf - hence no bits. How about you buy it from me?

This is a Firewire cable, also known as DV or IEEE 1394. Sony call it i.Link. It is not compatible with USB and you cannot get a lead to connect it to a USB port. There are converter/adapters that are supposed to allow Firewire to connect to USB but many forum posts say they do NOT work for video transfer. Unfortunately, most Mini-DV cameras will not transfer video by USB cable, even when they have a USB connection (it is usually only used for still pictures).
Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you had a desktop PC, you could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the expansion bus. This will come with a driver for the card.
I have a Samsung Mini-DV, and do transfers with it to the one computer I have that has a Firewire port. It is the only thing I use that computer for, and the reason I haven't thrown it out.
