    trust me, i have inspected my camera and i can only find four inputs, one in the front for the AC adapter, and three lined up on the side labeled S video out,(this one is about 1/2 inch in diameter) then A/V out then RFU DC out. but none of the connectors seem to match up with any of these.

It's an analog. Firewire only works with digital. You need a capture card or a breakout box. A digital dv vcr would work too.

Was having a look at the manual... no firewire... no usb... special cord that splits into audio and video rca jacks and S-video are your only options

    From the looks of things no... but read up on various video cards ... a tv tuner type one or one that accepts and rca plug type feed might work... but then you still have to get the cable as well.
