Just bought used VL-Z1, can I take stills w/o SD-card. Do I need to add a card (I see a slot at the bottom of camera). Can I still get 8MB card for this camera, how much Mpixels would I be getting, how about upload to XP machine, Is it still doable or even worthwhile? 2004 camera

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.
Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.
Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can usually be found on Amazon or eBay. Try a search on your camera model number. Most cameras need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.
It honestly doesn't matter what brand of micro SD you stick in your MP3 player, so I wouldn't worry too much. Micro SD's are much smaller, so no, you can't use a normal SD in a Micro slot. Most however do have an SD "shell" that you can stick your Micro into, and use just like a normal SD card. Also I know that MOST mp3 players allow you to add pictures, videos, etc, and having a Micro SD inside should allow you to add things directly onto it, so i dont see why you wouldnt be able to access the contents of the Micro from your MP3.
