Question about Canon ZR45MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
So, I've read that it's not possible to transfer videos from the miniDV to my computer without a firewire cable, but my problem is that I don't have a port for a firewire cable on my Acer netbook. Is there any other way? An adapter cable for USB? Something?
Unfortunately USB and Firewire use two completely different protocols for handling the data transfer, so it is not possible to just buy an adaptor that will change one to the other.
You can however buy fairly cheap plug in Firewire cards that will fit a notebook, providing you have an expansion socket (PCMCIA, CardBus, ExpressCard). Just try Googling '"Firewire for notebook"
Hope this helps!
