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. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

You can fit an add-on Firewire (DV) interface card to a PC that has expansion slots (not a laptop). These are available cheaply from Amazon or eBay, and other suppliers. There is also apparently an adapter to connect firewire into a USB port, but this is reported not to work well with video cameras.
