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.

I have a macbook that does not have a firewire port to connect the camera to import video. Is there an adapter for usb?


Unfortunately, even if there were a USB adapter, the USB port would not be able to keep-up with the data transfer speeds of the DV-Out over firewire from the camcorder.
Sorry for the bad news. I wish that I could have provided better news.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year.

Have mini dv recorder, need dv to usb cord to load videos on pc


There is no such cord. You will need to have a DV port on your computer and use a DV cable to transfer the data. If you don't already have a DV port, then you can get add-in PCI or PCcard firewire cards that will give you a DV/firewire/IEEE1394/i.Link/s400 port (all those are the different names that manufacturers call the port).

I'm afraid that there is chatter on the forums that these Firewire to USB convertors don't work properly with video cameras. That doesn't mean you can't try it, of course.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you have a Windows desktop PC, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. No help on a laptop unfortunately.

Another firewire problem


there's a cable out in the market , it's a firewire and usb connector. you can use the usb for plug into your laptop and use the firewire to your video camera. Its a bit slow but that would help you.

I want to capture movie from dv tape to compaq presario notebook


You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394 firewire card in one of your PCI slots.
