Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a dcr-hc21 handycam Sony digital camera. I found out through Sony that this camera is not compatible with Windows Vista. I need an i.link cable, which I purchased at Best Buy yesterday. However, my HP does not have an i.link connection on it. How do I go about getting an i.link card installed? How much do you think it will cost? or is there a converter that I can buy to change the i.link cable into an USB cable that will be compatible with Windows Vista?
I-link it Sony's name for Firewire or IEEE1394. Any PC retailer and many online retailers sell the PCI cards (if you are using a desktop) or an adapter card if you are using a laptop. Before I give further details, it would be worth knowing if you are using a laptop or a desktop PC. Also, what country are you in - that would help identify potential suppliers.
The card and the adapters can be bought for around £10 - £20, and can be fitted easily. I don't know how much a computer store would charge - would guess around £30 - £40.
Firewire is also used for external hard drives, i-pods etc so it's probably worth having the ports at your disposal anyway.
Get back to me with further info, and I can point you more accurately in the right direction
