Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hello everyone, I'm kinda new to the wonderful world of camcorders, and I bought a Sony Handycam DCRHC20 to start out. But I already have a problem, heh. You have to understand that I'm a total newbie to this :D. So here's my problem and question : With the camcorder, I got a CD called Picture Package, but with that prog, I can only burn my videos to a CD, or transfer them to my computer... but already edited! It automaticly adds a music, edits my videos, cut them... That's not really what I wanted... I'd like to transfer them directly to my comp, and edit them with a third-party prog. So, I'd like to transfer my intact videos to my computer.. I hope it is possible? I've heard some things about a fireware card, but like I said, I'm a total newbie and I don't want to burn money on this if it can't help me ;). Thanks for your answers.

You need a firewire interface, Firewire on the computer, and a video editing program. Windows XP has the moviemaker, which will do. A more elegant way is a Mac which will have everything you need included.
