How to transfer video from camcorder to PC

I actually have a PVDV 200 model bought in 2000 in Canada. It only seems to have ability to use an IEEE 1394 cable to transfer images to computer (LSJA 0276). I donot have this cable but I also do not have a computer which could take the number of pins this cable has. My laptop has a smaller connector. Is there an alternative cable or any way to use USB for transfer? If not, what cable should I buy to connect this to my computer. Also, the drivers were all for Windows 98. Where to get updated drivers? Any help is appreciated.

The camera has two interfaces, the firewire or ieee-1394 for transferring video to the computer and serial interface (RS232) to transfer picture from the memory card to the computer. If you do not want to use either interfaces, you can buy cheap memory card reader (less than $10) to transfer the image from the MMC card to the PC via USB. If you want to transfer the video to PC and does not want to use the fire wile link, then you have to buy a video capture device (cheapest is less than $30)and connect to the video-audio output. I would recommend to use the firewire if you are intending to transfer the video.

    A FireWire connection lets you send data to and from high-bandwidth digital devices such as digital camcorders, and it's faster than USB. See more computer accessory pictures. ­You have probably heard the term FireWire if you have any interest in digital video -- or maybe you know it as Sony i.Link or as IEEE 1394, the offical name for the standard. FireWire is a way to connect different pieces of equipment so they can easily and quickly share information.
    ­Originally created by Apple and standardized in 1995 as the specification IEEE 1394 High Performance Serial Bus, FireWire is very similar to Universal Serial Bus (USB). The designers of FireWire had several particular goals in mind when they created the standard:
    • Fast transfer of data
    • Ability to put lots of devices on the bus
    • Ease of use
    • Hot-pluggable ability
    • Provision of power through the cable
    • Plug-and-play performance
    • Low cabling cost
    • Low implementation cost

Can I use Firewire to transfer video?

Your computer must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 (Firewire) interface and video capture software. Provided you have both of these, follow the directions below. To connect your digital camcorder to your computer using IEEE1394, follow these steps: 1. Connect the IEEE 1394 interface on your camcorder to the IEEE 1394 interface on your computer. 2. Turn on your computer. 3. Turn on your camcorder. 4. Start the video capture software on the computer. Image capture should begin provided the computer hardware and software are configured correctly. If image capture does not begin, you must consult the computer or capture card manufacturer for assistance. Note: If you don't have an IEEE 1394 interface on your computer, you can buy an IEEE 1394 pci card at your local computer store that will work with most current computers.
