I have a new Mini DV Camera, and I can't figure out how to get the Movie in my Camera copied to my Hard drive.

Did you install any software for the camera?

To use USB streaming, the DV Driver, Video Codec and DirectX 9.0. programs must be installed in the PC. Insert the disc into the CD-Rom drive of your PC. Follow the steps for installing the driver and then install the ULEAD software.

If the PC has a firewire port you should get better quality using that

Thanks. Yes, I installed all of the software that came with it. My computer DOES have a Firewire input, but how do I use that? Do I need a software, or does the computer just recoginize the camera, just like new hardware? I know nothing about firewire. I do know I need a 6 pin to 4 pin cable, that's all.

Firewire is straightforward

If you already have the cable you can get a trial of Nero to see how you get on with it

Roxio have media creator, though no trial version as far as I am aware

If you want to look at USB capture, can you post where it differs from their guide
