I have also been reading about firewires and IEEE card. Do I need to intall one? I bought my computer from dell in 2004. It is a dell deminsion 4600.
When I connect camcorder my computer does show a new hardware device has been connected and I have actually gotten it to copy disc but then I can't find it on hard drive. Also it takes a long time.
I know these are a lot of issues. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy. Can't find anyone who is knowledgeable about this topic. I just want to cut out video from my dghtr's birthday when my husband forgot to turn camera off and filmed 30 minutes of the floor and ceiling.
