    It's how we connect the camcorder directly to the laptop to download the video we have taken so that Jack can edit it and turn it into a dvd.

    if i were you chris id go the pcmcia firewire card route, when i tried connecting mine thru the usb 2.0 route it wouldnt give me the best option for downloading the footage on to my pc for editing and that connection is way slower than firewire anyway
