Video to PC

I have a Sony HC44E video camera with docking station which has both USB and DV-out connections. Which is the best way of 'uploading' to a computer? What do I need in my PC to use the DV-out connection - i.e. do I need extra hardware. My PC is a 900MHz AMD processor running Windows 2000 Pro with a 32Mb Graphics card and 380Mb (ish) of memory.

Just use the USB connection for a simple life. I assume it's USB2.0? Although your PC is plenty old enough to lack USB2, so your transfer rate is going to crawl along.
If by DV-out, you mean video-out, then a graphics card with video-in would be the obvious choice - strangely a bit hard to find unfortunately. click here

Many Thanks for the advice. I think I'll stick with the USB until I upgrade my computer in a couple of years.
