downloading fro, camcorder

A friend has been given a camcorder which uses a firewire port to download onto his computer. He does not have a firewire port - is there any way round this problem?

Great - are they difficult to fit - he is a novice but will give it a go.

Not especially but precautions regarding anti static are required.

Many thanks - have looked at this article and as I know he has Windows XP and it looks as though it should not be too difficult - although he has never done anything of this nature before.

He can use Movie Maker on XP to download from USB

Will that work until he has installed Firewire?

Only if the camera has a USB port and the pc has a USB 2.0 port.
