I think its a nice bargain, as it was an unopened gift for her. BUT this is my problem I have a dell desktop pc, but it does not have firewire....but i have a few usb ports.....I do NOT want to open up my desktop pc for ANY reason.....is there any kind of EXTERNAL usb to firewire converters please??? I'm not really into opening up my dell desktop pc. Its a Dell dimension 5100 series, purchased in January....no firewire ports,.....but i'd def like to connect the handycam to my desktop please......
There may be a USB out on the camera, but best way would be to fit a PCI Firewire Card in a Empty slot in the PC. There may be a Firewire Header on the motherboard that you can just connect a front socket to
