How do I import from a DV videocamera?

2010-05-23, 15:53 PM

Since my Edge 15" does not have a Firewire / IEEE 1394 port, how do I get my old DV video imported?

 

Do I have to get an ExpressCard with Firewire / IEEE 1394 port?

I guess you have to answer your own questions around here sometimes! :-)
.
Yes you will need an ExpressCard with Firewire / IEEE 1394 port.
.
I bought the cheapest one I could find on amazon.  It was this one for $25. 
.
Best Connectivity ExpressCard to Firewire IEEE 1394a Controller Card SD-EXP30012
.
It works perfectly.  I can hookup my Firewire cable from my DV video camera and use Windows Movie Maker to import video directly from the camera.
.
So there ya go!
