I'm trying to capture from my DV video camera (Victor/JVC GR DV3500). I'm new to this so bare wityh me while I ask these questions:
1. From reading this forum I gather Firewire is the only decent way to capture. With my camera I got a regular USB cable and another USB cable called 'DV-USB convert cable'. This is not a Firewire connection is it?
2. Before I get a Firewire connection I want to be sure it can be installed on my PC. What is a PCI slot and how do I know if there is one available for the Firewire hardware on my PC?
My specs are:
Dell Dimension 4600C
Pentium 4 CPU 2.53GHz
512 Mb RAM
