Great forum. I took the advice and immediately returned my Samsung dvd based camcorder to the shop in exchange for a Sony DCR HC37 miniDV item and I am very happy with it. I have been filming my son, who was born yesterday, and now I need to download the tape to my PC to edit. The question is, how can I find out if it has a firewire socket? I have had a look and there is a possible 6 pin socket near to the 5 USB sockets but I may be mistaken. My PC is a Dell Dimension 5150 if that makes any difference? Could anyone tell me how I can find out for sure?
Thanks a lot for your help.
