I need to capture some video footage, however, I don't have a firewire port on my laptop. So i found this product online and it looks like it can do the job for me since i do have the usb ports. Here is a link to the product (its on ebay) and my camera. Can you tell me if it will work for me.

can you guys tell me if this ebay thing will help me. It looks right to me but i would like some professional opinions.

Also, here is a link to the camera im using.
Sony Handycam DCR HC30 : Read reviews and compare prices at Ciao.co.uk

So, can someone tell me if it will work. Also, tell me if there may be any problems. All i can think of is that capturing the video will take a long time because of the usb.
