    That camcorder is a Mini DV model (small tape) so you need to get a Firewire cable to connect it to your computer. The cable has a 4 pin plug at one end and a 6 pin plug at the other end. The 4 pin plug goes into the camcorder and the 6 pin plug goes into a Firewire socket on your computer. Do you have Firewire on your computer?

    You should be able to pick up a PCI Firewire card with three external sockets on it, if you are not near a computer store (Jessops, Curry's or PC World in the UK) then do a search on Google for one. You will need a spare PCI slot inside your computer (desktop model). A metal plate covering the slot at the back of the computer usually near the bottom will also have to be removed to allow the connections to come out. It usually takes about 5 minutes to do and you just switch on the computer again, it will boot up and pick up the card so there is no software to install. Make sure the card is firmly seated in the PCI slot.

    It uses a standard Windows driver to recognise the new card you inserted. In the Device Manager you should see IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers, this tells you that the card is inserted correctly and is working properly. All you need to do then is connect the camcorder (switched off) to the 4 pin plug and the 6 pin end to any one of the three sockets of your new card. Switch the camcorder on, switch it to playback or VCR mode and Windows should pick it up.
