I read that the firewire is a 'no loss' connection and therefore preferable to the usb - so is it possible to connect a firewire cable to a mini usb point on a camcorder to enable a firewire link to the pc? Would one fit? Perhaps someone else has done this - or tried it at least? If not - is there such a thing as an adapter for conversion to firewire that plugs into the usb point on the cameras? I am suffering terribly with the transfer of film via the usb...
