Thread: DV in lead

    Default DV in lead

    Could someone please advise what lead to use to transfer from a mini DV camera with a DV out port to a DVD recorder with a DV in port? I can't seem to find any lead that will fit both the camera and the DVD recorder. I thought it would be a simple matter of a getting a DV lead - am I mistaken?

    Most DV cameras have a 4 pin firewire card. If your DVD recorder's DV IN socket is the same size as your DV Cam then a 4 pin to 4 pin DV lead is required. If your DVD Recorder's DV IN port is larger then a 4 pin to 6 pin DV cable is required.

    Just do a google and you will find plenty of suppliers.

    Good luck
    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
