I've just bought a new Dell computer which has firewire installed along with MovieMaker2. I've also bought a camcorder (Panasonic NVGS400b). I am able to capture video from the camcorder, but the quality on the LCD screen seems to be a lot better than the image on the PC once I've downloaded it. I've very confused about Firewire and USB. The camcorder lead is called USB and the socket it fits into on the front of the PC has a kind of fork symbol (please excuse my ignorance, I'm new to this game!) - I suspect this must be a USB point and not the firewire - but it fits. Capturing video has to be done in real time, which is slow and laborious. Should I have another port for Firewire and hence a different lead for the camcorder? I hope that makes sense!
