Hi It's my first post, your advice is welcome. I recently bought a laptop running windows 7 which I use to capture video from flash media without problem. However I'd like to use my old mini dv camcorder from time to time but the laptop has no firewire , s-video or analogue ports. Can you suggest a solution? Would a Pinnacle Studio Plus 700 USB for example be suitable? Or is there a simple way to connect my mini dv camcorder to my laptop?
