I got a panasonic NV-GS180 NV-GS180 3CCD DV Camcorder with 2.3 MP still capability [NV-GS180] - Panasonic Australia

I have never really done much editing on my pc with the camera due to lack of hardrive space. I however just upgraded my pc and installed win7 64 bit. I have contacted panasonic who says that the camera does not support win7. The camera has a USB and a firewire connection. I cant transfer anything else but stills using the USB port. My PC does not have a firewire port.

My question is: If i Install a pci-firewire port on my pc, will i then be able to transfer video from the camera regardless that i do not have a driver or is firewire still driver dependant?
