    Default PLEASE HELP!!! ASAP!! PLZZZ

    Hello everyone,

    i hope someone can help me. I just filmed my sister's engagment party and it looks gr8!!! but i have an analog camera (Sony HandyCam DCR-TRV140 NTSC) and it supportys usb mini usb to usb. i did that before the quality was VERY TERRIBLE! i thought about Firewire. i did sum re-search but i couldn't find out if there is such thing from mini usb to Firewire. One side firewire other side mini usb that connects to the cameria...(werid look shape). So i am think of getting Firewire PCI card. but i want to know if there is such thing does the firewire cable have that mini usb port? they look alike. Please someone HELP ME PLEASE ASAP Also it supports S-Video the camera and my Video Card would that work also would Adobe Premiere Pro detect it or wut? Thx A lot!

    It means it's digital, and you can use firewire.

    Hooray!

    Oh my god, calm down! Get down off the ceiling, and don't touch another drop of Sunny D.

    You need:

    - A firewire cable (more on this later)
    - A firewire card or socket, (which may or may not be built in to your PC)
    - software that can capture from a DV camera (take your pick)

    And there you go.

    As for the cable, there are two different kinds of firewire cable. There's 4 pin, which is the one on your camera, and there's also 6 pin, which looks like this:

    So when you order the cable, you need 4 pin on one end, and, depending on whether you have a 4 pin or 6 pin on your computer, you need that connector on the other.

    If you don't have a firewire card, you need one, which if you're from the US (which i think you might be?) you can get one from www.newegg.com (do a search for "firewire card")

    Aaaaaand breeeeeeathe.

    Good luck

    The quality of your footage should be a lot better yes, a lot less jerkier.

    Editing program? Probably Adobe Premiere Elements.

    Have fun!
