    If you have a DV camera, I'd ALWAYS recommend using firewire.

    From the FAQ:
    How should I capture? DV, USB, or S-video?

    Capturing via DV (aka I1994, ilink or Firewire) is a lossless process - the video transferred from your camcorder is an identical copy of the original. This is possible due to Firewire permitting fast data transfer rates - faster than the rates USB allows. If you capture via S-video (or indeed USB), you'll necesarily see a reduction in the quality of your captured video, so always opt for the DV option if available

    A firewire connection also enables remote control of camcorder functions via the PC.

    What capture card should I buy?

    Remember that all Firewire cards are created equal. A bog standard firewire card is less than $25/25 and combined with video capture software, will enable DV capture from your camcorder.

    That's not what I have asked.

    I have access to USB2 and firewire at work but I'm SPECIFICALLY asking about USB !
