It's a well known fact that Firewire should be used to connect a Mini-Dv camcorder to a PC for video transfer in order to preserve quality. I've read a number fo posts in these forums where the first reply is of the form 'use a firewire ratehr than USB'.
I use firewire myself to conenct my Sony DCR-TRV33 but was just wondering if the saem rule-of-thumb applied to a USB2 connection.
Has anyone tried video transfer through a USB2 connection? What are the results?
I'm just curious because USB2 is actually faster than firewire so there should be no degradation in quality.
Perhaps it's just that the the USB port at the camera end is ty[ically USB1.1 (intended for still transfer typically) and not USB2.
