    Hi Paul,

    You will need a firewire card installed in the PC. An external hard drive with a firewire port will not help as this will also be a firewired "device", like the camera, which would need to be connected to a PC.
    Unfortunately it does not appear that your All-In-one is upgradable.

    I fear you may have to resolve this by getting a cheap PC (a second hand one?) and installing a firewiire card (about 15) and using this just for capturing.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
