Ok i have been looking at this problem for almost a year now. I have a JVC GR-D77OU MINI-DV camcorder and Windows 7 2010 Gateway NV53a laptop.I need to transfer video from my camcorder to my laptop but my laptop has no firewire port.
So her are my questions:
1.What do i need to have a fire-wire port on my laptop?
I have been told “You need a PCI card,oh that wont work you need a PCIMA card, oh that wont work either, oh you need a fire-wire bus card, oh that wont work either” i guess because of my laptop cant use any of those?
2.Can i use one of those options ^^^?
- This is my last option, is it possible if i can get an external express card and a fire wire card bus? because i heard external express card don’t work with fire wire? I would also like links please???
