Not sure whether this is a 'basic' question or not so, for starters, I placed it in the Noob section!!
I have a few home DV camcorder tapes that I need to transfer to DVD to pass to family members.
Unfortunately, my laptop, although a decent spec' (Compaq Presario) it doesn't have a firewire port.
I have tried using USB but the video quality is very poor and nowhere near DVD quality.
Is there any type of cable/device whereby I can connect my camcorder to the laptop and transfer at high quality, as good as firewire?
I do not have a PCMCIA slot so further 'expansion' is not an option.
Thanks in anticipation.
