I have a gateway laptop with no firewire port and a sony dc38 camcorder with mini dv cassette. for 6 months i've been trying to find a way to upload videos. gaeway was no help. Bestbuy sold me "dazzle" but only uploads to their video editing software "pinnacle". I want to upload to my software. I also used "roxio" but same thing. What can I do or use. I'm so frustrated. i feel like I either have to buy a new camcorder with a card or a new laptop with a firewire port.
