😕 I’ve a Mac G5 with digital optical ports. I’m wondering what the best way is to get miniDV tape onto the HD for use in Final Cut Pro and eventual export to the web as WMV? I do not have a DV player, but have Cleaner for compression and export. I don’t want a loss of quality from the tape to the HD.
Use the firewire port on either the front or the back of the computer. Connect it to the firewire port on your dv camera. You will probably need a 6pin to 4pin cable.
