DVCAM is going to require Firewire. If you have the ability to add a PCMCIA or ExpressCard expansion card to your laptop, find one that will give you Firewire 400 connections. This will be what you need to interface with your DVCAM deck. These cards are cheap and can be found on Amazon, eBay, B&H, or just about anywhere.
