I found this thread via Google search and I’m trying to see if there are any updates/news about this. I have this exact problem. I just had to replace my laptop with a new Toshiba Satellite P755-S5390 and it doesn’t have a firewire port. My old laptop could use an ExpressCard to connect my DV camera to it via firewire, but this Toshiba doesn’t have ExpressCard/PCMCIA capability either.
Does that Ethernet connect work at all, anyone know? Or are there any other viable options to connect my DV camera via firewire to my new laptop? As far as I understand from reading up, the firewire-to-USB adapters do not work for DV transfer.
The new Toshiba also has a USB 3.0 and a HDMI port, but I don’t know if those would do any good right now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
