"Hm, there are many websites on the internet that discuss this issue and say otherwise." SafeHabor is perfectly right, that 1 hour of DV quality video takes up to 13 GB of HD space. He's also right that you need FireWire hardware to capture video from MiniDV. It is not possible to capture DV via USB, as much as I know. I don't know what websites you are referring to that say otherwise. But I'll be very glad to know, if you'll kindly provide the links. In the meantime, try and find a Firewire card/board that you can insert into your PCI slot to do the job. Try hard. Someone near you may have the right resources that you can borrow. Good luck. … And, btw, where do you live? Just curious.
