There is no such thing as a firewire to usb or usb to firewire converter. You may see advertised as such but these are misleading.
You can find digital/analog converts like the Canopus ADVC100 which can take your firewire output from your camera and convert it to analog.
If you go analog from your camera to computer, then your video quality is dependent on how good your camera’s video hardware is. If you go firewire to a digital/analog converter, then your video quality should be fine.
Just my two cents, hope this helps
