yea. you should be able to put the tape into a cheaper camcorder with no quality loss. Also, try looking for a used HDV deck, that is, if you will trust the previous user. Seems you may have been screwed with your purchase of this used camera.
I’ve read that the reason why Firewire ports can burn out like yours did is because of the sudden jolt of electricity that goes to the port once you plug it in. The port could also burn out on your computer. So the best thing to do is plug in your camcorder and turn it on while the computer is off. Then don’t turn off your camcorder that your using as a deck…ever.
I have a miniDV deck connected to my computer and I never turn it off.
