You don’t specify what com


You don’t specify what comcarder you have, but it sounds like all it has is a USB port, not a firewire port. If that’s the case you only have 2 options: 1) Buy a new camera (which is probably not a good option for you) or 2) Buy an analog video converter. The Canupus ADVC100 or 110 should be a good option for you. B&H has it for around $100 bucks. It comes with all the drivers and cables you need. Their site is That adapter will allow you to connect your camcorder using the regular audio/video cables as if you were sending the video to your TV and then convert it to DV video, which you can then edit using your editing program. I hope that helps.
