    There is no port (IEEE1394 or FireWire) on this computer.
    Yes you can get one. You have to purchase a card with this port on it and
    install the card in the computer. If this computer is running under Windows
    XP installing the card is rather simple and XP will recognize the card "plug
    and play" and you can then connect your camcorder, start Movie Maker 2 (part
    of XP) and capture the video to your hard drive. Be aware that capturing
    video is "memory expensive". One hour of video needs 13 GB of hard drive
    space.
    The new cards have both IEEE1394 and USB2 ports on them, so you would be
    getting USB ports convenience at the same time.
    Your computer is old (in the digital world everything is old or senile very
    quickly, no offense) so you have to make a decision if you want to invest in
    a new card (probably about $75.00 now) to download video.
    If you are on XP, I would give it a go, provided that you have at least 256
    MB of RAM memory (you may have only 128, if so forget working with video).
    You would learn the basics of video capture and editing with Movie Maker 2.
    It will be a bit slow, but it will work. If you are not on XP and you have
    less than 256 MB of RAM I would say enjoy playing the video to your TV.

    dear
    Yves Alarie rd50@@pitt.edu,
    why you answer the same "tip" to anyone wich have problem with IEEE
    connection?
    if camcoder is not recognized by OS, it's silly to check if MovieMAked
    does...
    ;-)

    Because it works.
    If it did not work for you all you have to do is answer, "sorry I tried your
    suggestion but it did not work, can you help further".
