You can always add a cheap firewire controller to your computer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... kenrivers a c 110 G Storage September 6, 2012 9:22:13 PM Hawkeye22 is right. An external drive connected to the camera after the fact will not help. As an owner of an HDR-HC1 I can back Hawkeye22 up and say that a firewire capture card is your best option.
