  1. I don't think that will work. You can always add a cheap firewire controller to your computer.

  2. 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.
