You can always add a cheap firewire controller to your computer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... m 0 l kenrivers a c 163 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. m 0 l Related resources Error in HD video file (MKV) while transferring to external HD via USB - Forum Transfering files from old to new via HD - Forum BSOD when booting After transfering SATA HD to new motherboard - Forum Transfering HD with Windows on it, steps? - Forum Software outdated for transfering videos - Forum Can't find your answer ?
