Hi I realise this has been aksed before but I am actually at the beginning stage where I have my camcorder, my laptop and recetnly purchased cable and I dont know what to do first!
Camcorder: Sony Mini DV Camcorder DCR - HC35
Laptop: Compaq CQ60 - 216TU with Windows Vista
Recently purchased cable: USB to IEEE 1394 4 PIN FIREWIRE TRAVEL Adapter CABLE 5f
I have already established that my compuer does not have a firewire card or a pcmcia slot hence the Travel adaptor (as my last resort)
Can you please tell me I need to do next? Considering I have vista what is the best programme to try and download/edit my videos with? I am not the most technically minded person therefore any helps would be greatly appreciated!
