Mike, welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!
Somewhere towards the front underside of the camcorder you will see a tiny rubber plug. This rubber plug is the protective shield for the firewire port. It is not very obvious, and you have to look carefully.
Thank you so much. Found it! Now that I have it connected, now what? Do I need software or a driver installed to complete the upload? What type of file should I be expecting to be created, AVI?
