Sony HandyCam need advice and support to get footage to Laptop on window 7 64 bi

I have a sony handy cam purchased in 2008 costingaround £700 and want to get the footage from the mini dv tapes, I believe that this can only be done by firewire (i link). I do not have a fire wire port on my HP laptop which runs windows 7 64 bit. I tried a firewire to USB cable but the port is not recongised, I have a firewire port on my DVD recorder but the camcorder does not register as being connected. SO what can I do? Is there something I can do to get the USB port to work? Does the EasyCap capture work? Thank you if you can help.

  1. Yes, if you use a capture device you can connect the USB from the capture device to the computer.

    Handycam ---> Capture Device ---> Computer (via USB)
