Thank You Retired Chief,
That's right - I'm looking at those type of connectors - if they'd work.
they are cheap, but before I try them,
I'm curious if anyone has tried them before - specifically with DV camcorders,
because I don't want to damage an expensive camera with a cheap little connector.
I'm pretty sure the signal and power coming from a USB port is different from an ieee1394 port.
Do you have any experience with the USB ->Firewire connectors you mentioned above?
I have not seen or found any other options yet though.
