    Question Mark

    I have a PV-GS150 Camcorder with USB 2 out and IEEE 1394/firewire out
    what would be the best way to send the DV to my computer. Most capturing software will let me use USB2 but WINDV will only use the DV out pin on my camcorder.

    any thoughts?

    well I don't have a firewire port on my computer
    so I wanted to see if it is worth buying a firewire PCI card

    Firewire if possible. It's faster, and allows you to control your camera via the software's controls.
