Hello everyone,

I am accustomed to using Firewire to connect my Sony Handycam HDR-HC7 camcorder to my (Mac) laptop computer, but right now need to connect to a Windows 7-based P.C. It has no Firewire port--only USBs! (From what I can see). What can I do?? Which cables, etc., are needed?

Please advise, and thank you.

Chad

The USB port on this camera is only designed to transfer photos. If it were possible to transfer video, then the quality would be diminished.

You need to get a Firewire port on your PC if you want to transfer your video to your computer. Search on Amazon for "firewire card pci" - I found one for under $5
