Hi
I am a novice to the subject. I have a laptop with USB2 but not firewire. I would like to do some editing of video on it, but my camera only has firewire. Does anybody know if there is an adapter that I could buy?
Thanks

Yes, they are common, but forget USB to Firewire, you would need a PCMCIA firewire card like this one (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/3f94897a0a64b160273fc0a87f990779/Product/View/XH6741)

You laptop will have a slot in the side for this, provided you are not using it for something else.

"Firewire" is a common name for the IEEE1394 compliant interface, in case the lack of the word in this ad confuses.
