Capture old DV cams

Recommended Posts

I have a few DV cam tapes that I need to capture. The output is  DV (FireWire 4 pin) but I don't have access to a FireWire card in my machine. Any idea how I can capture it? FireWire to USB adapter doesn't exist because it can't transfer the video signal all the way through.

If you have older mac with FW800 and get FW400 to FW800 cable then that should work.

Software is another tricky bit.
