    I have a Samsung SCD103 camcorder that broke a few years ago, such that we can still play back but not record. My question is this: I want to know how I can load the videos from several miniDV tapes onto my computer using the camcorder. It has a IEEE 1394 jack on the camcorder. My PC does not have the IEEE 1394 card as suggested in the manual. DO I need to buy the card or can I use a cable with the jack? What kind of cable should I look for and how can I know it will fit my camcorder and work with my Windows XP 2002 computer?

    THANKS!

    firewire 400 card and cable. not much to check other than the number of pins match. cams normally have 4 pins. cards normally have a 6 pin port. so a 4 pin to 6 pin cable in normally used. xp has drivers for firewire. sp3 recommended.
