    I am not a professional, but I do a lot of home editing of vacations, family events and such. I decided that using my camcorder as a deck is not in it's best interests. I purchased the DV-700.

    I am on a Mac and do my editing in FinalCutPro. I was rather dismayed when I discovered that the 700 had no Firewire connection. I tried the USB but FCP will not recognize it. My question is simple. How do I connect the 700 to my Mac?

    I have both 400 and 800 Firewire available. I have looked for adapters with no luck.

    Thank you

    The Sony GV-D700 is a MiniDV player that connects by Firewire, same as a MiniDV camcorder.

    There is also an HDV/DV GVH-D700.

    Sony calls the Firewire port DV iLink. You will find it on the back or behind the door on the right side.

    Here's a link to the unit.

    thanks - it's firewire.

    i.LINK DV In/Out (IEEE 1394) enables editing or dubbing between another Digital camcorder, VCR or computer equipped with DV Capture Card, with virtually no generation loss.

    Meanie,

    I'm between a rock and a hard place. I'm staring at the back of the unit and it has ONE output port. Mini USB. Yet the specs say there are two.

    The port is on the side behind the door.
