Firewire or USB

Do I need firewire to transfer footage from a digital camcorder to my pc, or can I use the USB port.

Firewire is the normal method for transferring footage from camcorder to pc. If the camcorder also has a USB connector it is probably to allow still images to be transferred or to use the camcorder as a webcam.

If the connection on your camcorder is frewire (and it almost certainly is), then to transfer to your pc you need a firewire port. You may be able to get a usb to firewire converter, even if you can it may not give the best results.
