    Is there any form of device or adaptor I can buy to integrate my DV Camcorder with my iBook and transfer my video clips?? My Camcorder has no firewire socket and it's killing me..

    Thanks..

    All DV cameras have firewire. The fw port is usually the 4-pin variety that doesn't carry any power. You can buy 4-pin to 6-pin adaptors for it.

    They have adapters and cables. The adapters connect to a 6-pin wire and make one end 4-pin. There are also cables with 4-pin on one end and 6-pin on the other. Either way will work.
