    You will want to use a Firewire cable. (The camera didn't come with one?)

    My camera didn't come with a FireWire cable, but that was 3 years ago. And I knew nothing about digital video....so it drove me nuts trying to get video to the computer via USB.

    If you have a type of flash media for digital still pictures, the USB might be for that.

    It'll be pretty painful using the USB cable. Try it if you want to appreciate the Firewire that much more.

    Is it really $40 for a cable? That seems high.
