    HI-

    I need some serious help!

    I have a Sony handycam DCR-TRV11 (i think from 2001 or something)
    All my home videos are on these miniDV's.

    I now have a Macbook that I want to put these movies on & make dvd's.

    My macbook has a 6 pin firewire port, but obviously, my handycam doesn't.

    What do I need to bridge these 2 to work?

    any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    I have been using a handy cam for years - these cables are available at most Radio Shacks. iMovie will download the clips for you so you don't need any of the Sony software.
