    Hi all,

    G/fs looking at getting a new camcorder but they all seem to use firewire to upload the recorded footage onto a PC, problem is, hers hasnt got firewire.

    Being an older PC (1.2 Athlon) i am unsure of the mobo make/model. Is there anyway to add firewire to a PC or does it need a mobo with a firewire connection. Dont really want to have to upgrade it just yet as it just isnt worth it!!

    It may be a daft question but ive no experience of firewire, ive even got it on my new PC but never bothered setting it up! :) And no, she cant use mine and then tranfer it across, she has a habit of breaking it!!
