Help required if possible. I have an old Panasonic nv-ds30 camcorder, I'm trying to figure out how to transfer files from the camcorder to my laptop. Has anyone got any ideas. I have posted a picture of connections, many thanks in advance. 20210521_202304.jpg


You have a miniDV camcorder and the only way to capture full quality from it is using Firewire (aka iLink, ieee1394, DV port) which is very rare on laptops, especially any made within the past 5+ years. Therefore the analogue output is the only option, plug that into a USB capture device that will plug into the laptop.
