I have an old Panansonic mini dv NV-DS99B camcorder which I am trying to connect to my laptop to rescue old footage and use for my golf etc. I have purchased a 4 pin firewire to USB lead (laptop does not have firewire port)which once connected states device not regonised. I have lost the original CD which I presumed contained the driver though I suppose it would be useless now as it would be Windows 95 and I'm on XP. I have failed to find a driver on the internet. Is there anyway around my problem or is my old piece of kit rendered useless. I have read about capture cards etc but need to know I'm going in the right direction. Any help is much apprecaited.
