    Sorry - i've looked for this but cant find it.

    I want to transfer my mini DV camcorder tapes to the HD of the tosh to edit / burn.

    Can someone point me to the cables i need to connect them together?

    Thanks (and apologies - im new to all this)

    I had a Toshiba briefly for a week, but now I have a Pioneer. I went to record my minidv tapes to the hard drive and realized the recorder uses a different firewire than for a PC. The recorder in/out is the same size as the camera's in/out. If the Toshiba is the same, then you would need a 4 pin to 4 pin firewire cable. The typical PC firewire cable is 4 pin to 6 pin.

    Hope this helps.

    You should be able to look at it and compare it with the in/out on the camcorder. Maybe google images of 4 pin firewire and 6 pin firewire and compare that way - that's what I did to find out what cable I needed.
