    I have a panasonic pv dv201D camcorder. I am looking to transfer the video to my pc. I have an imac with a firewire port and a PC with USB.

    Would the best way to achieve this be to get a DV to Firewire cable and copy to the mac?

    Is there any other hardware or software I would need?

    Thanks for your help

    Yes that should work, if you have iMovie you can use that to edit etc.
