    I wish to copy the video from my Canon MV850I Mini DV camcorder to my Toshiba XS 32 for editing and copying to DVD.
    I thought a simple 4 pin firewire cable was all that is required to connect the DV sockets but I have been told that I require a special DV cable costing about £25. Have I been misinformed by the salesman.

    I believe you just need a 4 pin to 4 pin firewire cable. A typical firewire cable for computers is usually 4 pin to 6 pin.
