    Default Firewire and HPs...HELP

    So my old laptop has a firewire connection but my new one doesn't. My laptop is a hp G7-1310us. How do I get my videos from my camera to my laptop?

    Know someone with a computer that has an FW port?
    Does your laptop have a PC-card slot?

    I still have my old laptop but it's on it's death bed and my new laptop does not have a PC-card slot. I'm ticked! My camera is not that old and it was state of the art when I got it. What a joke! I can't find a solution out there that seems to work. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are several ways:
    - Get a camera without Firewire
    - Look for someone with a FW equipped computer
    - Look for a new laptop

    Or: capture from HDMI or component port with dedicated equipment. Blackmagic and Hauppauge have such devices.
