I'm getting a vx1 in a few days from my cousin and I don't have a firewire port in my computer to capture from. It also doesn't seem to have ports for a firewire card. I've heard all around the internet that firewire to USB cables don't work; is there anything I can do other than get a different computer? If it helps I have a Dell Inspiron N4030.

Don't capture from your VX, you're essentially cutting the heads lifespan in half.

You can take out a useless PCI card and replace it with a Firewire card. (I can't imagine all the PCI slots being used)
Or there are some cameras that can capture from USB, I'm not sure what they are, but I do know they exist. They aren't as good as their firewire counterparts though.
