    I have a company laptop that does not have firewire connection. The IT is
    thinking about purchasing a USB to firewire converter for transfer DV to
    PC. I'm concerned that it may not work as smoothly as a firewire card. Does
    anyone have experience using USB to firewire converter?

    Thanks for the help,

    Suggest first researching whether they even exist.

    If you Google, you will find lots of PCI cards and PCMCIA
    "PC-cards" (for laptops) which have both Firewire and USB,
    but I've never heard of a Firewire to USB converter, and none
    appeard in the top-20 hits on Google.
