    All right you experts out there i gots a problem with my new Sony Digital
    Handycam DCR TRV350.
    Ok here it is! The thing makes beautiful videos but when i transfer them to
    my computer the quality aint nearly as good when i play them back. I use an
    USB cable between camera and puter, and it aint USB 2 ! Now the camera
    has is IEEE 1394 (firewire) capable, but my puter don't have that. Although
    i could get a firewire card.

    So i am wondering if that is why i get a reduction in video quality because
    i am using an old USB connection?????

    Book that comes with the camera don't say anything about USB verses
    Firewire. Don't even say if i need USB 2 .

    What i is wanting to do is transfer the videos from my camera to CD and
    eventually to DVD when i get a burner.

    Any Ideas

    Don't know how USB transfers, but you're best bet is firewire. That will
    transfer digital 720x480 (NTSC).

    The USB is most likely your problem. USB (not 2.0) does not transfer fast
    enough to capture the video how it was recorded. Get a firewire card,
    recapture, and you should get your desired results.
