If you have a camera that is based on the MiniDV format that you almost undoubtly have a Firewire(i.Link, IEEE1394, etc) on the camera that will allow you to do direct DV transfers. If it only provides a composite/SVideo out then you'll need to get something to convert the analog video to digital, Hauppauge provides a low-end/low-cost solution for $50. They're is probably some better solutions, but none that I know of.

Its a pc. My camera doesnt have a firewire out, just a single a/v.

JasonL, I cant really tell what kind of ports that tv wonder has. But do you think it will work for me? And also, is that whats in the picture the only thing that comes with it? I have a laptop and so I cant use a card.

THanks for your help
