Q: I have a Sony Handycam and it is a few years old. I want to upload the videos to my PC and wondering if I should get a firewire cable and which one do you recommend?

    I suggest the cheapest one you can find. Since it’s all digital data you don’t have to worry about signal loss from junk cables like you did in the old days.

    You can get a firewire cable from http://www.monoprice.com for $2. BestBuy will probably charge you $40 for the exact same thing.
