I have a Sony DCR-HC28 and am trying to transfer information from a midi-DV tape to a laptop. What method would you recommend for the transfer? I originally looked at a firewire to USB adapter, but have not seen one that was reviewed as successful anywhere.

Is this the right method to use, and is there are cheaper or better method?

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer.
