Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

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. So currently I am looking at the Dynex Firewire 800 ExpressCard Adapter with a standard 400-800 Firewire cable. This will cost about $60-70 for both parts. Is this the right method to use, and is there are cheaper or better method?

\015\012You have to use Fire Wire to get the image off the DV tape. So I ran up to Worst Buy to get a fire wire card and cable. Cheapest I could get was $80 plus tax. I refused to do and and orderd from newegg.com for $42 total with 2 day shipping. Why does anyone buy from local shops anymore?

\015\012This is the right method, and ordering the firewire card and cable online might save you a few bucks.

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert
