I far as I can see this doesn't have a Sony Smart Card in it so the only way to get something on you computer is to have a video in card and do a screen capture. You should be able to find a video in card for less than $50. Check this out. http://www.unbeatable.com/products/c...yccdtrv308.asp
At the very bottom of the page is the video editing bundle for $69.00 you would probably still need a Firewire Card which is the same as the iLink, Sony just renamed it because they don't like using other company'* brand names.
