I have a few older camcorders that use FireWire cables to connect to a PC. In the past, before Windows 10 and older versions of Vegas, I didn't have any issues connecting and encoding/transferring videos from older tapes. Windows 10 and new PC's don't play nice with FireWire cards, as I have learned from personal experience and posts on forums.
So is there another way to connect an old camcorder with a FireWire cable to my brand new PC with Windows 10 so that I can import old tapes? For example, I see FireWire to USB converters on Amazon (https://amzn.to/2J9upvL), but wish to know if Vegas Pro will be able to recognize the source when using one of these? Anyone have any experience with this please?
Again, the goal is to encode dozens of old MinDV tapes.
