I am bummed that it is impossible to find laptops with firewire inputs, and I have a huge catalog of miniDV tapes along with some life left in my HDV tape-based camcorders. Sooner or later, I'll have to replace my computers. Has anyone had experience with the Datavideo DN-60 Digital CF Card Recorder which has a firewire input or similar devices? These capture HDV or DV video without a computer and the files can be transferred without firewire. I have also seen some devices that have legacy firewire and input the computer via Thunderbolt 3 but they are not windows compatible.
