    you need a firewire port on your computer and the appropriate cable (firewire plugs are 4 pin or 6 pin) you then need an application that will allow you to "capture" your video. There are thousands of programs that will do this and allow you to edit the captured video. If you have a PC windows movie maker comes as standard and will work nicely, if you run a mac (the mac will already have a firewire port) it comes with I movie. both programs are fairly self explanatory, but feel free to ask if you have any questions.
