    Firewire is the only way you should capture your video to your computer, and you should capture as an .avi file. It will take up a lot of hard drive space, but that is the only way you are going to get uncompressed video.

    You don't need a capture card, just a good firewire cable (not a cheap one) and a firewire port on your computer.

    I haven't ever used Ulead, but I would think that it will see your camcorder.

    Pinnacle 10 is a great program to manage anything you would like to do with home movie cameras (not free)
