I have a Sony Digital8 camera DCR-TRV120E with an USB cable. So far I`ve had 366 MHz PII that was too weak for downloading from the camera. Now a friend offered to give me PIII, 800 MHz, 20 GB, 256 RAM with Windows XP installed. It`s a very good bargain and I`d accept it but I wanted to ask, if I take it, will I be able to use the camera with it? I was thinking about working in Adobe Premiere... Also, is there a way to compress the video while downloading it? And once compressed, it editing still possible? When I downloaded the video to my dad`s P4 it took 7 GB of space for 15 minutes of material in mpeg format...and the tape is approximately 45 minutes long. There`s no way that I will be able to download it all at once. Thanks in advance!
