    Can I import DV footage via DVD?

    davemill
      I just received a brand new high-end laptop (4GB RAM, 2GHZ dual core processor, 320GB disk). Unfortunately, it does not have a Firewire port. (What were they thinking?!?)

      So here's the question: I own Premiere Pro CS3. I need to edit footage from digital video camcorders that record to mini-dv tape. I normally import this footage via firewire...you see the problem.

      Two questions:

      1. Can I import mini-DV footage from another machine using a DVD-R?

      2. Will I be able to capture that footage using MovieMaker on another machine, or will it be necessary to install Premiere there as well? (I know this is not a MovieMaker forum, but I figured I'd ask).

      Thanks!
