You won't be able to do it with just a USB cable You will need an analog-to-digital video converter which will take the analog video signal from the Camcorder, and translate it to a digital signal for the computer via the USB interface.

Startech, Dazzle and Roxio are three brands


Your iLink port is a Firewire interface, so if you have an older Macintosh computer with firewire, you may be able to go from the camera directly to the Mac with the appropriate 4 pin to 6 pin or 4 pin to 9 pin Firewire cable

Your best bet will be to find someone to transfer the tapes to DVD for you.
