If you mean from a camcorder, Firewire.
Yeah, I meant video off a camcorder (MiniDV)
USB 2.0 can transfer data up to 480Mbps.
Firewire can go up to 400Mbps.
Either way is good.
In theory, yes. In reality, Firewire is faster.
USB is one of the worst technologies ever created (IMO).
lmao! I wouldn't go that far..lol
I often get better speeds with USB2, but the problem I run into is the connection/speed isn't as stable as with Firewire.
USB is one of the greatest inventions in the PC world, but i agree firewire is much faster for transfering files.
So what do you think is better for connecting mice, keyboards, card readers, webcams, etc. etc. etc.?
PS2, serial, firewire, parallel port. The problem with USB is that every device on it needs some sort of driver that takes up way more CPU than it should. I have a USB mouse, but I attach it though a USB->PS2 adapter because I don't want my CPU being wasted on mouse drivers when it could be doing more important things.
Yeah, but how much is a mouse really taking out of your CPU?
Not a whole lot, but it should be taking essentially none.
