No can do.

I don't know if you need the 4 to 4 pin or the 4 to 6 pin cable for your PC or Mac.

In short, you should hook up with firewire. Cards and cables are over at aplenty.

I have the ZR90 and hook the supplied cable to:

DVC90 is an external Hi-Speed USB video transfer connector which easily connects to a desktop or laptop PC. (actually plugs right in to your USB port)

Its sold by pinnacle and I think it comes with the basic Studio software.
