It seems as it doesn't do what you want by using USB cable. As, you can read from this Elura 65 Features page, you can transfer only short movies.

With the Elura's improved Motion JPEG feature, you can record short movie clips in 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 for the full length of the SD Memory Card. Afterwards, quickly transfer your mini movie to a computer and attach it to an e-mail or post it on the web.

But what's the problem for an 1394 add-on card ? I see Firewire 400 PCI cards in the range of 12-20 USD and Firewire 800 PCI 32 (or 64) cards. Here's one Firewire 800 PCI-32T example.

Good Luck,


Trying to unweave, unwind, unravel
And piece together the past and the future,
