Hello I have a pro Gy DV300 3ccd camcorder. It is a Mini DV format with Fire wire.
can anyone tell me if I can use the firewire to record directly to a firewire port on a laptop instead of tape

Yes I did. it mentions an add on plate to use SD card slot. But even then Its not clear if this is a data store or a video record option. Can anyone clarify?

Assuming the "add on plate" to which you refer is the JVC KA-DV300:
it allows for IP network connectivity and use of a CF (Compact Flash) memory card - not SD memory. See page 16.

And yes, pretty much any camcorder with a a working fire port can have its video recorded directly by a computer over firewire... assuming the computer has a working firewire port... Though it may depend on the computer and the video editor as to whether this will work reliably.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
