USB Question

by akohut / March 22, 2006 7:33 AM PST

My original usb cable for my pvgs150 was misplaced, so I used a smaller, thinner cable for transferring video onto my computer. There was a large difference in video quality when transferring video, when compared to other video that I have transferred. Is this because of the USB cable's quality or caused by something else.
(I had my camera in wide screen settings at the time, with wide angle lens on it, could that be part of the problem?)

You didn't tell what cable you did use. However the repeating lesson is that you use Firewire and software that uses Firewire.

It was a small USB 2.0 cable
