Well, it depends on the application, a few minutes of googling turned
up this, It would be interesting to know if this is transparent and
will work with Linux or requires a special driver::
A new USB video cable from Pixela allows you to transfer raw DV from a
FireWire camcorder to a typical Hi-Speed USB host desktop or notebook,
and vice versa.
This bridge cable, designated PIX-UVCD/U1W, is handy for those who do
not have a FireWire port on their PCs. Transferring video back to the
camcorder will require Service Pack 2, which supports driverless
installation of devices that comply with USB Video Device Class 1.0.
Pixela recommends a 64MB or higher video card and 15GB hard drive space
for video editing with ImageMixer 2.0. The PIX-UVCD/U1W will ship in
early July for 9500 Yen or around $86 USD.
