the author writes: The idea for this hack came from articles circling the internet about a homemade cable that allows you to transfer data from your “one time use” CVS Digital Camcorder to computer, effectively making it a fully functional digital camcorder. Well, I decided to take a step further for a couple of reasons. One, I didn’t own or have access to a Palm m100 or Palm III cable (and no store in town sells the outdated cables) that I could hack apart. Two, I didn’t want to have to lug a butchered cable around with me if I wanted to connect my camera to my laptop or another computer. So, I decided to add a USB port to my CVS Cam.
