Panasonic AG-DVX100A How To Get Footage Off The Mini DV Tapes?

I was recently given a Panasonic AG-DVX100A and I am unsure how to get the footage off my camera. I know I need a firewire cable to get it off, but my computer doesn't have a firewire port. How would I get it off or is there an external firewire port I can buy? I don't know jack about adding a firewire card to my computer, so I am hoping there are other options. Serious answers please. Thank you!

Do not waste your money on firewire to USB,you may bedisappointed if you do. Get a firewire card and have it fitted. Your computer shop should fit it for small charge if needed. If you have lap top you can get a firewire express card that should do the job.
