almost all MiniDV camcorders capture video via IEEE1394 ("Firewire"), 
its the standard for the DV format.   The ones that have USB, that port 
is generally used only for still photo.

DVD camcorders and hard disk camcorders use higher levels of compression 
that aren't as suitable for editing as DV, however, they are less likely 
to use IEEE1394.

Myself, I use Sony Vegas ($$$) on a Windows XP platform for video 
capture and editing, this works extremely well and produces very high 
quality results.
