If you have a desktop computer then there is a small issue. There is nothing to support the camcorder as you attach it to the port.

There are monitors that have USB sockets on the side. If you have one of those it might be an easier access solution. You still would have the camcorder sticking out at the side but if you have DVD cases on your desk like I do you could pile them up for support.
If you have a USB Hub you can attach the camcorder to the hub and then connect it to the computer. I actually had one that I got from the 99Cents Only store and it works fine.
Another option is a USB Plug. I've had a number of mp3 players over the years and some of them had a USB charging plug that has a slot to attach the camcorder. I had about two of them that I forgot about around the joint. I can charge the camcorder at the office or wherever I can find a socket.
I've seen USB chargers at office supply stores as well. These would have the plug and a number of connectors for various media or phone devices. They don't have to be expensive; I've seen them for about $15-$20.
The more I'm learning about the camcorder the more impressed I am with the features. I have been recording but, I don't know how to say this, I can't find moving objects. I think I've got that licked so hopefully there will be test footage soon.
