24 hours later, Dad and I were squinting in the schoolroom over a pile of circuitboard guts. We had removed the wires from my old serial Palm IIIc cradle and were carefully soldering on a set of wires from a new usb cable (Thanks Steve Wayde).
Some duct tape, glue, and a few Windows drivers, and I was ready. The boards and filters didn't disappoint. There it was in full glory. For a mere $25, I was able to turn the CVS single-time-use digital video camera into my very own non-disposable digital videocamera.

Since this is my first try, and since I have nothing but Microsoft Movie Maker on the WinXP box, you get a DivX encoded mpeg whose audio may not work in Quicktime. Try Windows Media Player. The movie, which is 1 minute long, is 3 megs, so it may take some time to download over my DSL. Enjoy!
