There is no Firewire to USB adapter for a few bucks. That question comes up a lot and some folk lash out about that.
Sony is no longer making the no-PC transfer deck but you can find them on Amazon and any old desktop can do the capture for under 20 bucks for a firewire card.
Your camcorder is not a brick. But you will find folk that won't use another PC to do the transfer step.
