I'm not sure where to post this but it's regarding a videocamera so I hope I'm in the right spot.

I got a Samsung Digital Cam VP-D371W which got a DV port on the side next to the AV port. Is this DV port for computer connection? Is it posssible to connect this kind of camera to a computer, if that's so, which cable to use?

Thanks so much!

The jacks at 8 are probably what the poster is talking about - the diagram on wrench97's attachment tell you which is which.

You have a Firewire jack - the one labelled IE1394 in the diagram - this is the best one for video file transfer from the camera to your computer IF you have a firewire port on your computer
The USB jack can be used but often results in dropped frames and/or audio not being transferred properly or sometimes not transferring at all depending on your computer specs.
The AV jack should allow you to connect your camcorder to a television to play the videos on your TV screen.
