Can I connect a device that uses a firewire to a laptop using an USB adapter? I am using Windows 7. Is this possible?

Yes. This is a common process to transfer videos from mini camcorders to computers that don't have firewire ports. According to forums on the Internet, this is a fairly common method. Due to the fact that you are using adapters, you might encounter compatibility issues, so before you buy something, make sure that it is compatible with the other items that you possess.
