No, unfortunately it would not... The second I enter

	fwcontrol -S /..../tape3.dv

a message pops up on the camera's little screen, telling me, the input is in 
the wrong format :-(

Trying to play the files with Quicktime and Media Player (on Windows) results 
in file-format complains too.

I guess, fwcontrol does not capture the unknown format quite right, but I have 
no idea, how to correct it...
