Digital 8 to Mini DV

I have some video footage recorded on my Digital 8 and my brother would like to use it to edit it on his computer. Is there any way to tranfer the video from my Digital 8 to his Mini DV without losing any quality??? All input is appreciated. Thank You!

I seem to recall a firewire port on the Digital 8 that I used last year on an I mac, check with that and try going that route. I'm not really sure about it all though, I'm just getting started in MiniDV.

Digital 8 cameras use the same DV codec that MiniDV cameras do. I think it's possible to connect the D8 camera to the DV camera via the appropriate firewire cable and make a digital copy, but I've never tried it myself so I can't say so for sure.
