I had a similar issue. I had never been able to download video to computer because the computer never recognized the camera. As a last resort, I bought a new firewire cord today -- and my computer recognized the camera as soon as I turned the camera to play! It was four years in the making (I thought there was something wrong with my camera this entire time!), but it was just a cord issue. Now the cord that came with the camera is in the trash, and I can download video. I did buy an (XP) driver for I think $8 online, but I'm not sure whether that really had anything to do with it (I have SP3). I bought it from www.helpdrivers.com, and it was called the JVC / GR-D70U USB Mass Storage Class Driver + G.726 Decoder / Windows 98-98Se-Me-2000-XP, Item# 3021598. Downloaded it from the site. Hope that helps!

Someone here claims to have it, but requires a sign-in:

You could try downloading the JLIP software:

But that'll probably only work for XP.
As far as I know, JVC don't even PLAN to provide support for Vista users!

Virtually all camera manufacturers have websites. Find yours, then go to its "Technical Support" or "Product Support" link. Once there, look first for any link labeled "Downloads" or something similar. Sometimes you first have to get to info on your specific camera and THEN go to a download link that only appears with that model's info. What you're looking for is driver software and/or installation software that you can download to your PC. You can usually download manuals there, too. If you're still unsure, e-mail their customer support or technical support group describing your problem and ask them WHERE on their website is located the stuff you need. Once downloaded, you merely run that software and follow the onscreen instructions.

I hope this solve your problem. Please feel free to ask for more details if you need them. We'd like to see your results posted here later, if possible. Thanks for trying FixYa.

You have to clean a sensor that one finds to the right of the engine of tape load, it is not necessary to disarm, only opens the compartment of the tape, the laod engine is a vertical cylinder like a 8 mm silver color, It is located even behind to the left side, use a special hook tool, with a cotton cover and laser clen-up solution.

my pc does not recognise my camcorder gr-d63 when connected

JVC Cybercam... | Answered on Mar 03, 2009

Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.

The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire.
Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.

USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera.
If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.

The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)

Condensation is usually a result of a change in temperature of your camcorder. Like taking it from a warm house and shooting outside in a chilled environment. Or taking the camcorder that was in the car in a cold environment into a warm house. Condesation will make the tape stick to the revolving video head and the camcorder has sensors that know this could be a very bad thing for both the camcarder and your tape. So the camcorder shuts down. The tape also needs to be at the same temperature as the camcorder or temperature differences will create condensation between the tape and the video head.

Eject the tape. Shut off the camcorder and leave it in a room temperature place for a day. Then give it a try.

If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.

leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.

If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing

In order to connect your GR-D70US to your USB port, you must insert an MMC or SD memory card into the camera, however neither of these cards is included with the GR-D70US, and the card must be purchased separately. You may contact the JVC parts department at 1-800-882-2345 or visit the JVC online accessory store to purchase a MMC or SD memory card. Some local retailers may also carry these memory cards.

Hi, I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer. and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista. If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.

the ccd image sensor of your camera is the problem...i know it is free for replacing that sensor..that trouble is also in sony,canon,samsung and the other cameras brand cause the manufacturer of their sensor is only one company that why they recall it from the batch of 2002 to 2004..log on to the jvc costumer care to see all the detail...
