Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

My computer no longer recognizes my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam when I plug it into a usb port.

When I plugged my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam into my computer the computer's plug and play feature would recognize it and prompt me to select an application to use. I would use Windows Movie Maker. Now when I plug the cam in nothing happens and when I open Movie Maker to manually capture the video it does not recognize that any video device is attached to the computer. Any suggestions?

    Thanks....it had been awhile since i had used the camera and i was using the usb connection instead of firewire. the usb connection only works when uploading digital pics from the camera.....firewire connection must be used for capturing video from the camera.

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.

cheers,

Win XP sp2 not recognizing gr-d70


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!
