Transferring footage to pc

I need to capture footage from camcorder to avid liquid. I would usually use firewire to do this, but this camcorder does not seem to have the connection. Is there a way to do this through USB

First plug in your USB cord to the comp and you'll see the options play on pc, pc connection, etc. Select CREATE DVD! (You won't be able to see or select any of the files you are going to import, oh well.) You should see the regular screen pop up that says import, create, view pictures. Click IMPORT PICTURES. It will automatically import both pictures and video. For file name write something you can easily locate, ex: AAAAAAAAAAAAAA (you can change it later) Then open MOVIE MAKER. Click on IMPORT on the upper left hand corner and you'll see their demo video listed. Click on picture and video files on the bottom right hand corner and select ALL FILES. You should see what was downloaded!!! YAY!! I haven't burn a DVD yet but the files are there and the program should do it from there!

Do i need a cord to transfer my canon ax h1 footage to my computer?


Yes you need a IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.LINK) cable to connect your camera to your computer.
Your computer also should have a Firewire port to connect this to your computer.


Else if you have a video capture card then you can connect the video out cable and capture the video from the camera.

I have a Samsung DV-D381 MINI Camcorder. What


OK there are NO cables as such for that PC, as of normal, to get Video into this machine you will have to use either, a USB TV/Video card, and use the AV inputs. OR put a Video TV/Video Capture card into a PCI slot, and again use the AV inputs to connect via. The you will have to use the AV leads Yellow, Red & White, OR the SVHS port if available. You will also need software to record the video stream, If you camera has FireWire then you could install a FireWire Card into a PCI slot and hook you via that, you will still have to use software though. Sometimes the camera, has proprietary software to edit and work with the Video from the camera, usually via FireWire. To get said software go to the manufacturers web site, and download a copy.

How do I transfer the footage I recorded to PC?


The USB cable is only to download still images recorded on the memory card, using the software that came with the camera. To download video, you need to connect to a computer with a Firewire cable, and have video editing software on your computer to communicate with the camera.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.


Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

Scrambled footage


if you are captureing through the fire wire port, it could be the port is bad. Just to make sure, see if you can get ahold of a "Blue Box" one of those analog to firewire converter boxes, and see if it comes out clear then. if it does then I am 100% sure that it is the firewire port.

JVC camera software GR-D70 for windows vista


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)
