Re: How to transfer the video in Mini DV to my computer

I suggest getting the PCI IEEE 1394 also known as FireWire card. Most of the time these Firewire card comes with a Video editing software but verify because you will need some form of video editing s/w to record the video. After recording then you can edit it however you like and transfer to DVD/etc. Always a pain in the as to edit video. I've done it a couple of times. So have fun. I still have not manage to find a Video editing s/w that will do a 5.1 audio or multiple audio tracks (similar to switching between languages)

Jvc gr-d395u video camcorder, move mini dv to computer

How it's supposed to work is to get a program that recognizes the camera, then the tape can be captures. Windows Movie Maker never supported it. In fact Microsoft doesn't even support it anymore. They have recommended using Pinncale Studio to work with DV cameras.

Once you install Studio, put the tape in, turn the camera on, Studio will load up.

JVC GR-DVP7 - Video to PC / Firewire Cable ... where can I get one?

Best Buy has a 6 pin to 4 pin firewire cable. You will need some software as well to copy to the hard drive such as Pinnacle Studio if you don't have on already.

Once the cable is plugged in and turned on Studio will detect the camera and run the program.

Puttiny videos on my computer

Let me tell you that you can only store stills taken from your camera that too in still mode initiated on your GR-D370. To transfer video to your computer you require a firewire cable, a DV port on your PC.
