JVC GR-D347U Mini DV connection to laptop

I have a JVC digital video camera (mini DV) model JVC GR-D347U.This camcorder has 4 pin DV connector for transferring moving images to P.C. I also have one laptop with IEEE1394 compliant DV 4 pin connector and Windows vista. I am not able to transfer images from camcorder to Laptop through DV cable(4 PIN TO 4 PIN).I tried with windows movie maker and ULEAD video software but laptop is not identifying the video device. Is this JVC DV requires any separate driver compatible to widows vista. I am very thankful to you if you can help me.

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: 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)

Could it be a bad cable or a bent/broken pin where the cable is connected to?

I have got my uncle`s Mini Dv JVC GR-DVL300 EA without driver to connect to my laptop running with Vista please also advise me where/how can get a cable to connect that camera to my laptop thank you


The cable is a firwire 4-6 or 4-4 pin cable. Check your computer for the type of firewire socket it has. Most newer laptops have 4 pin.
These are available at most places that sell computer gear.

Does the JVC Digital Video Camera GR-D347U have an external mic port?


Hi, The GR-D347U doesn't have microphone jack, it only has Audio/Video output connector and Digital Video Connector[DV in/out]. If you are familiar with the non-linear editing I'd like to recommend to use the digital recorder like mp3, ipod etc, then you can mix that on the video with the clear audio from your subject.

I have a JVC Digital video camera model GR-DV500U I'm trying to connect to my computer with a dv cable. my computer handles the 6 pin but the 4 pin for the camcorder is to large for the connection. Can't...


I presume that you are using desk top computer, thus it has bigger connector. Solution, have find this connector so that one end fit to your cam and the other end fits to your PC. This connector have the same format(protocol) and easy to find in computer store. USB streaming is ok for this model for earlier windows OS, haven't try with windows 7 yet. hope it helps

Uploading issues from JVC mini GR-D770U


As I understand it your computer needs either a firewire port or a 4 or 6 pin DV port depending on what type of connector is on the computer end of the DV cable you purchased.

My JVC GR-DA30U didn't come with a usb connector.


you need an iLink cable. Also known as a mini-i400 or Firewire Mini. If you have standard 6-pin Firewire (IEEE1394) on your PC, you can get a converter cable which is i400 one end, 1394 the other.
