Question about JVC GR-D370 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
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.

Pj_antony63@yahoo.com Exactly the same problem!!!
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)

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)
