JVC GR-D50 not seen by PC or Mac via Firewire

I have in the past connected my JVC GR-D50 DV camera via Firewire to myPC to capture video. Last night the PC couldn't see it at all. Iuninstalled the IEEE 1394 controller on the motherboard [TexasInstruments OHCI compliant] and reinstalled it. Still it couldn't beseen. I tried 2 different pieces of capture software [Ulead Videocapture & ImageMixer1.1] - both reported Camcorder could not befound. Am running XP Pro 32bit SP2. I brought the camera to work andhooked it up to a Mac [none of my office PCs have firewire] using thesame IEEE1394 cable. The Mac couldn't see it. I changed the cable foranother. the Mac still couldn't see it.....So it must be the softwarein the camera. SO WHAT NOW?

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

WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD JVC GR-DV700EK DRIVERS?


Drivers are not usually needed. Connect the camcorder to your PC with a firewire lead (preferred) or possibly a usb lead ( some camcorders only transfer still images via usb). Fire up your video editing software to capture the video from the camcorder to the PC.

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have jvc GR d720 dv camcorder but unable to connect .. driver required ... i have firewire send me in khairnar.abhijeet@gmail.com


No driver required for Windows XP. I simply plugged in the camera via FireWire. Windows automatically recognizes it as a digital video device. Then I started up Windows Movie Maker and followed the wizard to capture the movie from my digital video device. It was really easy.

GR-D60EK importing data from camera to computer


You need a cable. If your camcorder has a DV port you need a firewire port in the back of your computer as well as a firewire cable. If your computer has a USB port you need a USB cable.

You also need video capturing software to use it. Pinnacle Systems makes an easy to use system that work with your camcorder. Once the software is installed, the cable is plugged in and the camera is turned on, your computer will lauch Studio for you.

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)

JVC GR-DVL310 VISTA DRIVER


Your JVC is a MiniDV camcorder, which uses a Firewire connection for capture. Firewire drivers are standard for all DV camcorders, and built-in on every version of Windows since about Windows 98SE (well, they didn't work very well until Windows 2000).

You still need a capture application to complete the transfer. Most (maybe all) versions of Windows comes with Windows Movie Maker, which is a very basic program, but it can do this.

Normally, a DV camcoder can't be detected by Windows until you have it connected via Firewire, and have it the appropriate mode. On some cameras, this can be play or record (the latter would tranfer live video, or allow recording TO the camera), on others, you need to set the camera to a "link to PC" mode. I currently own Sony and Canon camcorders that both work in the former way, but my first DV camcorder was a JVC, and it did have to put in a "link to PC" mode to be detected by the computer. If you can't find the setting, you might want to check your user manual.

For still photos, it looks like you use a USB connection. I haven't found all the details on this camcorder, but this is likely to be a normal USB "storage class" connection. If so, your camcorder would show up like a disc drive, and you can drag photos over. Vista will support this by default, too.

The other way some older camcorders send photos is to appear to the system as a USB scanner type device. You would need a device driver for this, from JVC.

The user manual would be helpful here. You can get one via download if you don't have it:
