Had same problem...although manual states you can transfer via USB, it doesn't work and won't no matter how many drivers you find. What does work is a Firewire cables. You have three options but I only have tried and proven one. Options:

1. 4-Pin to 4-Pin Firewire transfer cable. The camera has a Firewire port directly below the AC Power adaptor port. This worked fine pulling the video to my PC using Windows Media Transfer. No drivers necessary...at least for Vista. As soon as I plugged in the camera, a window opened asking what actions I wanted to take. Only my HP Laptop equipped with 4-Pin Firewire.

2. 4-Pin (Camera) to 6-Pin Firewire (PC). My Laptop or Desktop not equipped.

3. 4-Pin Firewire (Camera) to USB (PC). Might work but since I couldn't pull data through Camera USB, didn't want to invest in this cable configuration.

Solution in future is buy a bunch of SD Media cards (Not SD-HC) and stop using tape. Transfer direct to PC from SD Card.

    Looking over my comments....don't think camera will allow video direct to SD card bypassing the video card, SD may only be for snapshot mode. I'll have to try it out.

I can't get the video to get on my PC via UCB cord from the cassette tape


Hi Parker,

First of all you need to install GR-D275 driver on your PC. This driver should in one package with your camcoder when bought.

If the driver has been installed on your PC then your camcoder being connected to PC, click right bottom on yourpc screen tagged with ' Shows hidden Icons while you pointing the 'up' arrow. Then choose USB icon and search for your camera .

How old is the camcoder?

Is it digital?

You may need a video capture card installed on your computer to transfer video to your system.

Check ebay for a "dazzle" box.....

Good luck

JVC DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA MODEL NO. GR-D370U


Hi Heidi.

Be sure your camera is on when you have connected it to your PC. Then you have to put it in Play mode and rewind the tape if it's a USB cable you connect with. Start Windows Movie Maker and test.

The following link could be useful http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/default.mspx

You can transfer video from the camera to your pc by using an i.Link connection if your camera has it or you can use the supplied usb wire to connect it to your pc and transfer the video that way. If you do not have the cord it is easily obtainable at any camera repair or sales store.

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:
