Question about JVC Cybercam GR-DVP7 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I tried everything but my laptop just doesn't seem to detect the connection when I connect it via USB cable.

Hi, Since videos are taped in DV format, you need a firewire card (IEEE-1394) and cable. These are cheap. May be your PC already has a firewire card. Just check. Windows XP recognises automatically the camcorder. Moreover, its integrated video capture/editing module, Windows Movie Maker, is very userfriendly. USB connection is only good for downloading still images (photos) to your PC. For more information, go to http://www.videohelp.com/. good luck

it is possible to transfer video via usb however it requires a video capture program windows movie maker works apparently and the cyberlink software that comes with the camera will do it too. To do it stick the usb cable in and turn the slider switch to play with the lcd screen open. Then go into your video capture software and navigate thru to capture from video device. If you cannot capture with sound then you need the appropriate audio driver. The cyberlink program works best for video capture via usb as it already has the audio codecs.

I bought my JVC GR-270 (same as GR-290, but no remote) in 2004. On page 45, top right hand column of either manual (the original and the on-line one on this site) the claim is made that "Using USB cable it is possible to do the following things: Transfer still/MOVING images recorded on a tape to a PC." After many unsuccessful attempts at trying to use the USB cable for transferring moving images to my PC, I called JVC technical dept. They told me that the MANUAL WAS WRONG....and that in order to transfer MOVING images, I needed to purchase a FIREWIRE cable. Indeed, that is the solution. However, If your PC has no FIREWIRE input jack you must also purchase a FIREWIRE adapter card. Don't skimp on these items, get a well shielded cable and a name brand adapter.
What burns me is that I looked at the manual in the store and only purchased the camera because it claimed that the enclosed USB cable would work for moving images. JVC denies responsibility, even though their manual is clearly wrong, and they know it.
