Download mini DV tapes to computer


Win 7 with it´s automatic driver download from internet, corel studio 12 wen it starts shows transfer mini dv to dvd, and a normal firewire connection (from the right side of the lens -hidden under rubber cover-) that allows corel to use the camera automatically when the camera is on play mode.

My camera JVC GR D720EK is enable now to give me any image to record and say lens cap,can you help me please?


wide spread problem with the CCD Assembly on this line of JVC products. In particular with the GR-DxxU line.According to some posts on the net regarding using TDK or other 3rd party DV tapes, it may be linked to lens-cap dislpay messages poping up.

From what I read, you'll have to:

1. Take the tape out.
2. Get a JVC tape
3. Take the battery out.
4. Leave unplugged for a long time ( 1 day or more)
5. put battery in
6. load JVC tape.

I cannot confirm this, so all you can do is try this.
The worst it can be is that it'll cost you the tape or
it'll start working all together and you are happy again.

Hope this helps,

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????


If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.
