You say you have a firewire cable so I'm guessing you realize there is a difference between the firewire cable and the USB cable. You cannot transfer video with the USB cable.

What is your operating system XP, Vista or something else?

When you plug in the firewire cable to the camera and the computer and then turn on the camera does anything happen at all? I cannot recall the exact message, but you should see a small pop-up in the taskbar that something about detecting a DV device.

If you don't see it there may be a variety of problems, but I would still open a video capture application to see if the software "sees" the camera. Windows Movie Maker will work, but I use another product called Scenalzyer. You can download a free copy of Scenalzyer at www.scenalyzer.com. The demo copy is fully functional, but it will leave a "watermark" on your video. You'll need to pay for it to capture video without the watermark.

Assuming you try one of these software packages and you do not have any success I would do the following: right click on My computer and select properties, now select the Hardware tab and finally click on Device Manager. Look through the list and see if you can find something like 1394 Host Controller. If you find it, does it have any exclamation points or question marks next to it?

If none of this helps let me know and we can try some other things. Lastly, I want you to know that I'm not paid for this. It's a strange hobby know, but I like helping when I can. If you find any of this helpful (even if it does not ultimately solve your problem) I hope you will rate this positively. Thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: driver in windows XP

Use this guide:
http://www.jvcpro.co.uk/getResource2/install_sr-dvm70.pdf?id=6345

It's for a different model, but it works the same.

In a nutshell, when the "AV/C Tuner" driver request comes up, just cancel the install. Then, it will want an "AV/C Tape Recorder/Player" driver. It "should" install automatically and be instantly recognized. If not, follow the instructions in the guide.

There are also instructions in there for disabling the "Av/C Tuner" every time the deck gets connected. Hope this helps - worked for me! - cliffpro.com

SOURCE: record directly from jvc model GR-- D370U Digital Video Camera to my pc

Sorry, but it's not possible to record directly to a PC. Windows movie maker will only record from a tape. Please use a quality cable like Belkin, I have had issues with the cheaper firewire cords.
Good luck

Says "not connected to camcorder"; how can we just get it to read & "autoplay" simple dvd's we put in?JVC


Probably because you have not selected the appropriate "INPUT" (DVD/VCR, etc) from your remote. It plays the DVD you put in but you cannot watch it on your TV because you have not selected the right A/V input source. Hre is a link to the user's manual.

The hard disk hasn't been recognized in Windows because the JVC runs Linux so the drive was formatted in EXT3 which Windows can't read.
Simple fix to recover all your data: connect the disk back to the pc and boot from a Linux Live-CD like
http://pclinuxos.com/
In there all you have to do is to copy all the content of the disk to your local disk (PCLinuxOS can read and write securely on NTFS/Windows disks). Or you could just burn them to some dvd's.
For the rest: 1 - on the CS pins; 2 - no.

I'm getting a message "Camcorder not connected. I can't program any recordings


When this recorder reads 'not connected to camcorder' you are simply accessing the recorder's 'DV' input on the front panel of recorder. This 'DV' input is used with DV Camcorders, thus the message.

Simply hit the 'AUX' button on the remote control to access the recorders other inputs. It will cycle between-TUNER>>AV1>>AV2>>DV.

Depending on what you want to access or view and where they are hooked up to the recorder. The "Tuner" will access either your over the air digital channels or your basic cable channels when hooked up through the 'UHF/VHF' input on the rear panel.AV1 is input 1 on the back of the recorder. AV2 is the input on the front of the recorder. DV allows for a Digital Video Camcorder to be hooked up to recorder using a 'Firewire'.

Software needed to download JVC GR-DVL707


most cam corders either have cables that come with it that will plug into your vcr or you will need a firewire connector ( if you post back with make and model of your cam corder ) you should be able to go from there.

The manuals should tell you how.

Generally speaking a firewire cable should allow you to do it.

JVC SR-DVM700 Recorder


When I contacted JVC tech support their answer was this "On page 54 of the manual it describes how to connect to a DV device. This would be the same way to connect to a computer, but we do not guarantee operation".

Not much help if you ask me, but at this time there does not seem to be a problem to them and thus no real solution.
