    from what i have seen, laptops do not have firewire connectors on them, only usb

    if you mean that you have a usb to firewire wire then i havent heard of those too.

    i dont understand what you mean though.

Ok, so the cam accepts firewire but the laptop doesint, you would need an add-on card, unless your laptop has firewire already, http://i12.ebayimg.com/01/i/001/26/3c/2868_1.JPG like that one if it does have one then you will just need to connect it in and install the drivers and software included with the cam i hope it helps

I dnt hav usb cable for my handy cam DCR-HC52E ...


Product Summary
    4-pin to 4-pin IEEE 1394 iLink FireWire Cable dv out to laptop Connect and transfer home movie from your digital camcorder to Notebook computer.

    You will need a Firewire port on your computer, also known as a DV port or IEEE 1394, to use this cable. This is NOT a USB cable.

    This DV cable will connect your laptop (notebook)
    NOTE: for some models, becuase of no DV jack on the body, this cable connects to docking station/cradle instead of connecting directly to your camcorder.

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.

Need software so i can download and edit dv tapes onto my pc so i can edit them and put them onto a DVD.


Use Windows Movie Maker it should be installed as part of the Operating System.
A firewire cable is required. 4 to 6 pin for most Desktops or 4 to 4 pin for most Laptops.

connect the firewire cable - MSN Messenger detects it. Apparently there are issues with Yahoo Messenger. WARNING: you will need 512k+ upstream, you're pumping DV quality video at 30fps rather than standard webcam resolution of 320x240@12fps!

My JVC GR-DA30U didn't come with a usb connector.


you need an iLink cable. Also known as a mini-i400 or Firewire Mini. If you have standard 6-pin Firewire (IEEE1394) on your PC, you can get a converter cable which is i400 one end, 1394 the other.

Do I need a fire wire card for PC


Hi a firewire input is different from an 1394 port. For the laptop you can buy an firewire interface.

The USB on your camcorder is for downloading still pictures only. If you want to transfer video to your computer you need to hook up a firewire cable, which is to the right of the USB connection. Firewire is also known as 1394 connection.

Hope it helps.

Firewire problem


It should work. Laptops have a 4pin connection. There is a video on how to specifically connect digital cameras to laptops using 4pin to 4 pin IEEE 1394 cable. So it should work... The video is on www.HandBookLive.com under Electronics category. It doesn't cover the software because all softwares would be different, but you can see that it uses 4 pin to 4 pin. You can double check on this site though.
