Question about JVC GR-D370 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, i am having problems getting my computer to recognize my camera. I ordered online through JVC the cord that connects the video camera to the computer, I even had the port installed into my tower so I would be able to upload videos (not usb, the other thing). They told me I should be able to upload videos now, but when I use my windows movie maker to upload it says "device not found". I'm getting very discouraged. I'm not too computer illiterate, although I don't know what some of the cords, and plugs and what not are called. My question is this...Am i doing something wrong, am I leaving something out, or do I need to download some kind of software in order for my computer to recognize my video camera? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! Why wouldn't the camera come with the firewire cord? my camera manual mentions that item no where and from what I can see there is no port for a fire wire on my camera..............that makes no sense...
I am not sure why cameras dont come w/ firewire cord. May be its expensive..?
Neways, You need to use the 4 pin firewire to 4 pin firewire cable to connect PC to the camcorder. http://www.bluejprojects.com/blog/articls/video-2-pc-gs120/firewire-ends.jpg
This camcorder model has the firewire port. Please check the manual carefully to find its location.
You need to switch on the camera. Keep it in play/ edit mode. Open movie maker. Its should detect the camera now. If not, try installing the software which came with the camcorder. It might have any drivers.

SOURCE: can't upload videos to computer
The JVC cameras have a flip-out screen, behind this is a small port to which the camera cable connects, kind of "M" shaped. It may also have a DV port hidden behind a small plastic door somewhere on the camera. The other end of the cable goes to the back of your computer tower. Turn the camera's power switch to "Play" or VCR mode and then connect the cable to the tower. Windows should detect the camera, load it and then offer to capture the footage using Windows Movie Maker. The video imported is saved to your "Videos" folder by default. Under start, go up to your user name at the upper right -- usually your name-- and inside the window that opens look for Videos.
You can then use Windows Movie Maker to capture and edit your movie.
