Question about JVC GR-D370 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Can't upload videos to computer

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...

Hi, 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.

Having difficulty connecting the jvc gr-d370 to my computer using Windows Media. What must I do to retrieve the video from the camcorder using the USB cable?


I had this same issue. I solved it. The USB cable will NOT work to transfer video. You need a IEEE-1395 fire wire cable. I purchased the internal card and cable for under $20.00 for my DELL computer direct from dell. After you connect your camcorder to your computer, I clicked on windows photo gallery. Then in top left corner, click file and "import from camera or scanner. Your camcorder must be on video mode and play mode. Your computer should recognize the camcorder, click on it and then it will give you options, like you can upload and record direct onto DVD. I liked the option of uploading manually because if there are blank sections on the DV tape, the computer will stop uloading. Hope this helps.

Lost disk, new computer, how do I download from my JVC GZ-MG130U?


Have you tried the cord from your camera to your computer's usb port? It should be recognized by the computer, allowing you to transfer your videos to a folder. The camera has a built in memory, so you have to use a cord to transfer the movies and pics.

Upload video


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.

Win XP sp2 not recognizing gr-d70


I had a similar issue. I had never been able to download video to computer because the computer never recognized the camera. As a last resort, I bought a new firewire cord today -- and my computer recognized the camera as soon as I turned the camera to play! It was four years in the making (I thought there was something wrong with my camera this entire time!), but it was just a cord issue. Now the cord that came with the camera is in the trash, and I can download video. I did buy an (XP) driver for I think $8 online, but I'm not sure whether that really had anything to do with it (I have SP3). I bought it from www.helpdrivers.com, and it was called the JVC / GR-D70U USB Mass Storage Class Driver + G.726 Decoder / Windows 98-98Se-Me-2000-XP, Item# 3021598. Downloaded it from the site. Hope that helps!

Can't upload videos to computer


I had to install the software that came with the camera before it would properly work. Windows would recognize that some USB device had been plugged in but would not properly be able to tranfer data. Hope this helps.
