Re: My JVC GR-DVL815 can not connect to pc

Is either device limited to USB 1.0 only while the other runs ONLY USB 2.0?

You should have a DV Cable 4-pin to 4-pin firewire (part number VC-VDV204U ) which came with your camera. It would not have firewire on one end and usb on the other. They are two seperate technologies. see

My GR-D720EK is showing unknown device

Usually that tells you that the driver may not be installed. Remove he camera from the USP or however you have it connect to the computer and try to re-install the drivers with the software that came with it. This is all I could find on your unit at this time.
Hope this helped some....

How to solve this problem

I found this on the JVC Website:

It covers connectivity with JVC camcorders.

I didn't see any software or drivers on the site. Although depending on what operation system you are using, it should be plug and play.

Are you using Vista?

Is this a USB or Firewire connection?
