Re: windows movie maker
Windows Movie maker does not support a number of MPEG2 codecs (there are many different MPEG2 codecs, only some of them are supported by moviemaker). The easiest thing to do is to get a program to convert your MPEG2 to another format - like avi or wmv. A free program which should do the hob for you is mediacoder which you can download from sourceforge. Here's the link to mediacoder There are also plenty of other programs out there - my favourite is AnyVideoConverter, a free version of which you can download here That should solve you problem.

the issue is that your camera exports this movies in a format that the movie-maker do not recognize ...so ..what you really meed it is a movie converter to convert the files you download from the camera into such files that are seen by the movie maker.. http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ this is a converter like I mentioned...it is a free universal one ..but on the net there are better instruments also...try it ..if it works its fine ..if it do not see your exported files to convert them in avi or mpeg4 ...just look on the internet for another one that does a similar job .. good luck ..and do not forget to rate ..
I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer.
and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista.
If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.
i have an idea for that. try to use windows xp OS and download the driver that ill provide for you. after you download install it to your pc and plug your device i hope it recognize. if does, upload your video then use any movie maker such as ulead movie maker, nero movie maker, windows movie maker etc.. and save it as any video types that you like such as avi, divx, dvd, vcd, ect.. now you have your videos on your computer. hope that helps!
You may not have the drivers installed for the camcorder.
But then again you may not need any and it is something else.
Do you have USB 2.0 support on your PC.
Also if it is not a driver issue can you tell me what version of windows you are running please?
Hey I had the same problem, you need to buy a movie converter program. I bought Movie edit pro 12 by magic (which your soppose to do all this cool crap with but I only use it to convert) and then you can convert the .mov file to a .wmv file so you can put it in the windows movie maker which is how I do it. The program was 50$ at best buy and I think you can buy a cheaper video convert program ofline if thats all you want to do. Any questions or comments email me at LittleMondoCZW@aol.com
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.
I hope you are connecting the camera to the Fire wire port of the camera, if not, if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
