Question about JVC GR-D270US Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Video, to Computer.

Okay, I'm seriously so confused here. I bought a memory card for this thing, and it will only let me take digital stills on it. I wanna edit my video. Can I even record video on memory, or is there any way I can get footage from tape to computer with the camera? I have had this thing way too long to be in search of a TV every time i want to show someone something cool I filmed.

Re: Video, to Computer.

Hi, The memory card can only handle still pictures and in some model low quality email clips can be recorded. For video capture the latest camcorders are providing high speed USB 2 transfer.But for older models you need to get it done with the help of firewire card. If you want to capture your video you can either buy a firewire card(can easily purchased from computer accessory shops,low cost) and plugin to pci slot of your PC,else if you have a DV port you can connect to that with a dv cable (which can be purchased from all camera stores).The camcorder is provided with a 1394 port to which you can connect the cable from firewire card. All the best my friend. sreejith Once you are ready with these you can use any of the video editing programs(even you might have got a freeware from JVC) with that you can capture in full DVD quality to PC.

Can't play back videos on my experna; memory card Sandisk class 4 8Gb. Have a canon Vixia HFR10 camcorder

Okay, ours is a different brand (JVC) but they may have some basic similarities in function. To playback video clips stored on the memory card, put the memory card in the card reader slot of the computer and put the files onto the computer. Playback the clips from your computer video or photo file. (Ours won't playback video stored on the memory card through the camera.)

To playback video clips stored on the camera hard drive through the camera, we open the viewer screen, look at the function keys on the camera body, select the "Play" button. On the screen it displays thumbnails of the various video clips. We use the toggle/function key to select from the menu containing options for playback, edit, delete, protect, etc.

Transfering video to Mac

Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.

The memory card is strictly for still photos. The tape is strictly for video. Transferring video tot he PC requires a firewire card on your PC (for direct cable connection).

Formatting SD Card to shoot stills

Hello Sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or

  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    How to connect my jvc mini dv camcorder to my computer without the disc

    you have not mentioned which model JVC camera you have bought, any ways, if it has with both memory card and minidv cassette facility, then you require a fire wire card to transfer cassette contents, and for stills on card insert the card to the slot and then connect it to the computer through USB cable, then the computer will recognise your camera.
