Question about JVC GR-D295U Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

I cannot transfer video from my JVC GR-D295U to my PC

I have the USB plugged into the computer and into the camcorder. The camcorder is "on". The PC does not seem to recognize tht the camcorder is plugged into the USB port. I plugged a flash drive into the same USB port to make sure it works, and the PC recognized the flashdrive (so it seems the USB port is okay).

What is the trick?

Do I have to transfer directly to the disc in the DVD burner? If so, how is that done?

buy that wire, check ur camcorder if it has 6pin or 4pin for firewire then check ur pc if it has firewire card...if not you have to purchase the ieee1394card. install it then connect your camcorder to pc through firewire and that will be it.. u also need to have a software for video capturing and editing like adobe, roxio, pinnacle , etc...hope that helps.

SOURCE: How to transfer the video in Mini DV to my computer

I suggest getting the PCI IEEE 1394 also known as FireWire card. Most of the time these Firewire card comes with a Video editing software but verify because you will need some form of video editing s/w to record the video. After recording then you can edit it however you like and transfer to DVD/etc. Always a pain in the as to edit video. I've done it a couple of times. So have fun. I still have not manage to find a Video editing s/w that will do a 5.1 audio or multiple audio tracks (similar to switching between languages)

Hi. Does your PC have an S-video socket? If so, I think it should be straight forward to connect the two.

WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD JVC GR-DV700EK DRIVERS?


Drivers are not usually needed. Connect the camcorder to your PC with a firewire lead (preferred) or possibly a usb lead ( some camcorders only transfer still images via usb). Fire up your video editing software to capture the video from the camcorder to the PC.

I can't figure out how to download video from my JVC GR-D90U Camcorder to my computer through it's usb cable. It is a mini DV camcorder that uses mini video tapes.


From the JVC manual "This camcorder can transfer still images to a PC via USB". There is no mention of video transfer via USB so it seems it is not supported.

How can I transfer from my JVC GR-FXM40EK to PC?


JVC GR-FXM40EK is analog camcorder that can not be connected directly with computer because computer needs digital video format to save the file so connect USB 2.0 Video Capture Device in computer and plug camcorder AV wires in that device that will digitize the AV signals of analog camcorder and computer will save it in your selected folder on hard disk.
Hope this will help.

I have a GR-D295U camcorder. Can I get a cable that connects the mini USB connector on the camcorder to a regular USB connector on the computer? Thanks, Rene


The USB connection for this camcorder only allows still image transfers. To transfer video you will need a DV cable (JVC VC-VDV206U or VC-VDV204U depending on the type of DV connector on the PC - 4 or 6 pins)

GR-D295U Mini DV Digital Camcorder: Cannot download things that i recorded on to a com...


Please check your drivers are on the PC for your camera so the PC can see your camera connect to it, when you plug your camera into the PC USB slot you should see a message come up near the bottom right-hand corner telling you your connection has been made, if not then your camera driver is either missing or damaged, go to camera makers site and download driver again.
Good luck.

Can't transfer video from cam to pc


While capturing the video you have to change the Video mode to PAL or NTFS mode & store the Video's in Memory card,

When you want to transper the video's, remove the card or directly plug in to the camera to Computer USB port

Now you can transper the Movie's easily..

Try it out.

good luck..
