Question about JVC GR-D270 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I'm using Windows XP, and have firewire connection. I've tried Movie Maker and nero plus some others. They see the firewire but nothing sees my camera. I tried contacting JVC but they are no help, they don't even respond. I tried downloading drivers and that did not help. What do I need to do??? Totaly frusterated!
A follw-up response to my initial reply.
We eventually found the problem to this issue, without the need to purchase a new firewire cable and the only way that our connection is established is:
Step 1 - Plug the firewire cable into the camcorder and computer (before switching the pc on)
Step 2 - Switch the camcorder into the 'on' position (before switching the pc on)
Step 3 - Boot up the pc.
Step 4 - Once the pc is loaded, open the editing software package and the connection is established.
It's worth a try and may solve your issue.

We too are having this problem. When we open our editing software, on the pc, to communicate with the camera, the camera responds with the pc, although there is no picture image showing on the pc and as a result we can't capture any video footage.
We are planning to try a different firewire cable, to assess whether that is the issue.

Tips for a great answer:
2. here is Movie Maker 2.6
MM2.6 has the features to fully edit and produce a video, but it doesn't have the importing feature of MM2.1. For that, you can use the import wizard in the Windows Live Suite. MM2.6 works well with the Pixelan Spice FX6 packages of extras and Wizards, and you can setup other custom effects and transitions to work with it.
I've copied MM1 and MM2.1 from my XP system and MM6 from my Vista system, registered the DLLs and they are working well. But I haven't yet added many of the thousands of extra 3rd party special effects and transitions that are on my XP and Vista computers.
It turns out installing MM2.6 also resolved some Issues I experienced with MM2.1 in Windows 7. It's not surprising as they are very similar with one made for XP and the other for Vista. The Windows 7 system is closer to Vista.
3.Now Importing a Video
In addition to the newest version of Movie Maker, the Windows Live Suite includes a video import wizard that works with a mini-DV or digital8 camcorder connected by FireWire. MM1 and MM2.1 in Windows 7 also capture video from my mini-DV camcorder, when connected by FireWire.
Imported video clips can be browsed in the folders of the Windows Live Photo Gallery or imported into the collections of the classic versions of Movie Maker.
Starting with no version of Movie Maker in Windows 7, I'm now running with five of them.
hope this helps you do vote if it helps you in this regard
