    I have the firewire cable, I made the connections and there is nothing at all. No hardware found no nothing, camcorder is on in the playback mode. I have reconnected my unit but still nothing. My computer connection says only 1394 that should be 4-6 pin connection. thats what I bought.

The usb cable is for the still images.
if you want to transfer the videos you need a dv (firewire) cable. you need to check what type of connection your computer has if its a 4 or 6 pin connection. some computers dont have any. its usually labeled on the computer IEEE 1394 or just 1394. the camcorder has a 4 pin connection, so depending on computer you will need a 4-4 or 4-6 pin dv cable. then you can use windows movie maker to capture the video.

What kind of cable do i need to use from camcorder jvc gr-d33u to pc?

This camera cannot send video to most PCs. It doesn't have a USB connector. There is something called a DV connector, but it is very unlikely that your computer has this. This is also called a Firewire connector and can often be found on the Apple Mac.

You can get an add-on PC card to fit Firewire connections to a PC. If you do this, you will need software (supposed to have come with the computer or you can use third party software) to do the transfers, and a cable JVC VC-VDV206U. This is however just a normal Firewire cable- though you want to be sure that you get the kind with a small connector at one end for the camera and a larger connector at the other (six pin) for the computer.

You can download a copy of the manual at

Puttiny videos on my computer

Let me tell you that you can only store stills taken from your camera that too in still mode initiated on your GR-D370. To transfer video to your computer you require a firewire cable, a DV port on your PC.
