1394 and Firewire are the same interface. Firewire is simply the trademarked name Apple has for the IEEE 1394 interface.

The 1394 interface comes in a couple of different types and can also have different physical plug ins. Your laptop likely has a mini-DV type plug and so does your camera. You'll just have to make sure you get the right cable (or plug-to-plug converter for a cable you have).

Hi a firewire input is different from an 1394 port. For the laptop you can buy an firewire interface.

How to transfer record to my laptopeduard


needs drivers to install camera to laptop. or In order to place taped videos to the PC, you need a Fire Wire port on your computer, a 6pin to 4pin fire wire cable, and a lot of hard drive space. One hour is about 14 gigs when transfered 100% uncompressed. After editing and compression though the file size is very manageable.

**For every minute you record it takes one minute to transfer to the PC*


or you need a usb videop capture to transfer video to your laptop

Record directly from jvc model GR-- D370U Digital Video Camera to my pc


Sorry, but it's not possible to record directly to a PC. Windows movie maker will only record from a tape. Please use a quality cable like Belkin, I have had issues with the cheaper firewire cords.
Good luck

Hi Heidi.

Be sure your camera is on when you have connected it to your PC. Then you have to put it in Play mode and rewind the tape if it's a USB cable you connect with. Start Windows Movie Maker and test.

The following link could be useful http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/default.mspx

Use firewire connection(DV Port) and must use a good quality cable. Sub standard cable lead you to trouble. There's no Vista issue with this camcorder model, only at the software side, JVC website provide a list for those update is needed including upgrade link. I can not post the link this time since that was long time and i need to search for that again. Have search it on JVC site, i will give you an update as well. Good Luck, keep in touch

I want to capture movie from dv tape to compaq presario notebook


You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394 firewire card in one of your PCI slots.
