This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the Windows 7 Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port.You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.The Firewire to USB cable won't work with your camcorder,you will always end up with this error.
Click the link below for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.
Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.
Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .

How do i copy recorded video unto my computer


Add a firewire port to your computer and get that working. Then, using a firewire cable connected to the DV port of the camcorder (not USB), you will connect to the firewire port you just installed and import the video.

USB is used only for transferring stills from the memory card or maybe using the camcorder as a web-cam.

To get the video off the miniDV tape, you need to use firewire (IEEE1394a, i.Link... all the same thing).

Hi, The firewire connection on my tascam fw-1804 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried replacing the cable and re-installing the drivers and still haver the problem. Can anyone help please? I'm...


First thing I would look into is the machine that has the other firewire port. Many machines use firewire ports that do not work well at all with professional audio interfaces. I had to replace my firewire card with a better one on a brand new machine to get my software to work correctly.
You might try rebooting the host machine and checking its firewire ports.
Hope this helps.

My computer doesn't not recognize my JVC GR-D275 camcorder.


sack whoever told you not to use firewire - buy a card for your PC and cable suitable for the camera (likely to end up being a 1394 to iLink). USB is wholly unsuitable (1.0/1.1 is too slow and 2.0 not stable enough) for transferring video at the bitrates that come from DV. Firewire is designed almost exclusively for high-bandwidth applications such as this.

TASCAM FW-1804 FIREWIRE PROBLEM


I have a Tascam 1804, and i've had the same problem. Mostly with Latency issues. For me, replacing the firewire chord with a gold plated one worked. PLUS, remember that the firewire connection is technically considered a NETWORK connection which is modified by whatever controls your network activity (ie. Firewall, Anti-Virus). Whenever i start to use my Tascam, i make sure I disable my WiFi and other Internet/network related items so they dont cross interfere with activity in my firewire port. hope this helps.

Firewire


firewire is a lot like usb in the power area if the drive is not getting power i would suspect the firewire port. firewire did not become very popular because of problems like these. You need to go down to a computer parts store and by a firewire card and that should provide enough power and bypass the on-board ports. Try to hook another device up to the firewire ports and see if they work if not install the daughterboard with firewire ports

Firewire cards


Why do you need to use another firewire card? The firewire port located on the right of the machine between the card reader and USB ports should work fine with most devices. I use mine frequently with a Sony Firewire camcorder and have never had a problem.

use the USB cable only for still pix. you would need a Firewire cable to be connected from your DV point in your camera to the Firewire port on your PC. Most PCs do not have Firewire readily installed. You can buy it the firewire card IE1994 card - its cheap. the IE1994 card is used for laptops and the other kind is the one you can plug into an empty card slot on your PC. You need to take off the cover of your PC and push in the Firewire Card. Put the cover back on and its plug n play. Firewire transfers at 10x the speed of USB 2.0. You will never have the problem of dropping even one frame. Its worked for me!!!
