I have a JVC BR-DV3000 that keeps stopping my tapes while playing
My JVC BR-DV3000 worked perfectly for the past 3 years. Now for some unknown reason it keeps stopping on it's own while I'm trying to make dubs of the video.
All the mini DV tapes that I've used are brand new. Sometimes the unit plays continuously for 1 minute, other times for 5 minutes and other times for 5 seconds. This just started happening in the past 2 weeks.
I tried cleaning the heads with a Mini DV Digital Video Head Cleaner but to no avail. If anyone has experienced this problem and knows how to solve it I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.

You can learn the guide on http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1096, see how to import video from a camcorder or camera, but you should sure the format of your video is supported by imovie or final cut pro, if don't, convert video to imovie first.
It could be several things causing your problem. The video head may be worn, the tape guides may be out of alignment or you may have a mechanism problem keeping the tape from wrapping securely around the rotating drum. If you can use an oscilloscope, you should check the RF signal coming off the drum test point to see if it is clean, or if half the signal is missing (bad drum or video head) or not smooth (guides out of adjustment).
If the problem only shows with Mini DV tapes, it can be a tape guide issue or a mchanism loading problem where the tape is not being properly "seated" into the tape mechanism. You will need to use an oscilloscope to look at the RF waveform coming off the tape to try and figure out where your problem is.
sounds like a defective cassette housing, but i have seen problems with jvc decks and camera when tdk or maxell tapes were used. the lids on these tapes seem to get stuck in the cassette housings in jvc equipment. jvc even recommends that tdk and maxell tapes be avoided.
I change my PC to new windows vista and the new PC don't recognize any VCR throw firewire, but the machine recognize my canon LG-2 by firewire. I need something special like a special driver to run my JVC's BR-DV3000 & BR-HD50 for capture video
in vegas pro 8.0?
The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape.
Good Luck, this is a nice machine!
