I had this same problem, It is the cable itself, check under system properties/hardware in control panel of windows and make sure the firewire ieee is working properly also. pretty sure you need a new cable though...goodluck

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a JVC mini DV and want to down load to my computer but don"t know how its a


First of all, you need three things to do this.

1. A fire wire port (or card which has the port and is installed to a pci slot in your computer).
2. A firewire cable which connects your camcorder to your computer.
3. Software or application for "capturing video" <--(not download video). Video editing software all consist of this application and is what you really want to acquire since it also allows you to edit you video.


Windows movie maker is a free download you can get it here.

http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=windows+movie+maker

This page allows you different options depending on your type of operating system. Be sure to choose the correct download to avoid conflicts. ie: windows xp, windows vista, and there is even a windows live download.

Once you download and install the software, plug in your device using your firewire cable and port, select "capture video using windows movie maker", then follow the directions or use help. Windows movei maker also has decent editing options considering it is free software.

Good Luck!

How to download video from digital video camera to laptop


First, you need a program on your computer that searches for connected digital video devices. Like Windows Movie Maker! Look for Windows Movie Maker on your laptop. If found, bring it up and there should be a task panel on the left side. Near the top, there should be something that says "Capture from video device". (Or something close to that.) Click on it and Windows Movie Maker will search for connected video devices. It should find you camera and will show you what you need to do. (Make sure your camera is turned on play mode.) Windows Movie Maker is a very easy to use program and allows you to add music, transitions and all kinds of cool effects to your videos. If you have any questions, please ask.

JVC GR-DVL310 VISTA DRIVER


Your JVC is a MiniDV camcorder, which uses a Firewire connection for capture. Firewire drivers are standard for all DV camcorders, and built-in on every version of Windows since about Windows 98SE (well, they didn't work very well until Windows 2000).

You still need a capture application to complete the transfer. Most (maybe all) versions of Windows comes with Windows Movie Maker, which is a very basic program, but it can do this.

Normally, a DV camcoder can't be detected by Windows until you have it connected via Firewire, and have it the appropriate mode. On some cameras, this can be play or record (the latter would tranfer live video, or allow recording TO the camera), on others, you need to set the camera to a "link to PC" mode. I currently own Sony and Canon camcorders that both work in the former way, but my first DV camcorder was a JVC, and it did have to put in a "link to PC" mode to be detected by the computer. If you can't find the setting, you might want to check your user manual.

For still photos, it looks like you use a USB connection. I haven't found all the details on this camcorder, but this is likely to be a normal USB "storage class" connection. If so, your camcorder would show up like a disc drive, and you can drag photos over. Vista will support this by default, too.

The other way some older camcorders send photos is to appear to the system as a USB scanner type device. You would need a device driver for this, from JVC.

The user manual would be helpful here. You can get one via download if you don't have it:

JVC mini DV.. video upload


I've got the same camera and I use "Windows Movie Maker" to transfer my recordings to DVD's. The program came with Windows Vista, but you may be able to download it from Microsoft.com .
There's another program that also came with Windows Vista Home Premium. It's "Muvee Auto Producer 5.0" and YES! I realize that's not how to spell "MOVIE", that's how they spell it. Anyway, although I haven't used it yet, it will transfer your home movies to DVD or you can save them to the hard drive. I prefer the "Movie Maker". It's pretty easy and it has some pretty neat features. You'll like it too. Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. I know how you feel! I was in the same boat as you, when I first got that camera...NO WAY TO SAVE MY HOME MOVIES AND COULDN'T FIND ANYONE TO TELL ME HOW TO DO IT OR WHAT SOFTWARE TO GET.
Just so you know, everything you need, to do what you're wanting to do...I already installed and ready to go in the "HP Pavilion a1710n", including the FireWire Port. Or, you could get Windows Vista Home Premium...but I don't care for it myself.
Good Luck To You,
Bill

CPU not recognizing my camcorder


I hope you are connecting the camera to the Fire wire port of the camera, if not, if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
