Question about JVC GR-D240 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a JVC GR-D240ek camcorder and I want to connect it to my laptop (vista) and edit my movies that way, I have a firewire going from my camera to a USB port on laptop but am stuck from there can anyone help please?
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) :
God luck and thank you for using FixYa.
