Question about JVC GR-D250 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, i am having problems getting my computer to recognize my camera. I ordered online through JVC the cord that connects the video camera to the computer, I even had the port installed into my tower so I would be able to upload videos (not usb, the other thing). They told me I should be able to upload videos now, but when I use my windows movie maker to upload it says "device not found". I'm getting very discouraged. I'm not too computer illiterate, although I don't know what some of the cords, and plugs and what not are called. My question is this...Am i doing something wrong, am I leaving something out, or do I need to download some kind of software in order for my computer to recognize my video camera? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
You can buy it at any store that sells electronic stuff, I think.

The suggestion that "Drawsalot" gave you, was pretty much it...All except for one thing! If you don't either slide the eye view finder back, or flip the screen open.., the camera won't play the tape and your computer won't see that you have your camera hooked up to it. Oh, just so you know...That "OTHER THING" you had installed in your computer, that isn't USB, is called a FireWire Port. Be sure to use a FireWire cord and plug the smaller end of that cord into the lower plug-in on your camera. Just above the plug-in, you'll see the letters "DV" stamped. That's where that cord goes. Of course, the other end of it, goes to that FireWire Port you had installed.
Good Luck To You,

The JVC cameras have a flip-out screen, behind this is a small port to which the camera cable connects, kind of "M" shaped. It may also have a DV port hidden behind a small plastic door somewhere on the camera. The other end of the cable goes to the back of your computer tower. Turn the camera's power switch to "Play" or VCR mode and then connect the cable to the tower. Windows should detect the camera, load it and then offer to capture the footage using Windows Movie Maker. The video imported is saved to your "Videos" folder by default. Under start, go up to your user name at the upper right -- usually your name-- and inside the window that opens look for Videos.
You can then use Windows Movie Maker to capture and edit your movie.

SOURCE: can't upload videos to computer
I had to install the software that came with the camera before it would properly work. Windows would recognize that some USB device had been plugged in but would not properly be able to tranfer data. Hope this helps.
