buy that wire, check ur camcorder if it has 6pin or 4pin for firewire then check ur pc if it has firewire card...if not you have to purchase the ieee1394card. install it then connect your camcorder to pc through firewire and that will be it.. u also need to have a software for video capturing and editing like adobe, roxio, pinnacle , etc...hope that helps.

SOURCE: HOw to transfer video to PC
The camera should work fine in XP without a driver (none exist except for Mac OS). The problem sounds like it could be the transfer cable - are you using the original one? Some of these cables are specific for certain models. Even if the cable looks the same and actually plugs in correctly, a standard replacement may not work. If you can give me details of your location, I can try and source an original cable for you if you need it. Try the camera on another PC to see if you get the same message, and try every cable you have or can borrow. Hope this helps :)

You can't capture the video with a USB cable. The USB cable and software that came with the camcorder are only used to transfer still images.
To transfer video you'll need a DV cable (also known as a Firewire cable) and some additional software. I use Scenalyzer Live. It's not free, but you can download a demo copy to see if you like it before you buy it. Here's a link to the Scenalyzer website:
If you have the JVC manual you should read page 41. If you don't have the manual you can download it here:
The download link is about half way down the left side. It's a little difficult to find, but it's there.
Lastly, all this assumes that your computer has a Firewirre port. Most new computers will have one, but if you do not you'll need to buy and install a Firewire PCI card. Let us know if you need more help.

try to use USB to plug your device to your computer. make sure that you have an installed driver for your camcorder to recognize your device on your pc. all brand new camcorder came with an installation software cd. now your ready to transfer your video to your computer. use any movie maker application like ulead movie maker, nero movie maker or windows movie maker edit it and save it. burn it to your vcd or dvd burner to play on your dvd player. if you dont have a driver i will find one for you. hope that helps!
