When I connect the camera with a firewire cable there is no response
My computer does not respond when I connect the GR-DV3 to it with a firewire cable. I can play footage back on the camera and there is still no activity in my editing program. When I connect my sony mini-dv camera, the computer automatically recognizes it. Is something wrong with the JVC camera?

you will need a firewire cable (ieee 1394).
you will also need a firewire port on your computer. if you don't have such a port you can buy a firewire pci card.
firewire looks similar to a usb port but it is different in size.
I am not aware of any firewire to USB conversion cables.
The two protocols are so radically different it's unlikely that anyone will make one.
If your laptop has a PCI slot on the side you can get FW cards that fit to give you 2 firewire ports.
I think you may need to connect the camera via Firewire, I've checked the specs of your camera and it seems to be minidv and has a firewire port. A lot of video editing software will not detect your camera unless it is connected via the firewire port. you need to check if your pc has one first of all you can do this by going to control panel/ network connections and see if there's an icon for 1394 Connection if there is then you have firewire, so you then need to see which type of socket it is on your pc and on your camera and purchase a suitable cable. Take a look here for a reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FireWire If you don't have firewire you can buy a firewire pci card that will slot into your computer which will contain 3 or 4 ports.
Sorry, but it's not possible to record directly to a PC. Windows movie maker will only record from a tape. Please use a quality cable like Belkin, I have had issues with the cheaper firewire cords. Good luck
Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.
The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire. Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.
USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera. If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.
The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)
We too are having this problem. When we open our editing software, on the pc, to communicate with the camera, the camera responds with the pc, although there is no picture image showing on the pc and as a result we can't capture any video footage.
We are planning to try a different firewire cable, to assess whether that is the issue.
