Connect A JVC GR D31 Camcorder to a Computer Via USB 2

How do I connect my Camcorder to my Computer As I do Not have a Fire Wire Port on the computer. Only USB 2.
Is there a DAta cable Suitable for My JVC GR D31 Camcorder that has a UsB connection at one end instead of Fire Wire.

Hey ! I hope everyone reads this. All you gotta do is turn on the USB Stream setting somehwere on your camcorders menu. Works everytime!

Well I'm afraid not the cable don't not come in such of a way either cause they are different type of cable, but what u can do is buy an external fire wire card for yr PC it comes in PCI format for yr desktop PC. because camcorder in these days do not use USB cables due to the cause that fire wire cable is much faster than the USB ones.

Drivers are not usually needed. Connect the camcorder to your PC with a firewire lead (preferred) or possibly a usb lead ( some camcorders only transfer still images via usb). Fire up your video editing software to capture the video from the camcorder to the PC.

I have an jvc gr-sxm250 svhsc & need to transfer taped recordings to computer for disk pacing on disk,however i 'm clueless on what do. have a ubs-cord, but cannot find a link-port on camera. can you...

This is analog machine, you can not connect directly via digital connection. You need a capture device(composite to USB) available in the market. In case of Desktop Computer a PCI TV TUNER card that has video input can be used to capture videos from you tape. But, video quality in this set up is not as good as videos from digital sources like digital camcorder. Good luck

Can a jvc camcorder GR-SXM38US be connect to a IEEE 1394 port on a computer, if so what cable do I need to buy

Nope, that camera only has S-Video and composite video outputs. IEEE1394 is also known as firewire. Newer camcorders will connect via firewire. You will need a video capture card for your computer. Either an internal card or a USB version. Then you can record the video onto your computer.

I want to capture movie from dv tape to compaq presario notebook

You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394 firewire card in one of your PCI slots.

How to connect my jvc mini dv camcorder to my computer without the disc

you have not mentioned which model JVC camera you have bought, any ways, if it has with both memory card and minidv cassette facility, then you require a fire wire card to transfer cassette contents, and for stills on card insert the card to the slot and then connect it to the computer through USB cable, then the computer will recognise your camera.
