Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a JVC GRD90U camcorder. When I hook it up using the mini usb port on the left panel of the camcorder ... and the other end to a usb port on my computer, this is what happens. If I switch the slidebar switch on the camcorder to " DSC: , I can see on the camcorder screen that communication is established and I can then upload any still pics from the camcorder's media card.
My problem is when I attempt to upload video. I have a program on the computer called windows moviemaker. That program has a "capturing device" command line which when clicked on is suppose to search for a device. My camcorder is on " PLAY" ( right side rear 4 position switch) and the slide bar switch on the left side is at "VIDEO:. The computer always prompts that a capture device is not found. Please try again.
I have a Dell computer that is about 5 years old. I have Windows XP professional installed. Any help in this dilema is greatly appreciated.
The issue may be that your camera captures via FIREWIRE for video and USB for stills. It's a common issue. You'll need hook up your camera to a firewire port. If you don't have one due to this PCs age, you can always pick one up for about $20 and with XP pro, installation is practically plug and play.
But I'll tell you this. If you're computer is that old, do yourself a favor and double the memory. Video is a bandwidth hog and if you don't have enough RAM, you'll run into all sorts of dropped frames and synch issues.
It's also probably time to start looking to upgrade that Dell.
