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.

    If you mark it as Inappropriate u will not get any more help regarding this! Anyways i will give u 1 chance!
    The dv port is on your JVC camera not on the lnotebook ... You cannot copy directly from the USB port u can check your manual if you want ..the firewire card is a must if you want to transfer video from camera to comp...Get the fire wire card.. install it in the PCI slot of your note book and connect the DV port on the camera to the firewire card..Thats all..There is no such thing as a driver for JVC camera only firmware updates..You can check the support site if you want..

    You can my friend..I have check your notebook's config..If you need help locating the pci slot ask me..I will help u out..It has one extra PCI slot so dont worry.. also a firewire card will cost u only some 400Rs

Memory card is for still images/ pictures in this camcorder, I'm afraid.
You can take movie only on MiniDV tape and take still pictures on memory card.

Jvc gr-d395u video camcorder, move mini dv to computer

How it's supposed to work is to get a program that recognizes the camera, then the tape can be captures. Windows Movie Maker never supported it. In fact Microsoft doesn't even support it anymore. They have recommended using Pinncale Studio to work with DV cameras.

Once you install Studio, put the tape in, turn the camera on, Studio will load up.
