Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I need help in setting up Windows XP Professional so that I can upload still pics from my JVC GR-D72US video camera to the C:/my documents/my pictures subdirectory. I am using an USB cable connection.
When I connected the camera via a usb cable, heard the connection tone, and the camera lcd displayed on the screen USB MODE. There were two icons, one labeled "PC" and the other labeled "M". There was a message
on the bottom that said "accessing files", and two sets of arrows displayed
between the two icons.
That's as far as it gets. Nothing else happens, and the two icons remain on the lcd. I looking at windows explorer (or my computer) I do not see any
drive letter designated for my dv camera. I then right clicled on my
computer, selected "Manage" then selected Disk Management. There, the
installed devices includes a drive "G" which is designated as my dv camera. I have two 250gb hdd's that are labeled C, D, & E, and a dvd burner labeled F, so G would be the proper drive letter for the dv camera.
Therefore I conclude that the pc and the dv camera are "shaking hands" but are not completing the connection. At this point, I don't know what to try
next. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
The problem most likely is that another device has the G drive reserved. So in Disk Management try to change the camra to another driver letter to see it will show up in My Computer. The link below will help you do this.
