Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Transferring slides from JVC GR-D72US to pc

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.

Need a jvc gr-d71u driver for windows

Drivers are not neccessary when transferring VIDEO on "GR-D" camcorders. All you need is a firewire cable (4pin to 4pin) or (4pin to 6pin) depending on your computer. Once connected, you can use free DV EDITING SOFTWARE like, Windows Movie Maker or iMovie. USB ports on these cameras are reserved for transferring PICTURES ONLY

I had exactly the same problem. I was using a USB cable, as I had done with Windows XP. However, when I tried using a DV cable instead it worked no problem at all, and i was able to use Windows Movie Maker, so no need to install ImageMixer. Hope this helps. Tony

JVC gr-270 drivers

Try look up JVC miniDV USB. There are many drivers, you just need to try until you get one that works. USB will only transport over still pics, you need firewire for video transfer.

Uploading a video clip to my computer

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.

The memory card is strictly for still photos. The tape is strictly for video. Transferring video tot he PC requires a firewire card on your PC (for direct cable connection).
