My JVC GR-D244U shows on screen "Eject and reinsert tape unit in safeguard mode" I ejected and reinserted the tape numerous times, and still the it says the same thing, It will not record. I even ejected and went to menu to reset, but nothing happened. Please help.

I have had the same problem...usually had success by taking off the battery, putting it back on, turning the power off and on, etc.  It has always gone back in eventually.  I also tried re-charging the battery and replacing.  Could this be an old battery problem?  Mine is 4.5 years old.

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????

If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.

If it's a JVC GR-D72, then it's MiniDV. Connect the camcorder via firewire to your PC
