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

SOURCE: My computer no longer recognizes my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam when I plug it into a usb port.

Hi, I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer. and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista. If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.

Please go to the following link to download the drivers and manual for your JVC GR-D370.
After you install the drivers you would be able to download and view them on your PC.

If you would like to touch the pictures or make major changes you should consider buying additional software.Good Luck!!!!!!

SOURCE: uploading issues from JVC mini GR-D770U

As I understand it your computer needs either a firewire port or a 4 or 6 pin DV port depending on what type of connector is on the computer end of the DV cable you purchased.

I have got my uncle`s Mini Dv JVC GR-DVL300 EA without driver to connect to my laptop running with Vista please also advise me where/how can get a cable to connect that camera to my laptop thank you

The cable is a firwire 4-6 or 4-4 pin cable. Check your computer for the type of firewire socket it has. Most newer laptops have 4 pin.
These are available at most places that sell computer gear.

We bought our gr d370u camcorder at pawn shop but my computer only sees the memory card not the video do i need driver for this or dv cable?

Dv cable is available in the market, not that difficult to find this thing, buy a good quality cable, sometimes this causes trouble in connecting. Good Luck

Im trying to transfer viedeo from a JVC GR-DVM96 vis usb to mini usb. Do I need to use the dv port?

Hi, connect the cam and PC using 4 pin firewire cable (not USB cable).
Switch on the cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.

Record directly from jvc model GR-- D370U Digital Video Camera to my pc

Sorry, but it's not possible to record directly to a PC. Windows movie maker will only record from a tape. Please use a quality cable like Belkin, I have had issues with the cheaper firewire cords.
Good luck

Hi Heidi.

Be sure your camera is on when you have connected it to your PC. Then you have to put it in Play mode and rewind the tape if it's a USB cable you connect with. Start Windows Movie Maker and test.
