Re: Software

You don't have to have the software to upload to the computer, however you do have to have the software to view it on the computer.  I have had this camera since it first came out and I had to purchase software to convert the video files to a format my computer could view.  I have a Mac, and I use DropDV.  It works fine and lets me edit in iMovie which comes with the Mac.  
On the PC if you lose the software like I did after a computer crash, you will have to purchase the software separately.

SOURCE: Uploading video from sony dcr-dvd201

That's one of the inherent disadvantages of using a direct-to-DVD Camcorder.
2 solutions that immediately come to mind are
1. Export the unedited video from imagemixer or whichever proprietary software you're currently using. This is done in the same manner you'd otherwise output video to digital files. Chances are, it'll be under File>Export. Output the video as a quicktime, MPEG, AVI, WMV, or other widely accessible video file system, and it should be easily opened in other software.
2. Use a DVD ripping program, such as Free DVD ripper from GoBuySoftware ( for PC or Mac the Ripper for OS X (, both free, to export to an exchangeable format.
I hope this does the trick! If not, please let me know what specific gear you're using :)

How do you get to upload video's onto the Computer? Is it possible?

Use the provided USB cable that came with your camcorder. You'll need to install the software and drivers from a CD that came with the camcorder into your computer - if you don't have it, go to the JVC website and download the files. Yes it is possible to upload videos.

We can't upload the recordings to our home computer.

hi there,it seems u have not installed the software onto your computer. just install the software for your camcorder with the help of a CD that u might have recieved along with the it. then plug it through USB and its ready to transfer the videos.

if you want a codec of a video just download this file. almost all videos will play on this codec.

i have a camcorder just like that and im using ULEAD MOVIE MAKER to upload or save my videos came from that camcoder. you can save it in any various video like avi, divx, mp4, vcd, dvd, etc... you dont need a codec to play it on your computer. it will play as soon as you save it. after that if still didnt play just download the software that i put on the link above. if you cant get the software just try to ask me and i will show you where you can get without any expense. hope that helps!

Software Required

You can run that same disk on Windows Vista. When you put it in, the computer will tell you that it won't work with this OS. It then gives you a possibility were you can create a virtual state where windows vista manipulates the program. So the program then thinks it's running on WINDOWS XP but you can install it on your vista.
