Question about JVC GR-D32 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Cannot download video to movie maker

I cannot transfer video from my camcorder (JVC GR-D32) to my computer. I am running Windows Vista Home, and using a IEEE firewire cable.

I keep getting the message "The video was not imported correctly. Verify that the digital video tape is not blank, and try again." I have spent all morning trying to figure this out. Shouldn't this be easier? I have unchecked (and rechecked) the video filters. Still not working.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

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 can't download video from videocam to pc.

You should be able to connect your camcorder to IEEE1394 socket on a computer, by means of a firewire cable, and capture the video with Windows Movie Maker or other software. Windows Movie Maker is part of WindowsXP and is already instaleed on PCs.

Downloading Video to my Computer from a JVC GR-SXM920

You need a video capture card that supports analog inputs. Connect the video and audio out jacks from the camera to the computer. You will need some sort of software also. The Movie Maker software that comes with Windows XP would work.
The little cord that came with the camera will not transfer the video.

Transfer movie from mini tape to computer - JVC.....well, hello i found that people have the same problem i do i;ve got this JVC digital camera GR-D770U...and unfirtunately i don't have a software disc...

You can download user manual in PDF format from this link:
but that's not a point. The point is that you can use any video editing software (with no driver), that accepts capture mode starting from standard Windows Movie Maker for beginners to CyberLink PowerDirector, Ulead DVD MovieFactory or similar. This can be made by plugging your camcorder to PC via USB or FireWire (iLink, IEEE1394). Of course you can record to Digital Video Unit Equipment (DVD recorder) if you have one. Good luck!

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.

its true that normally you don't need to download the driver, however when it does pop up, i'd say go here and just download the zip file for the drivers.

Windows vista will not rcognize my camcorder

Make sure Vista is updated, plug in the firewire on the computer side first then to the camera. Movie maker should start right up!
Good luck

Use firewire cable to coonect to a computer. Transfer the movie from camcorder to the computer (for example using Microsoft Movie Maker - included in Windows XP). Then you can edit it in Movie Maker and save the final movie on the hard disk, DVD or back on DV cassette.

JVC mini DV.. video upload

I've got the same camera and I use "Windows Movie Maker" to transfer my recordings to DVD's. The program came with Windows Vista, but you may be able to download it from .
There's another program that also came with Windows Vista Home Premium. It's "Muvee Auto Producer 5.0" and YES! I realize that's not how to spell "MOVIE", that's how they spell it. Anyway, although I haven't used it yet, it will transfer your home movies to DVD or you can save them to the hard drive. I prefer the "Movie Maker". It's pretty easy and it has some pretty neat features. You'll like it too. Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. I know how you feel! I was in the same boat as you, when I first got that camera...NO WAY TO SAVE MY HOME MOVIES AND COULDN'T FIND ANYONE TO TELL ME HOW TO DO IT OR WHAT SOFTWARE TO GET.
Just so you know, everything you need, to do what you're wanting to do...I already installed and ready to go in the "HP Pavilion a1710n", including the FireWire Port. Or, you could get Windows Vista Home Premium...but I don't care for it myself.
Good Luck To You,
