Computer won't recognize Gr-DLV 300 with firewire connection
Both JLIP Video Producer and Windows Movie Maker fail to detect a connection between our Toshiba Satellite 1905-S303 our GR-DVL300. We are using a firewire cable and have followed instructions. Do we need a video capture card?
Our goal is to transfer our camcorder video to our computer.

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.
This camcorder model has the firewire port. Please check the manual carefully to find its location.
You need to switch on the camera. Keep it in play/ edit mode.
Open movie maker. Its should detect the camera now.
If not, try installing the software which came with the camcorder. It might have any drivers.
No driver required for Windows XP. I simply plugged in the camera via FireWire. Windows automatically recognizes it as a digital video device. Then I started up Windows Movie Maker and followed the wizard to capture the movie from my digital video device. It was really easy.
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.
if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
We confirmed the following software and drivers compatibility with Windows 95, 98, and ME.
JLIP Video Capture
JLIP Video Producer
JLIP Video Player
GV-PT2 Printer driver & Capture
GV-DT1 Printer driver & Capture
None of the above software will be compatible with Windows NT. At this time there are no drivers available to make these software programs compatible with Windows NT. There is an update available for the Picture Navigator software to work with Windows 2000 and XP in the Customer Support area of this site. (When executing the update be sure to have Picture Navigator closed).
The following versions of software and drivers will work with Windows XP.
Picture Navigator 184.108.40.206
JLIP Video Capture 3.1
JLIP Video Producer 2.0
JLIP Video Player 1.0
Card Navigator 1.0
buy that wire, check ur camcorder if it has 6pin or 4pin for firewire then check ur pc if it has firewire card...if not you have to purchase the ieee1394card. install it then connect your camcorder to pc through firewire and that will be it.. u also need to have a software for video capturing and editing like adobe, roxio, pinnacle , etc...hope that helps.
