Question about JVC GR-DVM5 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I'd like to purchase a cable to transfer camera content to computer port. I need part number to order from some source. Can you help with identifying?
You need a Firewire (also called IEEE1394) cable to transfer DV to your computer. I buy mine here, usually:
There are 4-pin, 6-pin, and 9-pin Firewire connectors. Virtually all camcorders sport the 4-pin variety. Most PC laptops do as well (if there's a built-in port) so for camcorder interface, you would need a 4-pin to 4-pin cable. Most PC desktops that support Firewire use the 6-pin cable, so you would buy a 6-pin to 4-pin cable to hook up to the camcorder. Some Apple Macintosh computers and high-end PCs may support an 9-pin port as well, which is the newer, faster version of Firewire, but offers no advantage when talking to a camcorder.
If you haven't used your computer with a Firewire device before, do make sure you have one. These are available as PCI cards, PCIexpress cards, PC cards, and ExpressPort cards. It's pretty common for a modern desktop PC to have one or two Firewire ports. They're not uncommon on laptops, but do check.
