Question about JVC GR-D244 DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Computer is not recognizing the camcorder

K I'll first start out saying that this is not the exact camcorder model I have but it is very similar. I have the Gr-d295 (if it makes much of a difference)

Now my problem:

I just recently bought a firwire cable to take my videos off the mini dv and put them on my computer. After hooking every thing up and turning the camcorder on I noticed it wasn't being recognized by my computer. A little frustrated I started fooling around and checking out multiple sites and still nothing worked.
I gave up and decided that my firewire port must be messed up and opted to go the usb route instead.
So I went out and bought the appropriate cable. For the second time I hooked my camcorder up to my computer and again nothing. I checked and, yes, my usb ports are 2.0. The cables are all hooked up. The camcorder in plugged in and on and still ...nada. The computer doesn't even know the camcorder is plugged in.
I have been working at this for hours now and it's getting me a bit depressed.

I'd appreciate any bit of help that I can get

SOURCE: How to transfer the video in Mini DV to my computer

I suggest getting the PCI IEEE 1394 also known as FireWire card. Most of the time these Firewire card comes with a Video editing software but verify because you will need some form of video editing s/w to record the video. After recording then you can edit it however you like and transfer to DVD/etc. Always a pain in the as to edit video. I've done it a couple of times. So have fun. I still have not manage to find a Video editing s/w that will do a 5.1 audio or multiple audio tracks (similar to switching between languages)

You need a video editing program to see it. Pinnacle studio works with your camcorder.

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.

cheers,

sack whoever told you not to use firewire - buy a card for your PC and cable suitable for the camera (likely to end up being a 1394 to iLink). USB is wholly unsuitable (1.0/1.1 is too slow and 2.0 not stable enough) for transferring video at the bitrates that come from DV. Firewire is designed almost exclusively for high-bandwidth applications such as this.

Camcorder is not recognised by my computer.


If you have the disc that came with the camera install it on the computer. It should then be recognized. If not then click here and it will take you to the website to download the drivers.

Click on where it says software and drivers, then enter just the model of your camera (VL-Z5E). After that it should be all gravy.

Please go to camera Menu and enable USB stream option. Computer will recognize camcorder.

Usb plug is not recognized


The encryption needs to be changed. A three letter encryption should show up on the player screen even if not recognized by the computer. It will be usually MSC or Mxx, ect. You need to change it, this can be done somewhere within the menu but I am unsure with this exact model right now where this option is but with a little searching you should be able to find it. If you still can't find it, let me know and I will grab a similar version and figure out what it should be listed under.

good luck

Win XP sp2 not recognizing gr-d70


I had a similar issue. I had never been able to download video to computer because the computer never recognized the camera. As a last resort, I bought a new firewire cord today -- and my computer recognized the camera as soon as I turned the camera to play! It was four years in the making (I thought there was something wrong with my camera this entire time!), but it was just a cord issue. Now the cord that came with the camera is in the trash, and I can download video. I did buy an (XP) driver for I think $8 online, but I'm not sure whether that really had anything to do with it (I have SP3). I bought it from www.helpdrivers.com, and it was called the JVC / GR-D70U USB Mass Storage Class Driver + G.726 Decoder / Windows 98-98Se-Me-2000-XP, Item# 3021598. Downloaded it from the site. Hope that helps!

I had the same problem. You have to have a computer with a firewire port and use a firewire.
