Re: how do i copy files from a digital video camera to a...
The software provided with camcorder is good only for photos, not video. I wonder why JVC doesn't provide support for copying video to computer or DVD. I checked the manual, and it talks about above capturing video to old VHS format. For copying video, you need third party software, and probably other cables, like KWorld. I am still playing around. No luck so far.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
Thanks very much for responding to my problem. It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing. steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally. 2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7). 3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.
Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file. 2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy. 3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file. 5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck. It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.
Some cameras have a multi-use cable which can be used for both data transfer or copy, and video output. Most cameras I have worked with usually have two cables, one for video playback and the other for data transfer or copy to a computer or other device. Most all cameras today use the convince of the standard computer USB access. Most cameras have a cover made of either rubber or plastic which can be folded back to reveal connectors for mini-USB and video outlets. The appropriate cables must be used to connect to video or a computer or other device. It is advisable to read your user manual for information on usage of the video and the data transfer cables and the software, if that is what you need. I also suggest to skip all that and use a card reader, no more hassle. A card reader will give you more freedom without having to install software to see your photos or other files.
Looks as if the usb device of your camera? is malfunctioning. Try putting in the MMC/SD/MS Duo card into a dedicated card reader to get the pictures and videos or in the other camera.
In this instance your USB cable is the medium connecting the usb device (camera) to your pc. As the other camera and same cable are working fine this means that both the cable and your pc's usb port are working properly as well. Time for you to change the device from which you are trying to read information from.
You can buy a USB-HDD unit and use it to copy over all your files, program files, documents, including JPG video. You can then copy them to the laptop. The unit is also a good way to backup your computer files in case it crashes and you don't loose all your data. Good Luck, RAC
Please discard that the USB port or the USB cable are defective. You can do it if you try to hook your camera in other personal computer using the same USB cable. If it works, then follow the next instructions.
Connect your camera to the PC thru the USB cable and turn it on.
If you are using Windows, go to the Control panel - System - Hardware - Devices - and check if there is any device that was not recognized by Windows. Such devices are marked with a yellow question mark.
If so, get into the device item and with right mouse click, select to update the device driver.
If there was not unrecognized device, then you can unistall your USB port driver and then run a change hardware status to recognize the USB port again, then run the update driver routine.
Hi Taboria! You will need to download a USB driver for your camcorder in order to transfer stuff. Please let me know the Brand and Model Number of your Camcorder so that i can tell you where to find them..
