Transfer Video from JVC Mini DV toa Gateway MT6728 Notebook (with Vista)

I've been told now that I need a firewire cable to tranfer video but I don't have a port on my Gateway laptop for this. There is a little card slot but I don't know if it's a firewire card slot or not. I emailed Gateway and they said all I needed was a RJ45 cable for ethernet. That doesn't sound right.. can someone please help me?!?

    That's a great idea.... my biggest issue is that I don't know what is compatible with my Gateway Notebook. I can get the cord for my camcorder with no problem, but I am most concerned what will work with Gateay and with Windows Vista... am I crazy, or is this a concern?

Hi there

what you can do is go to a electronics shop and have the camera looked and ask for a firewire converter. im sure they have lots of converters. be sure also that the converter fits perfectly to your camera.

hope this helps

I can not tranfer video files from JVC GR-DVX 400EG to pc.


If you have a DVD recorder/player with DV in put, you can buy a FireWire 4 pin male cable from a good audio/video shop which can connect to the DV socket on the camcorder. I got mine from Maplins only last week and at last I am saving the tapes to DVD.
Follow the DVD recorder booklet instructions and note every time you stop recording it will be saved as a separate file.

Do I need a fire wire card for PC


Hi a firewire input is different from an 1394 port. For the laptop you can buy an firewire interface.

JVC GR-DVP7 - Video to PC / Firewire Cable ... where can I get one?


Best Buy has a 6 pin to 4 pin firewire cable. You will need some software as well to copy to the hard drive such as Pinnacle Studio if you don't have on already.

Once the cable is plugged in and turned on Studio will detect the camera and run the program.

JVC camera software GR-D70 for windows vista


Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.

The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire.
Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.

USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera.
If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.

The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)

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)
