Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Win XP sp2 not recognizing gr-d70

I have seen similar posts to this issue other times but no fixes have been posted. I have a jvc gr-d70u digital camcorder. I was able to connect via ieee 1394 to my win xp laptop and actually started to download video from the tape. It then stopped and I haven't been able to get it to recognize since. I have been unable to find a driver for the device to see if this would help, I found a MS patch but that hasn't made any improvement either. I am using windows movie maker, could use some suggestions. Thanks.

    I have the same problem, only using pinnacle software. There was some forum that suggested downloading JLIP software but that hasnt corrected any problems. I apparently CAN access the (stills) memory card but not the video tape for capture...

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!

IEEE 1394 doesn't work like USB so it probably won't show up in devices. What you would do is go to a video editing/burning program and click on a capture video option. The program accesses the video camera and you can choose what video you wish to record onto your computer.

SOURCE: Error message ''condensation operation failed''

1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.

SOURCE: Need disk software for jvc gr-d70u camcorder

You don't have to have the software that came with your camera. There are many video capture programs out there. I use Nero Express, but Movie Maker might work too.

I have been unable to import from my camera to my computer for three years, thinking that the problem was the camera. I would plug in the Firewire cord that came with the camera and would get nothing, even on other computers. As a last resort, I got a new Firewire cord today. As soon as I plugged it in and turned the unit to Play, the computer recognized my camera!!!! I am SO excited! When your computer recognizes the camera, it will bring up the programs on your computer that are most likely able to allow you to import the video.

The problem the entire time was the cord! The cord that came with my camera is now in the trash, and I can finally import videos!

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,
