Re: why wont windows movie maker recognize my Jvc camera?
You may not have the drivers installed for the camcorder.
But then again you may not need any and it is something else.
Do you have USB 2.0 support on your PC.
Also if it is not a driver issue can you tell me what version of windows you are running please?

windows movie maker doesn't recognize mpeg 4 files. you need to use the software that came with your camcorder, or you might try downloading another player by doing a search for mpeg 4 editing programs. one other option is Media Converter (also media converter pro) there you can convert the files to avi or wmv that win movie maker can use.
You should be able to connect your camcorder to IEEE1394 socket on a computer, by means of a firewire cable, and capture the video with Windows Movie Maker or other software. Windows Movie Maker is part of WindowsXP and is already instaleed on PCs.
please go to the following website to get the software which in turn converts your .mod files to .wma(windows media player) file. and then your movie maker will be able to recognize those files. www.wma-mp3.net/download/wmamp3_converter.exe
No driver required for Windows XP. I simply plugged in the camera via FireWire. Windows automatically recognizes it as a digital video device. Then I started up Windows Movie Maker and followed the wizard to capture the movie from my digital video device. It was really easy.
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.
If it is a JVC digital camera (DVC or hard drive) you need to have the camera set to the "Play" mode, and turned on before plugging in the camera. Vista should recognize it as a digital source afterwards. You need to have a firewire or USB cable for the camera, and the port it plugs into needs to be recognized. Be sure you don't have an unrecognized device in /Control Panels/Device Manager/
I hope you are connecting the camera to the Fire wire port of the camera, if not, if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
