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?

    OK if you are running Xp you probably are running USB 2.0 ports.

    Do you connect thro the docking bay or direct from the cam via USB?

    If you right click on one of the files from your cam and go to properties.

    You will see file type.

    M2U00006.MPG

    Or something similar.

    Can you tell me what yours says.

    it could be the fact that your software is expecting different file type than you are saving as.

    Let me know and I will try to help you further.

I cannot open it with windows movie maker i use xp and won't work. It say's "it is not a valid windows movie maker project"


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.

I can't download video from videocam to pc.


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.

Trying to load my movies into Windows Movie Maker but it doesn't recognize the .MOD for which my movies are backup in...how do you change the setting to allow Windows Movie Maker to see them?- Guest


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.

I have jvc GR d720 dv camcorder but unable to connect .. driver required ... i have firewire send me in khairnar.abhijeet@gmail.com


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.

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,

JVC-Digital Video Camera


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/

Hope this helps. dband@charter.net

CPU not recognizing my camcorder


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.
