Question about JVC GR-D201U Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Transferring from DV tape to DVD

I am trying to transfer video from my JVC-GRD201U to a DVD. I am using a MacBook, and it requires a Firewire connection to do this. Unfortunately, the camera doesn't have a Firewire port, only a small USB port. Do you have any advice on how to make this work?

Are you sure you aren't looking at a MiniFirewire connection? It looks similar to MiniUSB.

Normal size Firewire has 6 pins, mini Firewire has 4 pins. At first glance you may think it is MiniUSB, but MiniFirewire has a bump in the connector. It looks like this:

You'll just need to get a Firewire cable with the appropriate ends on it. Warning- MiniFirewire doesn't stay in well, so place the camcorder where it won't get bumped while transfering video.

I have an apple laptop, how do I transfer from my camcorder to a dvd on my apple.


You do not need drivers to get the footage from tape to a Mac. You do require a firewire cable and use iMovie or Final Cut to capture.

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.

I AM UNABLE TO COPY VIDEOS FROM TAPE TO PC


Welcome to FixYa!

Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.

Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.

This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.

Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.

Here's a sample video.

My Macbook Pro also did not detect the connected GR-DVP9AG


The old Camcorders (which using tapes) need to use firewire 1394 connection (4 t0 4 or 4 to 6) to transfer video to PC/ Mac.

The memory card is strictly for still photos. The tape is strictly for video. Transferring video tot he PC requires a firewire card on your PC (for direct cable connection).

Hi, Since videos are taped in DV format, you need a firewire card (IEEE-1394) and cable. These are cheap. May be your PC already has a firewire card. Just check. Windows XP recognises automatically the camcorder. Moreover, its integrated video capture/editing module, Windows Movie Maker, is very userfriendly. USB connection is only good for downloading still images (photos) to your PC. For more information, go to http://www.videohelp.com/. good luck

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.
