    I have an identical problem with my JVC digital cam corder on a brand new DELL Inspiron 530s running Vista 32 bit. The computer is slow to recognize the camera and when it does, it will control the camera but no video is transferred to the computer. I've spent the last 3 weeks with DELL support, both hardware and software and they are unable to solve the problem. To date, the PCI firewire card has been replaced and the hard drive was replaced, both by DELL. The problem persists. Now they tell me that the problem will need to be solved through Microsoft Tech Support. The camera works fine on the HP computer running the same version of Vista. The camera is recognized in the Device Manager under Imaging devices. I've tried three different software programs, Roxio, Studio 11 and Microsoft Movie Maker. It doesn't appear to be a program software problem but somewhere else. Hardware conflicts have been ruled out and all device drivers are the latest versions. The Vista operating system has been re-installed twice. This is just one of those mysteries that may never get solved.

    new JVC camera gz-mg330 is not being found when it is connected via USB

  • Figures Apr 18, 2008

    Exactly the problem that I have.

    My JVC camera is recognised by both Moviemaker and my vista version of Studio 10, yet the preview image is not shown and it won't capture any movie. Has anyone sorted this yet or is it just another one of Bill Gates complete rip offs with microsoft cheating it's customers?

The solution is to go to Device Manager locate the IEEE devices and delete the OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller, make sure that the IEEE card is out first. Put back the card and scan for hardware changes, it should pick up the card again, then switch on the camera and it should run the movie maker software. You may need to do it each time but it works.

INEED TO DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE TO CONNECT CAMCORDER TO MY PC TO CONVERT VEDIO TAPE RECORDED


To transfer video from this camcorder to a PC, you need a 1394 cable (also called a "Firewire" cable, and your PC must have a 1394/Firewire connector as well. You can use Movie Maker (which comes with Windows) as the capture software, or you can download Scenalyzer (shareware), Studio (from Pinnacle), or Vegas Movie Studio to do the capture.

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.
74dac6f.jpg
Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

to transfer video from your camcorder to your laptop you will need a firewire cable (ieee 1394). only with this cable you will be able to transer video.

Try to connect a panasonic PV-GS39 to my new HP notebook with Windows Vista


Hello. I also have the PV-GS39. I had the same problem as you have, here is what I DID to resolve my problem.

1.Go to: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Cameras-Camcorders/Camcorders/MiniDV-Camcorders/Drivers-Downloads/model.PV-GS39.D

the above link will take you RIGHT to the web page to download the PV-GS39 Software & Drivers that YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE. But if you have WINDOWS VISTA then you can use the WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER software that is ALREADY PRE-INSTALLED on your PC then you will NOT have to download the software from the above link.

2. You HAVE TO have a: FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD. I got mine at: Best Buy for: $53.86 with taxes. The name of this card is: DYNEX FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD.

3. You ALSO have to buy the CORD that connects to the PV-GS39 and the DYNEX FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD, the cord costs $36.79 ALSO at Best Buy.

I did ALL 3 of the above and now I'm copying my movies and videos from my tape in my camcorder onto my PC and BURNING the video onto DVD/CD Disks.

If you have any questions, you can email me at: uggyredmonster@comcast.net.

Jvc GR-D290


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
