Make sure the computer contains the drivers for the camera.
If you would be using FireWire (IEEE1394) it would be no problem.

Check the box the camera came with (or Online) and install the required software. If you have done all that and it still doesn't work try to change the port you connect to. If it still doesn't work you may have an incompatibility issue or a corrupt USB driver which is resolved by reinstalling your computer USB drivers and camera drivers.
Hope it helps.

This camera requires a FireWire (IEEE1394) connection. There is no software or driver.

Please state exactly what the PC error says.
If you connected the camera to the PC before you loaded the JVC drivers then the PC assigned a generic driver to the camera's USB ID CODE. This is now married to this USB code every tine you connect the camera. Since it is not what the camera needs to operate it will not operate. The only way to correct this is to uninstall these drivers. The best way to do this is to go into the device manager and expand the list for the USB devices. While you are watching the screen plug the camera into the PC. The USB line that shows up is the camera. Hightlight this line, right click, go to properties, go to drivers, click the box that says un-install. When the operation finishes the line in the USB section will go away. Unplug the camera from the PC. Take the CD that came with the camera and insert it. It will automatically load the drivers, you may not even realize something happened.The other software on the CD is the movie editor and player. You should install these because the instruction book references these programs.
Now plug the camera into the PC. It MUST recognize the camera as a JVC camera and show you that it found new hardware with the model number in this box. If the new hardware wizard opens up go thru the steps and select that you have the disk and then direct it to the drive where the cd is. let it find the drivers on the disk and load them. If the PC does not say the model number of the camera when you plug it in everytime you plug it in it was not loaded properly. If all of this is beyond your scope of PC knowledge then you should ask someone with more PC skills to help you.

I can't figure out how to download video from my JVC GR-D90U Camcorder to my computer through it's usb cable. It is a mini DV camcorder that uses mini video tapes.


From the JVC manual "This camcorder can transfer still images to a PC via USB". There is no mention of video transfer via USB so it seems it is not supported.

My JVC GR-DA30U didn't come with a usb connector.


you need an iLink cable. Also known as a mini-i400 or Firewire Mini. If you have standard 6-pin Firewire (IEEE1394) on your PC, you can get a converter cable which is i400 one end, 1394 the other.

Hi Heidi.

Be sure your camera is on when you have connected it to your PC. Then you have to put it in Play mode and rewind the tape if it's a USB cable you connect with. Start Windows Movie Maker and test.

The following link could be useful http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/default.mspx

Can't transfer video from cam to pc


You can't capture the video with a USB cable. The USB cable and software that came with the camcorder are only used to transfer still images.

To transfer video you'll need a DV cable (also known as a Firewire cable) and some additional software. I use Scenalyzer Live. It's not free, but you can download a demo copy to see if you like it before you buy it. Here's a link to the Scenalyzer website:

http://scenalyzer.com/

If you have the JVC manual you should read page 41. If you don't have the manual you can download it here:

http://www.devicemanuals.com/guide/Digital%20Camcorder/JVC/JVC-Compact-VHS-w-LCD-Screen-Camcorder-GR-D370AS-User's-TWpJME56VT.html

The download link is about half way down the left side. It's a little difficult to find, but it's there.

Lastly, all this assumes that your computer has a Firewirre port. Most new computers will have one, but if you do not you'll need to buy and install a Firewire PCI card. Let us know if you need more help.

Can't transfer video from cam to pc


While capturing the video you have to change the Video mode to PAL or NTFS mode & store the Video's in Memory card,

When you want to transper the video's, remove the card or directly plug in to the camera to Computer USB port

Now you can transper the Movie's easily..

Try it out.

good luck..
