Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Cannot transfer video to Laptop computer through USB

Hi,
I'm having problem in transferring video to my laptop computer through USB port.

My laptop is Acer Aspire 1640, Pentium M Processor 1.73GHz Centrino, RAM512 MB, Hard drive60 GB, OS Windows XP Prof., Service Pack 2.

Though it is recognize by the laptop and I'm able to control the stop, play, rewind, forward buttons from the PC. However, when I start recording the video to my PC, in windows movie maker I get an error message "An error has occurred with your capture device. Check that it is configured properly and try again. If necessary, refer to the documentation for the capture device for more information." I also tried to use Powerdirector the software that came along with the Camcorder but it captures for only 4 seconds and stops. I'm pretty sure that I have installed correctly the software of the Camcorder as well as the video codec software. My laptop also supports USB2. I'm using USB cable to transfer video since the laptop has no firewire port.

However, I am able to transfer the video using my desktop computer in my office through its USB port even without installing the software that came along with the camcorder. I only use the windows movie maker software. The PC configuration is Pentium 4 2.5 GHz, RAM512 MB, OS Windows XP Prof., Service Pack 2.

Please some body help me to solve this problem.

Thank you and more power to all experts.

I bought my JVC GR-270 (same as GR-290, but no remote) in 2004. On page 45, top right hand column of either manual (the original and the on-line one on this site) the claim is made that "Using USB cable it is possible to do the following things: Transfer still/MOVING images recorded on a tape to a PC." After many unsuccessful attempts at trying to use the USB cable for transferring moving images to my PC, I called JVC technical dept. They told me that the MANUAL WAS WRONG....and that in order to transfer MOVING images, I needed to purchase a FIREWIRE cable. Indeed, that is the solution. However, If your PC has no FIREWIRE input jack you must also purchase a FIREWIRE adapter card. Don't skimp on these items, get a well shielded cable and a name brand adapter.
What burns me is that I looked at the manual in the store and only purchased the camera because it claimed that the enclosed USB cable would work for moving images. JVC denies responsibility, even though their manual is clearly wrong, and they know it.

Try getting a ExpressCard or if you have a later modle try a CardBus that has firewire then use a firewire cadle to transfer the video

How do I transfer files from old computer to new


You can't transfer programs, programs have to be reinstalled.

You can copy things like your My Documents Folder, My Pictures, My Videos, and Favorites to a usb flash drive or an external drive then put the drive into the usb port of the new computer and copy them to the appropriate folders (Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, etc).

I want to capture video from DS65 to my laptop through USB


Hi,
To transfer video from your camcorder to your computer you will need a firewire cable (IEEE 1394). Only with this cable you will be able to transfer video.

Please note that you will also need a firewire port on your computer. if you don't have one then you can buy a firewire PCI card from your local copmuter shop.

After you have installed your firewire port and connected your camera, you will need a video processing system. Windows Movie Maker is on Windows XP and it comes for free. Run it, and click on capture to begin the transfer of your video to your laptop.

Please see the following link for more info and pictures on firewire cables and ports.

HOW CAN I PUT MY VIDEOS IN THE COMPUTER?


In order to transfer your videos to your computer or vice versa. You have following few options:-
1. Wifi - If your PC is having a bluetooth dongle or your laptop is having a bluetooth then you can pair your mobile through your pc or laptop and transfer your files through bluetooth.
2. Media. In order to transfer files without wifi you require a media that could be a usb cable connecting your phone to your pc or laptop. No additional softwares will be required if on connecting a popup is coming on your mobile asking you through which instance it should connect. Select data transfer mode and you can use your phone memory or your data card on your phone just like a pen drive. You can browse and copy whatever you like.

Can't upload to my laptop!


Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Your Camcorder does not supports a Wireless MIC. However, you can use a MIC with your Camcorder using the available Accessories Shoe port.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Transfer photos to laptop


You need to install itunes on your laptop so your iphone can sync with itunes and your computer.. this is used to tranfer music to your iphone, transfer photo's and video etc and also to check for new firmware versions/back up your phone.

You can however take photo's from your iphone without itunes if you connect your phone via usb and choose open folder to view files when the dialog pops up after you plug it in.. this has very limited use however you really need to install itunes. Itunes is a free download
