As it's a DV (Digital Video) camera you should use the IEEE 1394 Firewire socket if it has one. Then use a DV capture program.
If you dont have a Firewire port on your PC you can buy a card like this one which will connect you Camera to your PC.

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

JVC GR-DX 35 AH how to import vedeo to pc


If you have a FireWire, connect it to the port for the FireWire (with a port for USB Mini-pin beside it). It is hidden under a plastic clip cover on your right on its side, if you are facing it. If you are using Windows XP, it should automatically launch Windows Movie Maker. From there you can upload it to your computer as an AVI file uncompressed. For 1 hour video tape, it will take-up about 12GB of harddisk space. You can compress it later, probably Pinnacle Studio 12, if you have one.

Hi, my JVC mini DV Video Camera has fussy lines through any recordings and says the head needs cleaning. I've tried using the miniDV head cleaner tapes - but to no avail. Have you any...


It could be video head dust or the tape guide were out of alignment or it had been magnetized
In any case you should bring to JVC service center or JVC itself to repair this problem. They must connect your CAM into computer to check up and realignment DO NOT use the tape cleaning it won't help you sometime it cause more trouble such broken video head

JVC GR-D91U MINI DV NO POWER SO CAMERA WILL NOT WORK AND TAPE WILL NOT EJECT REPLACED BATTERY AND STILL HAVE PROBLEM ALSO WHEN CHARGER IS PLUGGED IN --CAHRGING LIGHT DOES NOT GO ON


I haven't exactly fixed this problem as of yet but I do know what is causing it. The tape that you last put in is defective and to keep from causing more problems the camera has shut down. The problem is that the only way to fix it is to remove the mini-dv. I am looking for a tool small enough to remove the screws that will allow me to manually extract the defective mini-dv. I am hoping this works, and will let you know what I discover.

I Have a jvc digital video camera Gr-DVL1020 and i am triing to download the video tapes on to the computer but it will only do the still images. Is that all it can do? Can you not put the movies on too?


hi again
right............. here we go
your tapes are of the dv type so you need a firewire lead. there is a socket on your camcorder marked ilink or dv. you will need to check your p.c. to see if it has a firewire port. it will be on the back and looks like a fat usb port. if it hasn't got one you can buy a firewire card and fit it yourself, its
fairly straight foreward. both items can be sourced from maplins or most computer shops for about £20. software is also needed and you should have got some with the camcorder. its usually not very good so i would suggest you try pinnacle studio 8 or 9, this you can get from e bay for £10 to £15
its very easy to use and less complicated than adobe premiere for instance.
if you get stuck contact me through this post.

I have a jvc model number GR-D770U AND IM TRYING TO TRANSFER what is on the cassette to my computer with the usb cable how do i do it.


Your camcorder is only able to transfer still pictures with usb,if you would like to transfer a video you must use a DV input on a computer.If you would like instructions on how to transfer still pictures using the usb.Install software that was included with camcorder then make sure your using the adapter instead of battery otherwise you may run out of power,then make sure your unit is turn off then plug in usb cable to computer.After plug unit in turn on camcorder and use software provided to transfer pictures.Never pull out memory card when plug in to computer and make sure you do not unplug cable while arrow signs pointing right and left on view screen.I hope this helps you out happy picture taken.
