Hi Sreeki,
You may have solved this problem already but I had the same problem some time ago, so the advice will be a little vague.

From memory the issue is something to do with corruption of a directx file so you could just try re-loading directx.

But the way I found a solution was to try and capture video using windows movie maker and you will find the video capture also fails using this software. However, windows returns an error message (which I cannot remember), and I did a search on Google or something for this error message and eventually found the solution.

It was related to directx and there was a small file that had to be run to repair it.

Hope this helps and I will continue searching for the problem I am now having with my camera not accepting a tape and returning the error message relating moisture......

see this topic and contact the supplier .God bless you

FireWire connection to computer keeps getting dropped. Check with manufacturer to make sure you have the latest driver and firmware updates for your camera and computer. Always turn the camera's power on before making a FireWire connection. Disconnect the FireWire cable before turning the camera off. Use the camera's AC adapter when making FireWire connections. Try a different FireWire cable and try connecting the camera to a different computer. FireWire cables and ports sometimes fail.

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.

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.

Hi i don't know how to connect my PV-GS29 to my pc what should i do? d u need a firewire to connect?


Yes ... you need a firewire port if you want to capture your video to the PC....search online for a firewire pci card or if you have a laptop you may have one already installed if not you can purchase one in pcmia format to capture your footage to pc.

Step by step instructions to transfer recorded videos from jvc gr-d370u to Pc, please.


First, you need a Firewire connection (also called IEEE 1394). Most of PC computers don't have it, including mine. I bought a cheap Firewire card and installed it into an empty PCI slot, costed about $15.
I hope you don't have the USB cable and the firewire cable plugged into your computer at the same time. That can break things.

With the firewire cable plugged into the DV port of the camcorder and the firewire port of the computer and the camcorder is in Play mode (and plugged into the wall AC power with the power adapter), are you saying that when you launch MovieMaker and "Capture", the video camera is not recognized?

There are only two conditions that can cause this:

1) The firewire400 port on the computer is not working properly (how do you know it is working?). If you are using Vista Home Basic, chances are good that the IEEE1394a firewire port drivers were never loaded... so, that will be your first step. Get that port working and you'll be ready to go.

2) The DV port on the camcorder is not working properly. This could be for several reasons, but lets hope the DV port was not fried if you ever had the USB and firewire connections to your computer at the same time... Reset the camcorder to factory defaults by disconnecting all cables, removing the rechargeable battery and removing the little date/time button battery inside the camcorder. Wait for about 20 minutes. Put the button battery back in, then put the rechargeable battery back on. Set the date and time. Connect the firewire cable to the DV port, connect the AC power adapter to the wall, connect the other side of the firewire cable to the firewire port on the computer, launch MovieMaker - will it "Capture" from the video tape?

Anyone you know nearby with an Apple Macintosh and iMovieHD? You will need a 4-pin to 6-pin firewire cable and the AC power adapter. If it works with the Mac, we know it is not the camcorder's DV port. If it does not work, chances are good the camcorder's firewire port is bad.
Hope this was helpful?

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 to make dvd ,vcd from mini dv without any firewir port


You need and AV capture card to do that if you dont have a firewire port.

Use the supplied AV cable that came with the camcorder, connect the audio (left/white, right/red and yellow/video) to the capture card AV inputs and start capturing. You can make the setting on the capture card, whether it should be captured in DVD or VCD format

Make sure you have a DV cable also know as a firewire cable. You will need some software to capture the video from your camera to your hard drive. Pinnacle Studio is an inexpensive system for capturing, editing, and producting videos to DVD.

Make sure you have a firewire port in the back of your computer.
