Question about JVC GC-A33 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera Help! I've had the JVC dual mode GC-A33 camera since it's been out which was awhile ago. My problem is this: I've gotten a new computer since then and I've had pictures on this camera for a few years now. I recently found this old thing after moving. I downloaded the software. I connected the camera via USB connection. I hit the tranfer button and it gives me a little something that says: Connection failed. Please check that 1) The camera is on, and set to PC mode 2) The USB cable is connected between PC and camera. Everything is fine and plugged in. It still won't let me tranfer photos. Can you help me?!

When it's plugged in, are you remembering to press the little (M) button to switch it to PC mode? If so, you might need to install the camera device. Go into your Control Panel and follow the steps under the Scanners and Cameras tab.

Good luck

    I have XP system.
    I connected the USB cable, turn on the camera and switch to PC mode with the M button.
    I tried to open the pictures with the sotware here -
    But all the programs (CardNavigator, Picture Navigator Windows® 2000 Professional and XP Update..) failed to connect.

You can download the USB driver from here:

You can also install their software from that link but I'd recommend using Picasa, Google's software instead. JVC don't seem to offer very good support for cameras.
