SOURCE: 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.

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

I want to transfer my videos taken on my Sharp


Hi,
You will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your computer. If you don't have such a port then you can buy a firewire pci card.

I want to connect my viewcam VL-Z3 to my latop, but I dont have a driver to support it. Can you help?


I had this problem too.
I searched the web high and low. Even wasted 2.99 on what claimed was the driver but turned out to only be instalation directions.

From what I understand, Sharp no longer supports camcorders, so obtaining the dirver from them is out of the question.

Connecting your camcorder to your computer via USB is only used to transfer photos from your SD on your camcorder. You cannot transfer video via this method.
Here`s what I did to solve the problem of not having the driver.
I got a $10 SD card reader for my computer and this solved the problem.

To transfer video from your VL-Z3U to your computer, all you need is a firewire cable .

Assuming that you have a firewire port on your computer, simply connect your camcorder to your computer via firewire, power up your camcorder and your computer should automaticly recognize your device.
You can now transfer video to your computer using your normal video capture/editing software.

Hope this helps

You may need what's called a 'firewire' port, which was the transfer port of choice for most DV models of the time.

My contact at the local RadioShack advised me that a DV-to-USB cable might work to allow transfers since firewire isn't really supported these days. I've not tested it myself though. The cable should cost less than $20.00... and if you're careful with the packaging, you could always return it if it proves useless.

HOWEVER, this is what you may need to allow correct transfer from the cam to the laptop:

Check, first, to make sure that the pc-end of the cable is, in fact, a firewire connector.
