I want to make (burn) a CD of the video footage on my Camcorder. What do I need to download the footage to my Computer running Windows XP. All that I have, is the A/V cable that came with the camcorder. Is there a connector cable with a USB termination at the opposite end and will it be of any use?

You will require a firewire cable.
Usually a 4 pin to 6 pin cable. 4 pin to camera 6 pin to computer, assuming you PC has a fireiwre socket.
PC computer have Movie Maker as part of the OS.
Connect with the above cable and you should be good to go.
It would probably be simpler to buy a card reader. This will also be easier in the sense that you won't be powering the camera while the card is in the computer with the card reader. Make sure that the camera is turned on while it is connected to the computer and you're trying to sync it.
I believe you are trying to download video footage from your camcorder onto your pc. ( and not the other way around- from pc to camcorder).
If thats the case plug in your USB cable supplied with the camcorder onto your PC and which will register as a new drive on your system. For some cameras you need a special video capture card which needs to be plugged into your PC to allow video to be downloaded. An example is the IEE- firewire series. You will also require a simple video capture software to capture and save the video footage as a workable PC file. Try reading up on the brochure which came with your camera which I believe will provide more details. Normally video cams will come with such software and the necessary cables. Recent camcorders come with a harddisk & it is much simpler to download as such systems are recognized by a PC as just another new drive on the system. Try out the above and I believe you will be able to do it. Bye
This camcorder should not require a driver in order to capture the footage. Start up your capture software, power-up the camera in VCR mode and then connect the Firewire cable. It should then allow you to playback the tape and capture the contents. Here is the manual online: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/LYT1353-001A.pdf If you need a simple program to capture the footage look to: http://www.virtualdub.org/
Your video-editing software (including Windows Movie Maker) should also capture the footage.
