There's a cable out in the market , it's a firewire and usb connector. you can use the usb for plug into your laptop and use the firewire to your video camera. Its a bit slow but that would help you.

You apparently have a Firewire (DV) cable.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. The way it works on my computer, the camera is controlled by the computer software through the Firewire cable.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As your Dell Windows PC did not come with this interface, you need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the internal expansion bus (PCI). This will come with a driver for the card. You can buy one of these cheaply on eBay or Amazon.

I'm afraid that there is chatter on the forums that these Firewire to USB convertors don't work properly with video cameras. That doesn't mean you can't try it, of course.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you have a Windows desktop PC, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card. No help on a laptop unfortunately.

How to transfer sony dcr-hc26 videos to pc using usb cable thanks


The Sony HDR-HC26 is a miniDV tape based camcorder. No surprises if you can't get USB streaming working.

ALL miniDV tape based camcorders transfer DV-format video by conneting the DV port of the HD camcorder to the Firewire port of your computer. USB won't work. The "DV" in miniDV = Digital Video. It is as digital as the digital video from flash memory or hard disc drive or DVD based camcorders - only better because it is not compressed as much as the others.

Memory cards are not the only way to store digital video - and while not as good as miniDV tape, memory cards are not as bad as DVD based consumer camcorders...

Firewire IEEE1394, DV and i.LINK are all the same thing.

If your computer does not have a firewire port, hopefully it has an available expansion slot (PCI for desktops; PCMCIA or ExpressCard for laptops), so you can add one.

What wire can i use to connect it to my computer?


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 pci firewire port. The firewire port looks like a usb port but its slightly bigger and on the one end is forming an angle.
Please see this link for details and photos.

My pc does not have a firewire port. How can I get the movies from the cam via USB? Thanks


You really need a firewire port for video work because it is a lot faster than USB. See if have a spare PCi slot in your computer then you could install a firewire card into it.

My GR-D77OU jvc camera


IEEE 1394 doesn't work like USB so it probably won't show up in devices. What you would do is go to a video editing/burning program and click on a capture video option. The program accesses the video camera and you can choose what video you wish to record onto your computer.

I want to capture movie from dv tape to compaq presario notebook


You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394 firewire card in one of your PCI slots.

JVC GR-D270U- transfering pics from tape to computer


if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.

Audio drop out and/or static sound Thanks to anyone who has taken a look at my issue with audio cutting out. JVC has always been a brand I have confidence in, and I believe I picked this camera up when those recording to an internal hard drive were out of my range. Last summer, I received a fantastic deal on some JVC Evarios, so GR-D250 duo would be used only as back-up, BUT, I have a ton of old Mini DV tapes -- never recorded over anything. I would find the heads needing cleaning solution highly unlikely. The first 250 recorded the bulk of those 150 or Mini DV's and worked like a champ. Because of legal depositions for lawyers and like, who may not want for me to call time-out in a deposition to switch tapes and the fact that eventually my first was going to give out, having a back-up and eventually multiple seemed like the thing to do. Having a couple of friends film some sports events I could my mix radio play-by-play I could with dual camera angles was cool. This same-year model second buy had sat in storage; The original tape the who sold it to me with 10 minutes of footage came with it. I could tell the battery was so much stronger after a full charge than my old one, but this newer D250 has maybe had 1/10 the recording time as my original. Whether listening to the camera speakers, piping the sound from the rear A/V jack or importing via firewire, it's the same. The video may not be perfect and may "spark" or "flicker" in unison with the audio that drops out,but not always. At times, the video seems just fine but the audio drop-out is akin to a loop and I could probably time it, which was what I termed as cyclical. Could one of my friends have dropped it or tipped over a tripod and not told me? Sure, but I would think they would have told me. One night, follow some high school hoops I was importing, excited at the prospects of some two camera angles mixing. Thought I may have had a bad tape, but ruled that out right away through trying multiple tapes in bother cameras. Apologies for my loquacious follow-up; I suppose if worse comes to worse, I could check eBay for a secondhand model. I've "misplaced" my original, but it will turn up; it's simply a matter of desiring to import all that footage, since 2008, with superior editing software and skill than what I possessed when doing so initially. Thanks so much!
