Jvc gr-d370as - help connecting to Mac - Date and Time Setting

Hi

I am trying to connect the above camcorder to my mac - using firewire cable. For some reason when I try to import into IMovies, the camera is not being recognised.

I troubleshooted on my mac (G4 ibook) - and it says I need to change the date and time settings on the JVC - which I had never set.

I have lost my manual and cant for the hell of me work out how to do it.

Can someone advise me how to change the date and time on this machine?

Thanks!

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?

My Macbook Pro also did not detect the connected GR-DVP9AG


The old Camcorders (which using tapes) need to use firewire 1394 connection (4 t0 4 or 4 to 6) to transfer video to PC/ Mac.

Unable to download video from JV dvl520 to my mac


Is it connected with a firewire cable? Have you been able to import the video before to your Mac?
If it it says it is in USB Mode - then change the camera menu setting to DV.

Power off the camera, shut down iMovie - power on the camera then launch iMovie check again. (Assuming your using iMovie).
