I have a JVC DV camera(model # GR-DVM-50). I am trying to get the tapes downloaded to my PC but not sure what cable to use. I have found info that says not to use a USB port for video. They talk about a "firewire" connection. I don't understand what that means???

Win 7 with it´s automatic driver download from internet, corel studio 12 wen it starts shows transfer mini dv to dvd, and a normal firewire connection (from the right side of the lens -hidden under rubber cover-) that allows corel to use the camera automatically when the camera is on play mode.
depending on what connection you have on your computer. You can use usb to usb or dv to dv. If you use usb to usb it's pretty straightforward but if you go dv to dv just make sure which dv connector you have on your computer 4 or 6 pin. If you don't have a manual for your jvc , go to their website and download one. All of the info will be in there, usually towards the back of the manual. My suggestion would be if you have a dv connector on your pc you should use that setup because it is faster than usb. But if you don't have a dv connector, usb to usb is fine. Have fun.
Sorry, but it's not possible to record directly to a PC. Windows movie maker will only record from a tape. Please use a quality cable like Belkin, I have had issues with the cheaper firewire cords. Good luck
Since videos are taped in DV format, you need a firewire card (IEEE-1394) and cable. These are cheap. May be your PC already has a firewire card. Just check. Windows XP recognises automatically the camcorder. Moreover, its integrated video capture/editing module, Windows Movie Maker, is very userfriendly.
USB connection is only good for downloading still images (photos) to your PC. For more information, go to http://www.videohelp.com/.

This model looks like it is a couple of years old.
Yes it is NTSC. But it does have a firewire port which you can use to import your video to you computer, where you can convert to PAL and burn to a DVD. A stand alone converter to convert from NTSC to PAL is very expensive.
