Question about JVC GR-D270 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Welcome to FixYa!
Copying from TAPE to PC requires 4 things. The video cam where the TAPE will be played, a FIREWIRE compatible cable, a FIREWIRE card installed on your computer and a SOFTWARE that supports a firewire device that would record the video.
Unlike Digital Videos that you can just copy and paste the video file from the video cam to the computer, the tape to pc transfer is more of recording the video in from the video cam by playing it in real time while the computer is recording it.
This is a sample of a FIREWIRE card that is installed inside a computer.
An external USB version of this is also available.
This is a sample of a FIREWIRE cable.
Windows MOVIE MAKER is an example of a software that can be used to record the videos. It supports FIREWIRE devices.
Here's a sample video.
Thank you for using FixYa!

what cable are you using to connect your camcorder to the pc? and did you try to look at the manual for that situation. see also the settings from your camcorder before you connect it and look for the memory storage use or tape usage so that the appearance on the computer will be tape and not the memory card. can you pls give me some specific problems and details so that its not hard for us to solve your problem.
