If you don't have software, you can remove the SD card and transfer the files directly.

I have just purchased JVC camcorder and i can't copy the videos that have downloaded onto my pc to an email address

You must use the software that comes with the Camera to do your editing. You can not just copy straight to the computer you see that the Discs that come with your camcorder have software that enables you to down load your pictures using the capture window while your camera is connected to the computer by a USB of 1394 firewire cable. You must have all these utilities in order to do your download. You will see options on your software to convert your pictures for email addressing that makes them to the required small files. Without the software being loaded your camera might not be recognized.

I bought a used dxg 587v camcorder but did not get the cd-rom with application software. Can I down load software or do I need cd-rom and where are these items available

Here is the Manual for your DXG-587V Camcorder: DXG-587V HD User's Manual

I could only find the drivers for the DXG-589V Camcorder, and since I don't have a DXG-587V I can't test if the installation works or not, but it is worth a try. Here is your driver download: DXG-589V

Install the software after you download the driver. Plug in your Camcorder after the installation is complete. Your operating system should recognize the Camcorder and install the drivers.

If this driver doesn't work for you, you can contact DXG Customer Support to see if they can send you a Driver Disk, or a link to a working driver:

I couldn't find anyplace on the internet to get the software for free, or even buy it. I found JVC USA's webpage for finding a dealer near you. Try to contact them and see if they can get one for you. Here's the link:
You might try taking the camera in to Best Buy. They often have extra CD software from returns, and might be able to make you a copy, or download the disk to your computer. Good luck, hope you have success!

I have panasonic handycam model no. NV-VZ1EN/ENH/ENC .how can i connect this to my computer?

You need to install the drivers for your Camcorder in order to be able to connect to your PC. When you bought your Cam a CD came with it. Here are the steps to install the drivers.
1- Insert the CD and follow the screen to install the drivers. If you do not have your CD go to this link to download drivers for your camcorder

enter your model# and download the drivers

2- After installing the drivers, connect your camcorder to your PC and turn the Cam ON.
3- The drivers will be installed automatically
4- After it is finished, click start, then computer. You should see a drive with name of your camcorder. Double click that, Now you should see one or more folders containing your pictures. You can copy, delete, and view all the pictures or videos stored in your camcorder.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

JVC Everio movie producer software

I have it and would be willing to send you a copy if you can tell me how to download the blankety blank videos onto my computer. I'm not sure the software is even loading right...but I'm going crazy. I've had the camera for almost a year and everytime I sit down with everything and say "today is the day", I'm proven wrong.
