Re: Connection

Only DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) are possible when connecting your camcorder to a computer. DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) Your camcorder can be connected to a computer equipped with an IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or OHCI-compliant IEEE1394 capture board. You can transfer taped recordings (digital video signals) to the computer by connecting the camcorder to the computer. Use the editing software supplied with your computer/capture board to transfer video recordings from tape to the computer. If you are using a computer running Windows XP, you can also record the video simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape using DV-PC Recorder Software. You can download the DV-PC Recorder Software from Canon's DV-PC Recorder Web site. Making the connection Connect the camcorder to the computer as shown in the figure below. The computer's IEEE1394 (DV) terminal is either a 4-pin or a 6-pin type, depending on the computer used. Use either the CV-150F (4-pin - 4-pin) or the CV-250F (4-pin - 6-pin) DV cable (sold separately), whichever fits your computer's terminal. Precautions (1) There are cases where the connection may not work correctly, depending on your system specifications/settings. (2) If the computer freezes while you have the camcorder connected to it , disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, take the following actions. (2-1) Disconnect the DV cable from the camcorder and the computer, and then turn off the camcorder and the computer. (2-2) Turn the camcorder and the computer back on and then reconnect them with the DV cable. (3) Your camera cannot be used with DV NETWORK SOFTWARE (DV Messenger).

Sir when I canect my dv camcorder pc via fire wire ...but not capture video..and erorr show code 1021 ...there are no free reusorses in computer...how to solve problum...help me....thanks..


see this topic and contact the supplier .God bless you

FireWire connection to computer keeps getting dropped. Check with manufacturer to make sure you have the latest driver and firmware updates for your camera and computer. Always turn the camera's power on before making a FireWire connection. Disconnect the FireWire cable before turning the camera off. Use the camera's AC adapter when making FireWire connections. Try a different FireWire cable and try connecting the camera to a different computer. FireWire cables and ports sometimes fail.

I,ve purchased a apple mac and can,t get my jvc 700x to comply with it


In order to import video you have to connect your computer to the DV in/out connection on the side of the camera. In your manual its on index page 6 and its the connection on the side of the camera #25 in the index. You have to have a DV cable that connects one side to the DV out of the camera and usually a firewire port on your computer. USB connections usually don't work for importing video to your computer.
Here is a link to the manual http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/95/LYT1280-001B.pdf

I have a sony handycam dcr-pc101 ntsc and I am trying to connect it to my Mac, but the computer will not recognize the movie camera. (I have it connected through the firewire connection- not the usb port)


I'm osrry that you find difficulty in transfering the videos to the macintosh computer. Refer the URL for the infirmation on Transfering video to a Mac computer

http://support.sony-europe.com/tutorials/dime/videotransfer/vtransfer.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&sec=DV&m=DCR-PC101E

NOTE: The procedure to transfer video to a computer will vary depending on the type of camcorder you have and the type of connection you are using.

I need the Panasonic NV-GS27 drivers


I don't think you do. According to the Panasonic document "Operating Instructions (PC-Connection)", your camera does not use a USB connection and did not even come with the software CD that was shipped with cameras that have a USB connection.

You need to use the Firewire (DV) interface to transfer videos, and this does not require drivers. It does require Windows XP with service pack 2 (or 3) and DirectX 9.0b/9.0c, and you will probably need to fit a Firewire interface card to the computer's internal PCI bus, as most Windows computers don't come with this connection. Whether this camera will work with Windows 7 is not covered by the document.

You then use various video editing software (commercially available or free downloads from the internet) to download the recordings. The software on the computer controls my Mini-DV camera, including rewinding and play functions to record from the tape in the camera.

You can obtain a copy of the Panasonic document from THIS LINK

Cant find pics


The simplest solution is to buy a cheap SD card reader and connect it to your computer. Then put the SD memory card from the camera in the reader. Windows XP will open a dialogue window asking you what you want to do with the pictures.

The caa-03040s has a relatively slow USB connection. Get a USB 2.0 card reader and connect it to a USB 2.0 port on the computer for much faster download speeds than the camera is capable of.

Connection


A digital video camera may be connected to a computer using an optional OHCI compatible, digital video capture kit available commercially. These kits must be capable of using the IEEE1394 (FireWire) interface to enable you to import digital video signal and still images into your computer. For those models equipped with a separate USB port, the camcorder may also be connected to a computer via its mini-B USB port, for downloading still images recorded on the SD/MMC card.
