Transfering video from JVC DVL510U to my pc

I am not very good at these kinds of things. When I purchased my digital camcorder they said I could do this. For some reason they don't make it simple. I contacted JVC and they told me that I needed some software to do this. I installed a firewire card because I was told I needed this first. Why can't you just download it into the pc? Why do they have to make everything so difficult? I'm just a regular guy trying to save my video on the pc and then transfer onto DVD's later. I'm not a computer wiz. Please help me to do this! Thanks

Re: Transfering video from JVC DVL510U to my pc

Yes, it should be as simple as just moving a file, but it isn't. When video is recorded to the tape it isn't put down as a file, it is put down as video images, but you are halfway there if you have you firewire card installed. I don't have that camera, but they are all the same. You will also need a firewire cable, but most cameras come with them. Turn your comptuer on and connect the firewire cable from your camera to the firewire card. The camera has a small connection (4-pins) and the comptuer card has a larger one. Then turn on your camera and push it to VCR, like you were going to watch the video back. You should see the windows operating system pop up a box saying that it has found your camera! It will detect a camera connected to the computer and as how you would like to record the video in (if not, then your firewire card may not be working properly). Depending on what software you have on the computer, you can open that software and begin the next step. For arguements sake, opene Windows Movie Maker because ever Windows XP machine has it. You can manually open the program or the box may ask you if you want to open it. From this point, Movie Maker is pretty simple, if the "TASKS" are not open click on the tasks button at the top and click on capture video. Choose "Capture From Device" (not import) and choose a file name and location to save to. Choose Best Quality. And then you can Capture entire tape or parts manually, I'd suggest capturing the entire tape right now, just to get started. This will take control of your camera and play your tape (make sure a tape is in the camera) and record it into the computer at the same time. It has to playback the entire tape! From that point, you have many, many options. You can edit parts of it, add music, add titles and then dub it back to a blank tape or save it out to a file. Getting it out to a DVD is a whole other beast. When you save the final product out to a file (Movie Maker saves an AVI file) it must be converted to a format that DVD players can read (MPEG-2) and then burned to the disc as a DVD Video disc. There are many tutorials to show you how to do this, but if you'd like more help just let me know what softwares you will be using because each software is a bit different. Some DVD burning software will convert the file and burn at the same time! have fun!

to transfer video from your camcorder to your laptop you will need a firewire cable (ieee 1394). only with this cable you will be able to transer video.
you will also need a firewire port on your laptop.

Transfering video to pc i get no sound


First, you need to be using firewire. make sure you install the drivers for your camcorder. you will see there is another sound card from the JVC camcorder in your computer. check if your computer is using the sound from the camcorder or the sound card from the computer when it is recording.

Transfering from jvc-hd7 to computer


You should be getting .tod files, not .mov files. The resulting files are of the type MOVxxx.tod, where xxx is a hexidecimal number. You then convert the .tod files (for PC's only) to .mpg files with the Cyberlink PowerDirector software that came with your camera (on the CD).

Hope this helps.

Camcorder as above


Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video to your PC if your computer (PC) did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, & if your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too.

Your camcorder has only a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder, when capturing video just make sure your camera is in playback mode.

Hope this initial info helps you solve your problem...

Kindly rate my solution here (and also the one out there) if this one solve your problem.. Thank you

Transfering Film to my PC


What you are going to want to do is by a capture card. Like pinnacle and it will come with software and everything you need. You can purchase an internal or an external. The photo navigator would only be for photos anyways. If you need any help locating this hardware/software let me know.
Thanks,
