Questions & Answers
My mom has an older
Hello, Regina -
Without knowing the make and model of the camcorder it is a challenge to give you the best information.
Instead, I suggest you take the camcorder to a store which specializes in cameras and related equipment. Someone at such a store can give you the best advice.
Note: For more permanence of the videos you may want to have them transferred to a DVD.

Wont turn on or charge
This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I have still and video
If you have an AV Video Audio Out on the camera, as I suspect you do. Then you can get a USB Video/Audio Capture device, OR a PCI TV/Video capture card, (Best) and using that you can "Stream" the video over this link to the PC and save it as a Video file,say MPG4 or the like. This gives great results and is easy to do. You simply connect up the camera, start the Video capture software, and press Play on tape, so to speak, then you will be able to capture the video,and save it as you wish, then you can burn a DVD or send it to someone else. Otherwise you can get USB to Firewire converters and you can use that too. But you will still need the same video capture software and such.
Dscaler is a great recording software.

The USB on your camcorder is for downloading still pictures only. If
you want to transfer video to your computer you need to hook up a
firewire cable, which is to the right of the USB connection. Firewire
is also known as 1394 connection.
Hope it helps.

Transfer movie from mini tape to computer - JVC GR-D770U
Product called EasyCap, for about 15 bucks, "can be found online" Has USB plug. Use your cable that has the 3.5 pin that goes out to rca cable, yellow, white and red. EasyCap has the RCA to USB then to computer. Use Windows Movie Maker, comes with XP & Vista, capture while playing from there. I just converted about 20 full tapes from one cannon mini 8 and 15 from a jvc dv onto a TB drive.

JVC GR DVL9800 - Vista won't recognize
I have the same camera and use vista without a problem. However I use the firewire interface and not the USB which might be the explanation.
By the way, I can't find my manual. The date and time don't stay saved for any length of time between use. Is there a baterry that need to be changed and if so where is it?

Problems installing JVC USB drivers
The JVC USB driver was written before introduction of the Windows XP system. This warning is displayed with other manufacturer’s digital cameras, also, and is not strictly a JVC phenomenon.
In order to use the USB interface between the camera and your computer, select the “CONTINUE anyway” option provided in this warning display. To JVC’s knowledge, there are no negative effects to using JVC driver with Windows XP.
