Question about JVC GR-D250 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

JVC GD250U I'm having trouble getting the video camera to work with my computer. I have XP and it asks me for the location of a software driver for this video camera. Do I need to update Windows or is there a driver available for this camera somewhere? The JVC website has nothing and I can't find any drivers online. Everybody says it should recognize automatically.

    I'm starting to think that no one has a solution for this problem. Some guy said to put the camera in "memory mode". Maybe I could try that if I knew what the frick that meant?

Didn't you get any CDs with it? You should put a CD in and point to it. JVC only lists upgrades on it's website, but maybe you could contact them and ask for a link to the original driver. I would think it's reasonable customer service. Basicaly it really should be recognized automaticaly by XP. If you get the Driver from JVC post a link here so that other users could benefit from it. Good luck, sorry I can't offer more help.

Video calling not be done


The Acer Aspire netbook line comes with a webcam built in to the display panel. This webcam can be used with any software that can access the webcam, such as a video chat program. The cam is in use only when the appropriate software is loaded, so it's not active at all times. The webcam drivers are installed in your netbook, so it should work with most software.

Install a third-party application, such as Skype or Yahoo! Messenger, that offers video chat features. Launch the video chat or messaging software. Select video chat or video calls from within the application to activate your Acer Aspire netbook camera. The camera should load automatically when you select the right option in your third-party software. The camera output displays on your screen and your chat partner's.

I am having trouble trying to install video stream driver to connect camcorder to PC. I keep getting 'are you sure you want to remove [sic] all programs?' I have a HP Computer with Windows xp or 2007


Windows XP has the stream uptake profile built right into it. You should not need a driver. Plug your cam into your computer and open movie maker (also built into XP) and it will ask you if you want to import. Click yes and then a drop down tab will apeer just choose your dv devise (cam)

Lost cd for jvc gr-dx75


The driver for your camera should be built into XP but you will need some capture software to get it to work.

At the bottom of this screen is a program called JLIP Video capture/Video producer. The page is located on JVCs support site:

Samsung S630 - camera works Vista doesn't


Take out all all software that you have installed and drivers . See if Vista will see it on its own. Strictly speaking cameras being USB devices do not need drivers or any other software. Just let Windows[Even Vista] do the work. Though having said that Vista is in big trouble with stuff that do need drivers.

I cant get my webcam to work with the Flash Flash Revolution video chat....


This webcam comes with ArcSoft Video Impressions. Once the webcam is installed I would open up Video Impressions, go to New, Capture and click on the little eyeball looking thing for live view. A black screen most commonly is that you are installing a nonVista certified webcam on a Vista machine. If this is the case, this webcam has workaround instructions located at www.jascoproducts.com, support, browse and update Vista and then scroll to the bottom of the page. You will see a PDF that you need to download and follow those instructions. It's not a guaranteed fix as this webcam is not Vista certified, but it may work. If you are getting a VFW driver, you need to go to Microsoft.com and download the latest DirectX. This will give you the video driver you need. I hope this helps!

Audio drop out and/or static sound Thanks to anyone who has taken a look at my issue with audio cutting out. JVC has always been a brand I have confidence in, and I believe I picked this camera up when those recording to an internal hard drive were out of my range. Last summer, I received a fantastic deal on some JVC Evarios, so GR-D250 duo would be used only as back-up, BUT, I have a ton of old Mini DV tapes -- never recorded over anything. I would find the heads needing cleaning solution highly unlikely. The first 250 recorded the bulk of those 150 or Mini DV's and worked like a champ. Because of legal depositions for lawyers and like, who may not want for me to call time-out in a deposition to switch tapes and the fact that eventually my first was going to give out, having a back-up and eventually multiple seemed like the thing to do. Having a couple of friends film some sports events I could my mix radio play-by-play I could with dual camera angles was cool. This same-year model second buy had sat in storage; The original tape the who sold it to me with 10 minutes of footage came with it. I could tell the battery was so much stronger after a full charge than my old one, but this newer D250 has maybe had 1/10 the recording time as my original. Whether listening to the camera speakers, piping the sound from the rear A/V jack or importing via firewire, it's the same. The video may not be perfect and may "spark" or "flicker" in unison with the audio that drops out,but not always. At times, the video seems just fine but the audio drop-out is akin to a loop and I could probably time it, which was what I termed as cyclical. Could one of my friends have dropped it or tipped over a tripod and not told me? Sure, but I would think they would have told me. One night, follow some high school hoops I was importing, excited at the prospects of some two camera angles mixing. Thought I may have had a bad tape, but ruled that out right away through trying multiple tapes in bother cameras. Apologies for my loquacious follow-up; I suppose if worse comes to worse, I could check eBay for a secondhand model. I've "misplaced" my original, but it will turn up; it's simply a matter of desiring to import all that footage, since 2008, with superior editing software and skill than what I possessed when doing so initially. Thanks so much!
