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.

Gz mg20u jvc camcorder

Before you connect the camera to the computer you have to install the software that is on the CD that came with the camera. When this camera was new, Windows-XP and OS X 10.3.9 were the standard. I think you still can get the correct drivers and perhaps even the complete software on the JVC site, if you can't find the CD. I lost my CD and I still could get the software only a couple of years ago.

JVC GR-D270u Digital Video Camera

Here is the issue. Connecting this camera to your PC via USB will only allow you to download the pictures that you have stored on the camera's SD card. To download video to your PC you will need to use a firewire to 4-pin DV cable. If you do not have the software from JVC, no worries as Movie Maker on Windows XP will import video from devices for you. Movie Maker in Vista will not allow importing video or capturing from devices at all, so you will need to get the JVC software if you are oin Vista.

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:

S-video port

Fist of all I like to inform in computer S-Video output of the camera usually does not fit to computer. Only if the computer has S-Video Input card it will be possible. However logic is simple. Digital Camera or Camcorders uses 1394 or USB connection to connect to the computer. You havent indicate what model of JVC you use, almost all JVC Digital Cameras come with USB connection option. All you need to put USB cable in between. If it asks driver, use the CD comes with the Camera or download from JVC's support website.

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.

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!
