I purchased a JVC GR-DVL300u digital camera, installed the software in my PC, connected the serial cable, and the video capture program worked fine. But.... Recently I installed software for a "still" digital camera and now my video capture program will not connect to the JVC camera.
I read the warning in the manual about usb drivers blocking the RS232 serial port, so I deleted the all of the software and reloaded the video capture software but it still is not working... any ideas

Turn the power switch on your camcorder to "Off." Connect the USB cable that came with the camcorder to the USB port on the camcorder. If you are using the DV cable, connect one end of the cable to the computer first. Put the other end of the USB cable into the USB port on your computer. If you are using the DV cable, connect it to the camcorder. Power on your camcorder. Wait while your computer recognizes the attached JVC GR-D270U camcorder. Typically you will get a pop-up on your screen asking how you want to proceed once the camcorder has been recognized. Open your video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere, Roxie, iMovie or Windows Movie Maker. Import, or capture, the video from the camcorder to your computer using the video editing software. For example, in iMovie you click on "File," then "Import from Camera" to download the movie from your camcorder to the computer.
Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.
The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire. Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.
USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera. If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.
The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)
Try reversing the actions you made to see if you can restore operation of your capture program. And if you do, I would suggest that you do not reinstall in your computer the software for the still pictures since there is a conflict. Better still, If you have a system restore point dated before you introduced the still software, I would try that first . Good luck!
buy that wire, check ur camcorder if it has 6pin or 4pin for firewire then check ur pc if it has firewire card...if not you have to purchase the ieee1394card. install it then connect your camcorder to pc through firewire and that will be it.. u also need to have a software for video capturing and editing like adobe, roxio, pinnacle , etc...hope that helps.
Since VHSC camcorders feature only analog outputs: it is not possible to connect the camcorder directly to a PC (unless a computer video card is equipped with analog inputs). The only way to transfer images from the camcorder to a PC will be using an external device capable of analog/digital signal conversion. JVC has released a capture device model, GV-CB3U which has the capability of video capture of a single frame in either Bitmap or JPEG format. The GV-CB3 can be connected to any video source through a standard video or S-Video connector and download single image to a PC using serial port (RS232C communication port). The JLIP Video Capture software necessary to transfer images to the computer as well as connecting cables are supplied with this product. You can also use 3rd party hardware (Video Capturing device) to send information from your camera to a PC. Visit your local PC or Office store for more information on other video capturing devices.
