Is part number QAM0403-001 the S/AV/Editing cable?
I bought a used JVC GR-D201US, without the S/AV/Editing cable.
On the JVC website, they list:
It -looks- like the S/AV/Editing cable, except in the picture it has a USB connector visible, and it is described as "Multi cable to USB Connection." Obviously the connector on the JVC for this is -not- a USB connection, and a simple cable will not do USB to AV or AV to USB.
I suspect this was a mistake by whomever took the picture and typed it up. I am unwilling to risk over $40 to find out, and their phone support was no assistance.
Can anyone confirm or deny that the above part number is the S/AV/Editing cable? Or know where I may find one?

Drivers are not neccessary when transferring VIDEO on "GR-D" camcorders. All you need is a firewire cable (4pin to 4pin) or (4pin to 6pin) depending on your computer. Once connected, you can use free DV EDITING SOFTWARE like, Windows Movie Maker or iMovie. USB ports on these cameras are reserved for transferring PICTURES ONLY
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.
You need to get a firewire card for your computer in order to use the DV cable connection on the camcorder. Once inserted Windows will immediately install it and usually without drivers. You will also need the correct DV to Firewire cable which are pretty cheap and easy to obtain.
You then need some video editing software, though you may find Microsoft's Movie Maker that comes with Windows too basic. Do a quick google search for "video editing software" and you will find some software that is easy to use. I know Cyberlink PowerDirector had favourable ratings on the review and comparison sites last time I checked.
You would need to use iMovie. Most MacBooks come with this already installed but if you can't find it you might have to buy it from apple's website. All you have to do is open iMovie with the camera connected and on and import the movie into iMovie, then you can edit the way you want it to be. iMovie has some great tutorials as well. Importing and editing can take a while, however.
