Firstly, I am trying to capture footage from this camera in Windows Movie Maker.I am plugging in the cable into the back of the cpu, as I had a camera before that worked perfectly for this. I am using Windows Movie Maker for it, and the cable is plugged in and when I goto "capture from device" it just says to properly connect or turn on the camera which was both done properly,which I know for a fact because I have done this 10 plus times in the past with my other camera. Anybody have any advice that I may be missing when trying to capture from my camera into Movie Maker? Maybe the cam needs to be installed into the cpu or whatever, please help,Thanks!
I hope you are connecting the camera to the Fire wire port of the camera, if not, if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.

It seams that this camcorder uses digital 8 media for storage ..and it does record digital ..so the transfer should not be a problem ..but it has no slot for any kind of external memory so the direct record to a external drive or flash is not possible ...but ..the way to upload the footage is simple and you just have to use a firewire cable ..and capture the footage on a video manager like windows movie maker.. The procedure is just like any other tape camcorder...just plug the cable ..let the computer see the camera ..and than use the video manager to import or capture the video while it is played back .. If your operation system does not have a movie maker ..use the one recommended by Sony on the support site ..or any other which has the capacity to capture from device .. The only way to capture directly to the computer's hdd is also with a video manager..but the camera needs to have the ability to stream ...To try it and see if it is able to ..just plug it with the wirefire...open the movie maker..and choose to capture from device and see if you have any image on the preview..If it does..it means it is capable to stream and capture in real time on the movie maker..than be saved as a video file on the hdd..
USB connection will allow still photos ONLY to be capture to a computer.
To capture the footage from the tape you will have to connect with a firewire cable, also called iLink or IEEE1394a.
Windows Movie Maker will be one program that can capture the footage.
Hi, I believe that camera comes with a firewire cable. Does your computer have that? If so, just connect the camcorder to your computer and power on the camera. Your Operating system should recognize it. Then open MS moviemaker. You can control what footage you want to capture from within moviemaker. It is timeconsuming and requires quite a bit of free disk space as the imported files can get rather large and hard to work with once they are over 1GB.
To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!
This camcorder should not require a driver in order to capture the footage. Start up your capture software, power-up the camera in VCR mode and then connect the Firewire cable. It should then allow you to playback the tape and capture the contents. Here is the manual online: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/LYT1353-001A.pdf If you need a simple program to capture the footage look to: http://www.virtualdub.org/
Your video-editing software (including Windows Movie Maker) should also capture the footage.
