Question about JVC GR-DVX70EG Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Firewire stopped The firewire connection on my camera stopped working. I can view playback in the monitor, but cannot move video from it to the computer. I have tried a new cable, I run power from the AC adapter and I have confirmed that the firewire connection is good by using a different camera. I did not have software to install to slave off video from the camera before but was having success with the Pinnicle Studio moving. I cannot obtain video in the Microsoft movie Maker either. I really like my compact camera and hope I can make it work. I don't find any settings in the menu to turn firewire on or off. I've also tried an analog connection and that is not giving me playback either, but I had not tried that before, so I don't know what that would have looked like before. Thanks for your help!

Though you have checked the firewire card, try the process for your camcorder with a new firewire card.

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I need to download the drivers to my computer so I can transfer the video's to my computer. Where can I download them, I tried Sony,but they don't work.


You should not need additional drivers. Digital-8 cameras will have a firewire port on them. Connect with a firewire cable to the computer and open Windows Movie Maker for PCs or iMovie for Macs. Using another movie editing application if you have one will also work.
Treat the Digital-8 camera as a non-controllable device, that means you will most likely have to start the camera manually to capture. Make sure the camera is in VCR/playback mode not record.

Please tell me from where i can download DCR-TRV285E driver of sony digital 8 .


If you mean a driver to transfer the video to your computer via firewire (ieee1394), then you are in luck! No driver is needed. As long as you have a correctly installed firewire port on your computer, a firewire connecting cable, and video editing software, you should be able to easily transfer video to your system.
Connect the camera to the computer via the firewire cable.
Turn on the camera.
Put the camera in playback mode.
Startup Windows Movie Maker or iMovie if on a Mac or whatever video program you prefer.
Should be an option for "capture" or "import from camera".
Use that and you are good to go!

Need to know how to transfer video from digital camera to computer


To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:- 1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

8mm Samsung camcorder: choppy playback


This seems like a tape playback problem. Can you look at the output of the tape in the camera directly into a monitor? And checking the tapes on another machine would also be good.

The fast movement breakup can be something in the playback circuitry of the camera. It may not show up in the viewfinder. Also yo umay try repacking the tape. Fast forward it to the end and rewind it all the way.

XL 1s playback has a lot of digital noise.


if you are capturein through the fire wire port, it could be either the port is bad or the cable ha abad connection in it. try using a different cablr first, if that does not fix it, then it must be the firewire port. just to make sure, see if you can get ahold of a "Blue Box" one of those analog to firewire converter boxes, and see if it comes out clear then. if it does then I am 100% sure that it is the firewire port.

Playback problems - timer stays at zero


Firewire transfer problem with PV-GS320. HAd bought the PV-GS90 and ran into significant transfer issues importing to Mac (iMovie and Fincal Cut Express HD both had problems). Upgraded to GS320 as Macworld rated it highly. Same problems: video plays back perfectly with no computer connection. once connected, video and audio stutter, go out of sync, sometimes just stop and/or crash the program.

I've used a borrowed Canon GL with this Mac before with no issues, so I suspect the camera. Have tried reset button, trashing preferences, restarts, the works. still can't get clean video to transfer from a brand new camera. Any Ideas?
