Hey. I have a JVC GR-270U and wanted to download my video to my pc. Connected the camera via 1394 cable. Computer recognizes the camera, but the camera only shows a blue screen. I shows that it is playing and can fast forward, rewind, but now video...just a blue screen. Took it for repair at authorized JVC dealer...said he got it working fine...came home tried to play and connect to computer using DV cable and blue screen again...Please help me.

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.
I think you may need to connect the camera via Firewire, I've checked the specs of your camera and it seems to be minidv and has a firewire port. A lot of video editing software will not detect your camera unless it is connected via the firewire port. you need to check if your pc has one first of all you can do this by going to control panel/ network connections and see if there's an icon for 1394 Connection if there is then you have firewire, so you then need to see which type of socket it is on your pc and on your camera and purchase a suitable cable. Take a look here for a reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FireWire If you don't have firewire you can buy a firewire pci card that will slot into your computer which will contain 3 or 4 ports.
Nope, that camera only has S-Video and composite video outputs. IEEE1394 is also known as firewire. Newer camcorders will connect via firewire. You will need a video capture card for your computer. Either an internal card or a USB version. Then you can record the video onto your computer.
The USB on your camcorder is for downloading still pictures only. If
you want to transfer video to your computer you need to hook up a
firewire cable, which is to the right of the USB connection. Firewire
is also known as 1394 connection.
I had a similar issue. I had never been able to download video to computer because the computer never recognized the camera. As a last resort, I bought a new firewire cord today -- and my computer recognized the camera as soon as I turned the camera to play! It was four years in the making (I thought there was something wrong with my camera this entire time!), but it was just a cord issue. Now the cord that came with the camera is in the trash, and I can download video. I did buy an (XP) driver for I think $8 online, but I'm not sure whether that really had anything to do with it (I have SP3). I bought it from www.helpdrivers.com, and it was called the JVC / GR-D70U USB Mass Storage Class Driver + G.726 Decoder / Windows

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.
