Question about JVC GR-DV3 Camcorder

1 Answer

When I connect the camera with a firewire cable there is no response

My computer does not respond when I connect the GR-DV3 to it with a firewire cable. I can play footage back on the camera and there is still no activity in my editing program. When I connect my sony mini-dv camera, the computer automatically recognizes it. Is something wrong with the JVC camera?

    exactly the same problem, ower supply makes NO difference, it is a driver problem. works fine with 98se ONLY if dvconnect330 is installed - this is NOT compatible with vista OR xp.

I CONNECTED MY HANDYCAM WITH THE PC USING USB, BUT IT THE CAMERA WAS NOT RECOGNIZED , WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO ?


If you are trying to capture footage from the tape you will need to connect with a firewire cable. USB will only connect to the storage card, usually assigned for still photos.

Using movie maker to upload from JVC GR-axm17u (older camcorder) Got it hooked up to pinnacle usb device. I see the movie clip on my PC but the quality is terrible. Looks great on my camera as it is...


The USB device may be converting the footage to a very compressed codec.
Computer playback is not intended for interlaced footage as the camera produces so this may impact on the viewing.
Converting Compact VHS is best done with an Analogue to Digital Converter over a firewire connection rather than a USB device if you wish to edit in Movie Maker.

Hi, I am trying to import from my Canon MV 600 ( Tape not digital ) into a mac pro. I got the DV to firewire lead but the computer doesnt seem to recognise the camera. Many thanks Billy


Hi in order to get footage off your camera through Firewire i.e DV you will have to use a software to capture the footage. You can use iMovie to capture the footage off the camera.
Open Apple System Profiler (it's in the Utilities folder) and check to see if your camera appears in the FireWire section.

If your camera is connected via FireWire and is turned on, follow one or more of these tips to re-establish the connection to the camera.
  • Turn the camera off and back on again.
  • Disconnect the FireWire cable from your computer and reconnect it. Do the same at the camera as well. If the camera is connected through a FireWire hub, try connecting the camera directly to the computer.
  • Some cameras need to be set to "VTR", "VCR", or "DV" mode in order to communicate with a computer. Check your camera's documentation for information on how to set your camera to this mode if needed
Hope this helps.

Can I get a DV firewire to USB 2.0 converter cable to capture video directly on laptop running Vista?


I am not aware of any firewire to USB conversion cables.
The two protocols are so radically different it's unlikely that anyone will make one.
If your laptop has a PCI slot on the side you can get FW cards that fit to give you 2 firewire ports.

JVC camera software GR-D70 for windows vista


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)

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:

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.

I can't copy my videos to my computer/CD's.


We too are having this problem. When we open our editing software, on the pc, to communicate with the camera, the camera responds with the pc, although there is no picture image showing on the pc and as a result we can't capture any video footage.

We are planning to try a different firewire cable, to assess whether that is the issue.

Putting video footage on my computer


To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.

Do I need any special cables to view or record the footage?


No. The GRHD1U includes a component cable. Another breakout cable provides composite, S-video and audio left and right. For dubbing the footage to a DVHS VCR or computer, a standard 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 (camera has a 4 pin connector built in) pins firewire cable (not supplied) is required.
