Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D200US Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

GR-D200 capture to Vista

I have a GR-D200 with original software, and drivers. I also have windows Vista.

After hours of trying to get Vista to recognize the camcorder connected via USB, i was able to make it work, somewhat. Movie maker still doesnt recognize it, nor do a bunch of other media players, but some "muvee" program provided by hp does. The problem is, the quality from the camera is horrible. Its grainy, pixelated, and the sound is awful. The quality was great in xp, but all i've got is vista now.

I need a program that will do it better than muvee, because muvee only lets sound record through 25% of the time, which is annoying. Its the only program i've found that will recognize the camera, so i dont have a choice. More importantly, I need a way to fix the horrible quality, which im assuming is just the driver on vista? Is there nothing I can do to make it better?

Oh, and I also tried the included program by PIXELA, but that is also for vista, and will not go to the capture screen (doesnt do anything when I click the option)


help?

I can understand your problem. I have the same problem with Windows 7 software for a video capture card manufactured by Canopus (Grass Valley) After much searching and experimenting I decided that the best solution was to maintain a Windows XP machine for this one purpose. In my case it was a cheap solution because I have a collection of Windows machines that I can use. It enabled me to capture my old family movies on DV tape format and then transfer them to my newer machine for editing. Sorry I don't have a better solution, but sometimes technology progresses faster than is convenient for some of us.
Cheers, Don.

Vista Driver for JVC Camcorder GR-DV900


Hi,
      Unfortunatley your answer is within your question, in which you say it only came with Driver Support for Win 98, 2000 & XP, basically meaning that your Camcorder is not compatible with Windows Vista.
      The only 3 Possible choices you have are to 

1. Use a friend's PC who has XP installed, and Transfer the Files through using their System.

2. Remove Windows Vista, and Install Windows XP

or 

3. Wait until your Camcorder is supported by Windows Vista.

I seriously should not wait for Option 3 though, as I've had a Philips Webcam for over 2-3 yrs now, and is still not supported by Windows Vista.

Need to Import videos from the JVC GR-D270U to my PC


I disagree VERY much with Bubbabear64. I tried what he said and I had lots of problems. The computer wouldn't import and sometimes it wouldn't recognize the camera. I installed the 2 programs that came with the camera on the CD, and all of a sudden it worked great. So install the audio driver and the picture importer on the JVC disk that came with your camera.

JVC GR-D270u Digital Video Camera


Here is the issue. Connecting this camera to your PC via USB will only allow you to download the pictures that you have stored on the camera's SD card. To download video to your PC you will need to use a firewire to 4-pin DV cable. If you do not have the software from JVC, no worries as Movie Maker on Windows XP will import video from devices for you. Movie Maker in Vista will not allow importing video or capturing from devices at all, so you will need to get the JVC software if you are oin Vista.

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)

JVC GR-DVL310 VISTA DRIVER


Your JVC is a MiniDV camcorder, which uses a Firewire connection for capture. Firewire drivers are standard for all DV camcorders, and built-in on every version of Windows since about Windows 98SE (well, they didn't work very well until Windows 2000).

You still need a capture application to complete the transfer. Most (maybe all) versions of Windows comes with Windows Movie Maker, which is a very basic program, but it can do this.

Normally, a DV camcoder can't be detected by Windows until you have it connected via Firewire, and have it the appropriate mode. On some cameras, this can be play or record (the latter would tranfer live video, or allow recording TO the camera), on others, you need to set the camera to a "link to PC" mode. I currently own Sony and Canon camcorders that both work in the former way, but my first DV camcorder was a JVC, and it did have to put in a "link to PC" mode to be detected by the computer. If you can't find the setting, you might want to check your user manual.

For still photos, it looks like you use a USB connection. I haven't found all the details on this camcorder, but this is likely to be a normal USB "storage class" connection. If so, your camcorder would show up like a disc drive, and you can drag photos over. Vista will support this by default, too.

The other way some older camcorders send photos is to appear to the system as a USB scanner type device. You would need a device driver for this, from JVC.

The user manual would be helpful here. You can get one via download if you don't have it:

Pc does not see my jvl gr-dvl300u, why? is port wrong or what?


Try reversing the actions you made to see if you can restore operation of your capture program. And if you do, I would suggest that you do not reinstall in your computer the software for the still pictures since there is a conflict. Better still, If you have a system restore point dated before you introduced the still software, I would try that first . Good luck!
