Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D200US Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Transfering video from JVC DVL510U to my pc

I am not very good at these kinds of things. When I purchased my digital camcorder they said I could do this. For some reason they don't make it simple. I contacted JVC and they told me that I needed some software to do this. I installed a firewire card because I was told I needed this first. Why can't you just download it into the pc? Why do they have to make everything so difficult? I'm just a regular guy trying to save my video on the pc and then transfer onto DVD's later. I'm not a computer wiz. Please help me to do this! Thanks

Yes, it should be as simple as just moving a file, but it isn't. When video is recorded to the tape it isn't put down as a file, it is put down as video images, but you are halfway there if you have you firewire card installed. I don't have that camera, but they are all the same. You will also need a firewire cable, but most cameras come with them. Turn your comptuer on and connect the firewire cable from your camera to the firewire card. The camera has a small connection (4-pins) and the comptuer card has a larger one. Then turn on your camera and push it to VCR, like you were going to watch the video back. You should see the windows operating system pop up a box saying that it has found your camera! It will detect a camera connected to the computer and as how you would like to record the video in (if not, then your firewire card may not be working properly). Depending on what software you have on the computer, you can open that software and begin the next step. For arguements sake, opene Windows Movie Maker because ever Windows XP machine has it. You can manually open the program or the box may ask you if you want to open it. From this point, Movie Maker is pretty simple, if the "TASKS" are not open click on the tasks button at the top and click on capture video. Choose "Capture From Device" (not import) and choose a file name and location to save to. Choose Best Quality. And then you can Capture entire tape or parts manually, I'd suggest capturing the entire tape right now, just to get started. This will take control of your camera and play your tape (make sure a tape is in the camera) and record it into the computer at the same time. It has to playback the entire tape! From that point, you have many, many options. You can edit parts of it, add music, add titles and then dub it back to a blank tape or save it out to a file. Getting it out to a DVD is a whole other beast. When you save the final product out to a file (Movie Maker saves an AVI file) it must be converted to a format that DVD players can read (MPEG-2) and then burned to the disc as a DVD Video disc. There are many tutorials to show you how to do this, but if you'd like more help just let me know what softwares you will be using because each software is a bit different. Some DVD burning software will convert the file and burn at the same time! have fun!

I lost my charger for my digital camcorder


If you really can't find the one for your Camcorder, go and look for a Universal charger that comes with all sorts of plugs which one will fit your camcorder. When you get this Universal charger check the voltage on it. Usually the universal charger comes with many settings. Buy one with the settings that correspond to your camcorder. But one word of advice though, you must be careful when you use this kind of charger. Suppose your camera needs 8Volts for power (this is written on the label at the bottom of your camera) you be cautious then use the next lower level if it is say 6Volts. If your Camera powers on with this then keep it that way. the reason for my saying this is that sometimes the Universal Caharger is unreliable so you might get too much voltage from what is written on the Charger. Good Luck.

Where can I purchase a used (must be in working order) panosonic camcorder - Model NV DS60B


eBay is a place where you can get some fairly good deals and good electronics - including camcorders. (We purchased several of our video cams on there with good results.)

It is important to do your research, check the reviews of the seller, and only use eBay's secure transaction feature.

Its showing just blue background on the screen wita mesage NO SIGNAL.


If you are trying to capture from a digital camcorder (tape), you have to use a firewire connection, USB does not work as stated in requirements.
Adding to what Walt said, firewire cables don't connect to a USB port. If you don't have a firewire cable, you need to purchase one. And if you do, don't buy a cheap one. Buy cheap, buy twice.

No Video on LCD or in Viewfinder


It is nearly 14 years old. I should give it an honourable retirement, and purchase a more modern replacement.

No sound when playing back video footage


If there is an external microphone jack on the camera, it would help if you tried recording with an external microphone. Also, the mini DV's will mute the sound if the tape guides are slightly out of adjustment. You can tell if they have moved by trying a known good sound tape in the machine. If that plays with no sound also, the tape guides have moved out of alignment.

PROBLEM DECIDING ON PRODUCT


Greetings BOOMCCORMICK,

It really depends on what is most important to you. If you are most concerned about still pictures and want to take an occasional lower quality video, then go with a digital camera. If you want high quality video with an occasional lower quality photo, go with a digital camcorder. Unfortunately to achieve high quality on both products, you still need two different units.

The camera you mention is a nice unit. However keep in mind my above advice before making a purchase either way. The unit is capable of video, but it will not be the quality of a standalone digital camera. Also, if you do decide to utilize your camera for video, have an abundance of memory on hand, preferrably the high speed type. The reason for this is video eats up your memory very rapidly. The reason to use high speed card is so you have smoother video.

I hope this helps!
Thank you,

Dorothy
