HELP--I can't get my camcorder to interface with my computer
I'm totally new to this. Someone gave me an RCA CC9360 digital video camcorder. I bought a firewire controller card for my Win98 computer, but when I connect the camera to the card nothing happens on my monitor other than the cursor changing from the "arrow" to the "hourglass" just for a couple of seconds, like it's interfacing, but then nothing else happens. Do I need some new software to use this camera? I've tried accessing it with my Windows Media Player and by using the already installed ATI video card software, but nothing works. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Some just will never work. but try this.
1. Install the MOTHERBOARD DRIVERS for your machine.
2. Try VIRTUAL DUB. Hint: Free, found with google.com
3. See if Windows Movie Maker is still available. Hint: I never use it, so I can't tell you much about it.

It could also be that the particular cassette is dirty. You can also clean the head with a Q-Tip dabbed in isopropyl alcohol. Ensure that you play a cassette only after the alcohol has evaporated, or the tape will get stuck.

Usually this occurs when the door latch release mechanism is broken. This mechanism is located on the basket where you push the tape in and it's job is to open the tape "door" on the cassette that you insert. Unfortunately, the only fix for this is to replace the cassette basket. I know your camcorder is actually made by JVC, but I don't have access to a manual so I can't supply a part number for you.
Quite often just the one clean won't dislodge the gunk built up on the heads. Make sure you use a new wet system head cleaner and you may have to run it a few times to clear the clog. JUST DON'T USE COTTON BUDS OR WOVEN RAGS.
You need a firewire interface, Firewire on the computer, and a video editing program. Windows XP has the moviemaker, which will do.
A more elegant way is a Mac which will have everything you need included.
