Uploading video from miniDV to PC via firewire

  greddski 14:41 23 May 2007


I have a JVC GR-D340EK, it has a firewire connection and so does my pc (windows xp)

My pc does not recognize it. No familiar "clunk clunk" sound as it is plugged in, no little sign popping up, and nothing in my computer.

WinDV and Windows Movie Maker say that there is no device attached.

It shouldnt need a driver? Help!

Hi, when the cam is attached, is there any exclamation mark in Devices? If there is you can try update driver, in Devices/Properties.

Pretty sure there isnt, but I will look now and reply in 2 secs.

I saw this on the JVC FAQ`s page:

might help:

Q. I have read in several forums that users of some early JVC digital cameras have had trouble capturing moving video to a Windows PC system via Firewire. Can you offer any advice?
A. If you install or re-install Direct X 8.1a whilst the camera is connected this will normally solve such problems.

Or, contact JVC:
