My son has brought the above off ebay. We had all the connections but no handbook or cd. I have downloaded handbook, but cannot find a instal cd. I have plugged it in but it isn't recognised, I have also asked the person who it was from but no reply, I can't find one one anywhere or drivers. Does anyone know where I can download.

I assume you're xp, as w2k and 98 doesn't seem to have this type of prob with dv camcords. make sure you've got all updates and look thro menu for jvc to see if dv out is enabled. Also try dv editing progs to 'import' as these sometimes have better 'capture' devices than xp et al. Here's a free editor which may help click here (but vegas is my prefered choice click here )

Ulrich. Try connecting the camera to a firewire port (assuming you have one). If I remember correctly, you do not need any drivers for this. The pc sees the camera as a new drive. If you are transferring movies to your pc, you'll need a firewire card anyway. Hope this helps.
