Just installed digi camcorder

  [DELETED] 20:48 22 Jan 2006

I just installed a JVC digi camera and some of the files could not be located but said files are in my windows programmes that it asking for.
Thing is, how do you view what you have recorded on the camorder on the pc?
I know it seems a silly question?
Here is pics of my problems. How do I fix these. 2nd pic is my system. Just saves me from typing it out.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Not sure if posting pics is allowed?

I don't know how it works with your particular camera (give us more details -- model, interface connection, etc.), but here's how it works with my quite old Panasonic:

Camera plugs into a Firewire card (could be USB2 with modern cameras), then Pinnacle software downloads the video data. Then I can view and edit the data using Pinnacle, and convert it to the right format for burning onto DVD. The Movie software (can't remember its name) that comes with Win XP can do the same basic job, I believe.

I got the Mercury firewire card "1394 I/O AND INSTALLED IT.

It's a JVC digital video camera.

Is this what you mean for details?

What version of Windows? If it's XP, I think that the camera should be recognised automatically when you plug it into the firewire port.

So, how far exactly are you getting? Did the firewire card install okay? What happens when you plug the camera into the firewire port and switch it on?

What Files does it say is on your WinME CD

On your Click Hear the yellow icons are drivers not loaded. You need to load these from the WinME CD when it asks you to put the ME CD in

You've got a problem with the firewire, usb and ethernet controller on your pc, solve these first before plugging your camera in click here or insert your driver cd's and right click on problem hardware and select update driver.

I update driver, it says found best driver already installed then when i say ok
it asks for files which I find on windows
but I can't find ones called 61883 Class Bus device

I searched my motherboard and now I have

You are still getting Firewire Driver Problems, These should be loaded from the Motherboard Drivers for the Chipset on your Motherboard
