Mini DVC to USB/Firewire

  Kev11 22:48 04 Dec 2006

Hi - I need to transfer my mini DVCs to my PC so I can burn them to DVD (using Sonic MyDVD). Can anyone recommend/suggest the best cable to link my JVC digital camcorder to the PC (either USB2 or Firewire). Thanks. Kev

I have always used Firewire.

Sorry, all - think I've posted this in the wrong forum. I'll put it up in Digital World instead. Sorry if I've wasted anyone's time. :-(

Yes Firewire works best, I have JVC and can use both but Pinnacle software works Automatic using Firewire

PS if you go for Firewire, Make sure that you get the correct cable to fit the camera. Mine is a mini DV output

Woodchip - how do I know which one I need? The camera says 'DV out' - is that the same as yours? Any recommendations where to go to buy one? Thanks.

Yes you need one to fit that socket, Mine is behind the TFT screen. It also as AV in out and S-Video

Mine has s video, av in out and then PC (digital photo) JLIP -I presume the latter is the one I need to use. Any thoughts on suppliers?

I think I got mine from a Computer Fair as they are cheaper, If you go into PCWorld you should see one that fits Make a note of the type connecters then get it someware cheaper. Some hear that's cheap click here You are looking at £25 for a JVC cable. if you go for JVC make

Many thanks for your help; just found a supplier that's equally cheap and ordered what looks like the same one you're recommending. Really appreciate your help tonight. See you again. Kev

Probably on the camera the Firewire socket is small and almost square.
