Transfering video to computer

by mudfish67 / November 20, 2007 8:50 AM PST

I have a borrowed JVC GR-D270U. I am trying to get the video that I took today transfered to my computer so I can put the video on a DVD. A USB connection cable is the only cable that I have. I have both Ulead and Roxio Creater 8. I am runnig WinXP. My Roxio will "see" the camera when the camera is switched to memory and I want to look at the still pics that are on the SD card. When the camera is switched to video Roxio does not see the camera. HELP!! What can I do to fix this before I have to return the camera.

You need to install and use a firewire connection.

That is the problem. I don't have a firewire cable and the friend that I borrowed that camera from doesn't have one. I am hoping for a fix that uses the USB cable. I am in a time crunch with getting this done before I return that camera.

Ugly USB

Whether USB is ugly isn't the issue, neither is me buying a firwire card and cable. It is a borrowed camera. I have to return it tonight 11/21. I will checkout the camcorder forum to see if I can find any specific help.

Sadly, my friend doen't have any software for the camera. I have tried going to JVC's website, but I can't find anything for this particular model.
