Transferring video from a minidv

by racingboy20 / January 19, 2006 11:45 AM PST

Hi, I was just wondering if its possible to transfer MiniDV video through a USB cable or do you have to have a firewire? I have JVC GR-D270U miniDV camera.

USB cable or do you have to have a firewire?
by jcrobso / January 20, 2006 2:09 AM PST

Do you want it to work? Do you want you video to be high quality? If you answered yes, then use Firewire!!!
Firewire PCI cards $15~50, some come with the cable. John

In short, use what came with the camera.

Alright

Well my question was still never answered with a yes or no. I dont care about the small stuff such as bad quality or whatever, I just wanted to know IF I can do it, and if I can how. The camera came with no software to use for transferring video.

Then no.

Without the camera software, I hook up with firewire and transfer it with WINDV (google.com).

There is no standard transfer for USB.

Hope this answers your question.

In reply to: Thanks

Okay I am running a windows xp processer with a 120gig hard drive...I have a jvc mini dv digital camera...jvc customer support sucks(last time i ever buy a jvc product) Well my questions are:


What is the USB cord for, if it is just so i can get a firewire card to hook it up into then that is lame/useless since it should have came with it:S

What is the picture navigator for, can it do anything special, as in something photoshop can't do?

and is there any way the camera can be used as a webcame?

Thanks:)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
