    Default JVC GR-D31EK

    My PC won't recognise the vid camera ? I recently installed a firewire card. I've checked in device manager and all looks okay. I've tried using Pinnacle studio 9 and windows movie maker, but none recognise the vid camera ?? Arrrggg !

    Ive tried looking for an instructions manual at JVC to no avail. Ive tried all 3 firewire slot in the card.

    Is there any particular sequence I have to do things ?

    Please help. Any other things I can check for ???

    What OS are you using? If you're using win 9x plugin in the cam and switch it to play before booting.

    If things go to plan, you should here a friendly XP ping of recognition from XP when the cam is connected, followed by a dialogue box. Providing you have the card installed properly and the camera is on and in the play/vcr mode, it should be recognised.

    hummmm... i don't get a friendly ping. thats the trouble - im not sure if its the firewire card or the vid camera. the firewire card is listed on device manager, with no erros, so i assume its not that. Can I assume the vid-camera is digital because it has the right firewire connection ? Can I get another lead and connect it to a USB ?

    I'd strongly advise using firewire for the best quality. Try it on a mate's machine. If it doesn't work, time for a repair/replacement from the vendor/manufacturer.
