    Default Problem connecting JVC GR-D70U to PC to upload movies

    I have a Belkin firewire 3 port pci card in my computer. The firewire card is showing up in device manager as working properly. I have a JVC GR-D70U camcorder attached (through the DV connection on the camcorder) to the pc with a firewire cable but I cannot get studio DV, or four other software programs to recognize the camcorder. I keep getting error messages that no camcorder is attached or initialized, etc. Am I missing something simple? Camcorder is set to play mode and is clearly turned on. Any help for this neophyte would be appreciated.!

    For some bizarre reason you can disable the DV port on a lot of camcorders. I would check that this is enabled (usually through an on screen menu somewhere). It's a long shot but won't take a couple of mins to at least check it.

    That's my opinion. If you don't like it I have others

    System: Apple Macbook Pro 17, and an external Freecom 500GB eSATA drive.
    Software: Final Cut Studio 2 (FCP 6, Motion 3, Soundtrack Pro 2, Color, DVD Studio Pro 4, Compressor 3), Sonicfire Pro 4.5
    Favourite Resources:, Free DVD menus, Ken Stone's FCP Page, Wikivid
