I have a recording on my JVC GR-D70 MiniDV video camera that I'd like to make video of on my computer. I'm having several issues . . . 1. The camera has both a USB and a firewire connection. My PC (Dell E310 less than a year old) only recognizes the camera when I use the USB; however, USB can only be used to capture still images, not moving video. 2. The PC won't recognize the camera in video software programs. This is a fairly common issue on the internet, I've found. I Already contacted Dell & JVC. JVC could fix it -- for the cost of the camera! I've never used this function before, so it's likely this function never worked on this camera (it's three years old). 3. I installed a IEEE 1394 card on my computer, which is functioning fine; however, computer still won't recognize camera. Any software I use also says "no video device is connected," when it is. Because of this, I can't connect the camera to the PC directly. 3. To work around this, I recorded the video from the camera miniDV tape onto a DVD+RW using a DVD recorder. When I play the video on the PC straight from the DVD in either Media Player 11 or Nero Showtime, it plays fine. However, after I've edited it or saved it to my hard drive, the video skips, and the audio & video get out of sequence. Any suggestions???
