JVC GR-HD1 PC connectivity trouble

Iím trying to use the firewire link to connect my JVC GR-HD1 to my XP Pro machine running Service Pack 2. It has a P4 2.8Ghz hyperthreaded chip with 512MB of RAM on an MSI 865PE NEO2 motherboard.

Iíve tried this so many times, I am getting foggy on the details of what I have and havenít tried, but no matter what I do the HD Capture Utility does not show the camera in the drop down list. I have set the camera to i.Link SW instead of Auto, set the play mode switch to Video, set the I.Link out to MPEG2, and even tried a different firewire cable. I have also tried putting in a tape with known HD on it and had it playing while I connected and disconnected the i.Link cable. Nothing.

Windows device manager doesnít show the camera as being connected at all regardless of what I do, however the Windows registry shows occurrences of ĎAVC compliant DV camcorderí connected under my 1394 device (which is OHCI Compliant). I have attempted to remove this registry entry and try again, but still nothing. Windows does not recognize that a device has been attached when I connect the cable to the camera. I do not honestly recall if it ever did, but based on the registry entry, I would think it must have at some point.

Any ideas? I have numerous tapes with HD footage shot and no way to get it out of the camera.

Did you use the procedure given on page 9 in the "Software installation and USB/i.link Connection Guide"? (I have HD10, but should be the same).

This is the box that appears when you connect HD1 for the first time. Make sure switch on the HD1 is in MPG. You might have to uninstall other drivers first.

1. Click [Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)] and then click [Next]. The driver search dialog box appears.

2. Click [Don't search. I will choose the driver to install], and then click [Next]. The Hardware Update Wizard dialog box appears.

3. Click [Sound, Video, and Game Controllers], and then click [Next]. The dialog box to select manufacturer and model appears.

4. Click [JVC] for manufacturer and [JVC Tape Device] for model, then click [Next]. The Update Driver Warning box appears. If not go to step 6.

5. Click [Yes]. The Completing Found New Hardware Wizard dialog box appears.

6. Click [Finish].

When you plug in and power the HD1, "JVC Tape Device" will appear under "Sound, video, and game controllers".

Good luck!
