Hope you can help.
I have an old DV Camcorder (JVC GR-DVL200) I need to transfer footage from over to my PC.
I have a small widget that has a DV connection on one side, and a USB connection on the other. I have plugged this into the camcorder and I'm using a USB extension cable to connect this to my PC. I am attempting to use WinDV.exe to capture the footage but WinDV doe not recognise the camera. At the bottom of the WinDV screen is displayed 'Error: No video device found'.
How do I get WinDV to recognise my cam?
Any help is greatly appriciated.
*I'm new here, please be gentle

A 2000 DV camcorder? Some people here claim that DV over Firewire does not need drivers, this does not correspond to what I see. I have a JVC camcorder from about the same era (mine is a 1999 model), and I was not able to get it recognized by my system. I am just saying that even if you get a computer with Firewire port, it may not work. In this case SVideo output may be your best bet.

October, they have a Firewire to USB converter widget. It would appear they don't have a Firewire socket on their computer.
Many thanks for your feedback/advice.

Here is a photo of the converter widget.
When connected to my PC, the device manager was displaying 'unknown usb device (device descriptor request failed)'
Now, I am unsure whether this has anything to do with the widget I'm using or that the device driver isn't installed to my PC. I have attempted to look for the driver on the JVC website but I am unsure which one to install (if any).
Anyway, I hope this is enough for you to go on at the moment.
That's a scam, There is no such firewire to USB cable adapter, The two protocols work differently. Throw it away before it does harm to your computer or camcorder, if it hasn't done so, What adds insult to injury is that some of them are not even connected internally.
