Hi, I have a camera JVC g hd111e and I have a problem every time I try to download to pc, The pc do not recognize the camera, Says he does not find, Or Adobe Premier does not recognize the camera, What can I do?
The beginning of this video shows the correct procedure for settings on the camera an the sequence order you should follow to the camera to connect to a computer successfully. http://www.steadi-onfilms.com.au/vlog/?p=61
The video is actually for a Mac and Final Cut but this part of the video still applies.
It is important not to "hot plug" the Firewire cable on these cameras, this can cause damage to the camera that is an expensive repair.
Try a different Firewire cable or try the Firewire cable on a different device to eliminate the possibility the cable is the problem.
The camera uses a different circuit on the Firewire board for HDV and DV. If the Firewire cable checks out OK try recording some footage in the alternative format and reconnecting the camera with the settings for exporting that format set in the camera before connecting it to a computer. If the computer can then see the camera it is probable you have a blown firewire circuit in the camera.
