    My insurance company has been kind enough to buy me a brand new JVC GR-DVX707 which is very nice thank you very much, but today I tried to connect it to my PC. I,ve used the USB cable supplied and I,m able to transfer still images to the PC but not Movie clips. I,m using Windows 98. What am I doing wrong?

    You need a Firewire PCI PC capture card,£50ish.It should mention more on this in the instruction manual.

    Are you sure?

    My GX7 manual is quite packed,so it might be hard to spot it.

    Anyway,check out www.lynxdv.com for your Firewire card.

    I,ll have a good rake through the manual and see if I can spot anything. After loading the software provided it does say somewhere in there that (and I quote).
    "In Windows ® 98 and Windows ® 98 Second Edition, DV (IEEE1394) capturing is not supported. In Windows ® 98, USB capturing is not supported)".
    Does this mean that as long as I am using Windows 98 I will not be able to edit my videos using my PC?

    I'm running '98SE on my current PC with no Firewire probs on both a Sony and the Panny GX7.

    I,ve shot an e-mail off to JVC to see what they say on the subject.
    I just need confirmation before I go spending money I haven,t got.

    Where did you get it from?

    Your best bet is to take it into the shop,or a shop,where you bought it from and hook it upto a computer with Firewire and get a demo of how and if it works.Do you know anyone with Firewire?Jessops are always very helpful to me.

    If you can't afford Firewire yet,you can always edit via video.It's a lot easier in my opinion.

    Unfortunately I had to buy it from Dixons, who know precisely sod all about most things. I hate going into those shops, they think your thick as s#*t and that you will take in all the sales crap that they practice in front of their bedroom mirrors every night. You may have gathered from that little rant that I,m not their biggest fan. I,ll wait and see what JVC have to say and I,ll let you know.
    Would I be a lot better off if I installed windows XP anyway.

    I would stick with '98 for now,as you might encounter a whole load of more problems with XP.

    Go and see the manager of Dixons if it comes to it,or pop down to a Jessops store,their after sales service really is excellent and they are very knowledegable.

    Why do you think I might get more probs with XP. I thought that operating system was designed with digital photography and the camcorder user in mind.
    PS. Don,t even mention Dixons to me, they are like my R's

    Reading some Forums on XP,it's hit and miss with some people.'98SE is enough for me and does everything I want.Anyway,I thought you had no money,as XP is £90 odd and Firewire is half that price.

    I think I,ll just hang fire and see what JVC have to say.
    Your right I don,t have any money but blokes always seem to find it when they need a new gadjet don,t they. Balls to food and non essentials like that, there's a new gizmo I need!
