Hi toyotaman1281

What media/format does the camera capture? [What type of model is it: analog -VHS tape/Super VHS tape --- or digital - DVC tape/CD/DVD]

If the camcorder is digital, you should be able to transfer the video directly to your hard drive using either a Firewire cable or a USB 2.0 cable [firewire is generally used for video] Not all PCs have a Firewire port, but it is easy to add to a desktop PC.

Most JVC camcorders come with software that can do the conversion for you. On the JVC support site, you can download the following programs, depending on your model:
JLIP Video Capture 3.1
JLIP Video Producer 2.0
JLIP Video Player 1.0
Card Navigator 1.0
USB Drivers (specific to the camcorder)
Video Navigator

If the JVC is digital, and uses any of the following file formats, you can use "Windows Movie Maker" to capture, edit, and convert the video --- asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv. Windows Movie Maker is a modest program, but it works fairly well, and is "free".

If the JVC is analog, you will need a capture device [either a video card with that capability, or a special add-on card, or externally connected converter device].

Best of luck
