    I have an old JVC video camera and needed some help.


    I'm wanting to start using this camera,(its been my brothers and he hasn't used it much). Although i don't have the cable to charge it, or a cable to get the video off of it. Nor do i even know what cable to get to transfer the media off of it, (usb, DV)? Or if the even sell a cord to plug it into my wall.

    So the question is this,

    1. Where could i buy a charger for this camera, or could i charge it with my computer.
    2.What cord to use to transfer the stuff i record and get it onto my computer.
    3. If i need any additional drivers or software.
    4. I tried connecting it with a DV to firewire cable and did not see it on my computer, dont know if this is the right cord, it wont see if cuzz its battery is dead, or i dont have the drivers for it.


    Thanks guys.

    A Google search produced these results: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=GR-D73U&btnG=Search
    The first listed shows two models of chargers for use with that camcorder.

    According to this: http://e-catalog.rusbiz.com/product/8865.html your camcorder has a DV port (AKA Firewire, iLink, IEEE1394). You'd need a 4 pin to 6 pin Firewire cable to connect to your Mac.

    See the link for #1

    If the battery is dead and you have no AC connection, it won't work. Period.
