Spectacular Footage, and no way to access it.

    I used my old JVC HD-7 camcorder today to get some aerial footage. After reviewing it on the built-in screen, it was spectacular...like commercial quality awesomeness (which is good cause it was a paid gig anyway, so I REALLY need this footage).

    The camcorder has a built-in hard drive, so the only way to access the footage is to USB it to the computer. Now, for the first time since I've had this camcorder (since 2007), my computer doesn't recognize it and won't let me access my footage.

    Windows, you suck. icon_sad.gif

    Oh, and this camcorder has broadcast quality video. That's why I still use it for paid gigs.

    Come visit, and you can see it on the tiny camcorder screen.

    There are no Windows drivers on the JVC site?

    I've used it before with this computer...no problems there. I'll buy a new USB cable tomorrow (or three) and see if that fixes the problem.

    Worst case scenario I'll break even and take it to a computer guru to extract the footage.
