Trouble to connect a DV Camera to USB

By christophe.labbe ·
I have a JVC DV Camera ( DVP3 ) and a PC running Windows 98 SE...

I have also a 1394 IEEE card in my compter and I use it to connect my camera to the firewire port and get the video to the computer. ( that work fine )

BUT with this camera I can also take some picture stored on a small card ) and transfer to the PC trough the USB port ...And I have some problem to do it fine ...

After some troubles due to some missing drivers ( USBNTMAP.SYS and USBRESTOR.SYS ) not found on my Windows 98SE CD ( I finally found them on the web ) I can connect successfully the camera to the USB port and the "unplug and eject Hardware" windows shows it successfully as "Disk on JVC DV Camera" but in "My Computer" I do not have the REMOVABLE DISK icon has describe in the JVC tech doc ...

Any ideas of what is missing on my PC ?
( Note : I have a drive C and D and my CD is on drive E )

Trouble to connect a DV Camera to USB

Those 2 files don't appear to be part of the "standard" W98 USB drivers.

Anyway, I would start by updating your motherboard / chipset drivers.

Then, look in device manager, select view devices by connection, and look for the camera to be attached to the USB ports.

It is possible that there is a conflict between the firewire driver and the USB port driver.

If the problem persists, remove the firewire card from device manager, shutdown, and move the card to a different slot.

Finally it works !!!

I had to ajust the setting in device manager because the drivers used was not the one installed by the CD from JVC ... ???!!
