Windows XP professional with SP2 does have the driver for JVC SR-VS30 deck installed! I also have a VIA OHCI IEEE/fire wire port, and I solved the problem as follows: I connected the SR-VS30E to the FW, turned the deck on, and opened up the device manager. I right clicked and uninstalled everything in the Imaging Device, as well as the AV/C Tuner. In the device manager, I opened Action-Scan for hardware changes. When it detected the device, I pointed the wizard to: install from list – don’t look, I will chose the driver - next. In the device list, I chose “show all devices” and after this I chose JVC – JVC DV Tape Recorder/Player. I ignored the warning by windows not to install and installed it any way. A bug in the SR –VS 30 PnP information code, probably induces the warning in Windows. By checking the device manager again, I found out I have solved the problem. Good luck.
SR-VS30E firewire driver
This series of steps worked for me! Thanks Hans! I'm operating on Windows XP home, and I was using Professional previously until I re-installed my system recently do to another issue, and indeed I ran into the problem of windows no longer being able to find the driver for my JVC-SR-VS30. It does seem that perhaps the reason windows does not find the driver automatically is because it is not digitally signed, but if you search for it on your own it installs great and is happy. Best of luck to all! - Carey
