  1. Hi,

    I have been trying for ages to get a driver/firmware for the JVC Camcorder SPCA 536, but have not been sucessful on Google.

    Im also looking for the driver for the Texas Instruments MiniMouse # 2580947-000 ,

    Do note that this camera is over 7 years old (well first released then)
    Maybe time to update ;) I've gone through 3 digital cameras in as many years

    Its a usefull camera, and although old, I want to keep it. Hopefully, JVC can give me the needs.

    Which version of Windows are you running? If it's Vista or Windows 7 there's also a good chance drivers that old will only work on XP or earlier ..

    /* edit */
    But if you are running XP, give a shout.. as there's a chance i might be able to find something (or at least i'm willing to take a look)

    I rang JVC Aus' via the numbers above, and they told me there is no such device.

    It is Chinese made, so maybe thats why I am having trouble. I have various software, so it is recognised, but I wanted to get the proper drivers from manafucture.

    Try the driver suggested. If you still have issues
    • Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post

    Thank you,

    Ill try it and let you hnow it goes.

    Its interesting how over the years I have come across old seconhand driver software, and let a lot of it go. Now, im sure it would have been useful to have stored it all on the inet, rather than people just tossing it all out.

    I tried the driver, it loaded OK, hit the .exe all OK, but it didnt seem to work. The window appeared, but it wouldn't recieve any video or streaming.

    I think there was a bit missing.
