    I have a JVC GR-SXM920 camcorder (SVHS-C) camcorder that has a built-in digital camera. I loaded all the appropriate software to my PC (with Windows 98) but every time I try to transfer digital photos from my camcorder to my PC I get a message saying "TWAIN driver not found", or something to that effect.
    I've looked up "twain drivers" on the internet but I found what seemed like multiple versions.
    How do I find the appropriate version?
    I can't seem to find the right "twain" driver that would work with my JVC camcorder...I've read through all the manuals and it doesn't even mention "twain drivers" any where in it.
    Can anyone offer a solution?
    Thanks!
    (btw, I don't know a whole lot about computers, but I know a thing or two.)

    Twain is a kind-of generic driver set for imaging devices. It's most commonly seen with scanners.
    Now, I'm not familiar with your camera Jerry, but my Fuji digi-cam is seen by Windows as a removable storage device (i.e. a drive!) when it's connected via USB. Nothing about Twain at all.
    If your camera connects via USB, I would try removing all the software you've currently installed for it, rebooting Windows, connecting the camera and just seeing what happens. With a bit of luck, Windows will prompt for the drivers at which point you point it to look at the driver CD.

    I agree with Rob. When connected via the USB cable, my Kodak DC4800 is treated as another drive. For it to work, I have to set my camera to "Review". You may want to check the manual to see if there is a setting (other than the one you use to record movies or take photos) for reviewing/transfering.
    Just a thought...
