Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG27 Camcorder
I am unable to record additional video due to this message, even though I have deleted over 33% of the files on the camera. I perform the disk cleanup function - assuming it will defragment and open up some space. No dice! My USB is not functional either, so I cannot download the important video clips to my computer. I am at a loss - I need to salvage these files!
On page 39 of the instruction manual it tells you how to format both the hard drive or the SD card. If you do not have a copy of the manual here is the link:
click the "instruction manual which is the fourth choice...
also be sure any medium (HD, SD) is UNLOCKED when doing this. If you do not weant to completely format see page 40.
And for your comfort, a Mac does not convert anything on the camera. But for the future, don't drag and drop into the trash bin, use delete on the camera. This is the same problem I've seen w/others but calling Apple-who blames it on the PC format-who blames it on the Mac-and both blame it on JVC, gets you nowhere. This is very typical when multiple companies are involved.
If you need further help you may contact me privately.

You have to remove your video files from your camcorder by attaching it to your PC USB connection. All your video files are still on your hard drive even though you deleted them from the display screen. I had the same problem and now I'm good to go.
Connect your camcoder to your PC, access the Drive, find the folder and delete the files.

I had this problem as well, I kept getting a 'check card' msg on the camera when trying to use my SD memory card. I was able to fix by deleting all files and folders from the disk with disk inserted into my computer (after transferring all files to hard drive of course). I then reinserted the blank SD card into my camera and it worked like normal. Note: before ejecting the disk from your computer makes sure to right click on the SD drive and tell it to "eject". It is then safe to remove disk from computer.
