Open Question

I have a JVC GZ-MS120SAA when I copy videos to my PC using everio software the computrer crashes. If I try to run a video using windows media player, it will not run the file, can you help please

I imported video and photo files from the camcorder to my PC usinf the everio software that came with the camcorder, my PC is running windows XP. When I go to play the files the computer crashes. I then thought to just by pass the everio software by impoting from the SD card, but windows media player will not play the files. My lap top is a DELL latitude E6510. My previous laptop did play videos I had imported from the same video camera, however I had imported them without the everio software.

Video streaming is possible with DV camcorders thanks to the Firewire port (IEEE1394), which works very much like a digital video in/out connection. Basically, the camera just sends video, and if there's a computer attached, it receives the video and decides what to do with it on a computer.

USB doesn't work that way, normally. Most tapeless camcorders automatically set up the webcam as a storage device, which is a very distinct thing from a video streaming device.  A storage device is just a disc of some kind... it will show up under some letter (eg, K:) in Windows, when you attach the camcorder.  

Some USB camcorders allow for a "webcam" or "streaming" mode... I didn't find any specifics on your JVC, but I know some of the Panasonics support this. There are two ways. One is that, if you have the camera in record/standby mode, it may just go automatically into webcam mode when you attach USB.

The other way is that the camera will have something in the menus, like "Live mode" or "Webcam mode" that instructs it to configure USB for video streaming rather than storage-class attachement.

And of course, some of the tapeless camcorders have a Firewire port, just like a DV camcorder, which is there specifically to allow for streaming video, etc. You could use your camcorder as a web camera over Firewire, given the proper software... though you might find that's just as expensive as buying
a webcam.

And given the price of actual webcams, I would consider buying one
rather than adding wear and tear to my camcorders, just based on 
price. This is the same  reason I have a DV tape rewind device.. $20 device, $2000
camcorder... easy math.

SOURCE: PC does not recognize the video recordings of my JVC Everio GZ-MG21

Actually if you just change the .MOD endings to a .MPG it should work just try it on a file you have copied but keep the original intact. I also had the same problem with the JVC piece of junk I bought. This is what I found out on the net. It works but I don't know if there is and loss in the process

SOURCE: Playback on PC has no sound

Are you playing the video back through the camcorders utility ? Sometimes by clicking on the file through windows explorer you will get the picture but no sound, this happens for the Sony camcorder but is fixed by running the playback through the motion picture browser application supplied with the camcorder.

Problem is with the ribbon cable interconnect between camera and screen. Available as spare, but very tricky to replace. Probably a camera shop is your best bet.

Use this site to see if there are any compatibilities problems with vista.

Then there is an upgrade site from cyberlink just for JVC customers. Sorry though, looks like you might have to pay for the upgrade.

Hopefully someone comes up with a free way to connect and share with your PC.

If you plug in the USB cable from the camera to a Windows XP machine, the Everio disk looks like a USB disk drive, and I can copy the files over using Windows Explorer. In order to convert them to MPG files, we are using Cyberlink PowerDirector5 NE Express, since the camera produces TOD files, which need to be converted to MPG. We are using MAGIX as the video editor after the conversion from TOD to MPG.
