    I am looking for the QuickTime Component for Everio software plug-in.  The only thing I have been able to find on the internet is the update (patch) for the plug-in.  If someone has a copy that can provided it over the web, that would be great.  JVC says they cannot provide it and pass the buck to CyberLink, the company that made the software plug-in.  However, CyberLink will not provide telephone customer service without purchasing a plan for their technical service over the phone (they must be hurting for money).  In any case, it is not right that a consumer of the Everio camcorder should have to pay for anything when the CD they provided with the software required doesn't even install.

    JVC sucks.
    We just purchased a GZ-HD10U and the C.D. that came with it contained a PDF of the written manual.
    No software or patches of ANY kind.

    Back to "Best Buy" with it.

I installed the original quicktime plugin that came with the disk and i can't find the update so i have resorted to using Mpeg streamclip which reads the .tod file and then exporting from there in whatever format i have needed. It is long and tedious as the files i have are large - 10 mins is roughly 2 gig off the JVC 
It isn't perfect but it works

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

No disc for my JVC Everio GZ-HD7U

You don't need the disc. Buy Corel's latest videostudio x2 for editing. To extract the video files from camera just plug into computer with USB cable and search the camera for files.

My camera is not reconnized by the computer!

If you are using a Mac, you should also use the firewire cable (not a USB).  Using the Mac program that comes pre-installed on the mac, iMovie, you can then import the movie and save it using imovie. Then you can also, edit and clip and merge and add all kind of special effects, titles and more.
Hope this helps. Call me if you have more questions: 985-419-9937

I can't download my videos from my JVC GZ-HD7U into my PC using Magix Edit Pro.

Hi there,
It happens because you didn't install the quicktime plugin. once the quicktime is installed it will show the preview of the video so you can make your selection.
download the quicktime plugin:

if not download the VLC player. it will nearly play every format. Choose your .tod file and play it on vlc.

hope its helps :) by the way i got the same camera :P

My mac OS 10.5 driver (disc) for Everio GZ HD7 camcorder?????

Hey Brett, unfortunately FCP and iMovie are looking for a device over Firewire or a capture card (whichever you have set up). The driver off of the disk is actually quite useless under any Mac Os 10. Video editing programs unless older or PC based rarely use USB for video transfer hence why none of the apps are locating the camera. Unfortunately you'll have to transfer the files via USB as data and use a program like MPEGStreamclip to transcode them to a file format those programs will understand. JVC has released updated software but it seems to do nothing at all. I hope this helps.
P.S. you may need the MPEG 2 Codec to do the conversions wether you're using MPEGStreamclip or another application.
