On the camcorder there is a function that allows you to create a play-list. This play-list group your recording into one file allowing for continuous playback (BUT... the original files cannot be deleted or the playlist will be deleted as well) burn a dvd from the playlist. Automatic grouping doesn't happen automatically on 20003-2008 JVC model camcorders. You would have to do this after you have finished you recordings. Another option is while using the software that comes with the camcorder this allows you to import what files you what to save and group it that way by the date. There is no need to edit if you don't want to.

Recorded scenes show as question marks


They are recorded as something that the computer does not know what to do with. You should have a cd with that camera that can convert the files. It could also be that there is a problem with the recording.

How do I pause when recording?


I understand that you wish to Pause and Continue recording to record several scenes in a single file. Unfortunately, HDD Camcorders(regardless of manufacturer) do not have the option to pause and record in a single file. Once you press STOP, it will save the current file and When you press the Record again, it will start record as a new file. This is because of the characteristics of the HDD media. If you wish to have the video as a single file, please use a video editing software to combine the videos.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Created a DVD from my FS100, unable to get sound when playing it on my home DVD player however have sound on Laptop using WinDVD. Do I need to change format of DVD and if so to what file type ? thanks much


It's the format of the movie clip (.mod). The files need to be converted to .mpg in order to get your sound working with WMC or other video player. Google for a .mod file converter and you'll find several out there.

Cannot link scenes together


there is no way you can link scenes together on your hdd handycam. one possible solution to this issue is to burn or write movies onto a dvd using the supplied software, then all movies you burned would have seemless playback.

Unable to Read/upload photos from my Camcorder to PC


Your computer should be reading your connected camcorder as an additional drive or hard drive (not folder) when connected. Here are some tips to make this easier for you (Make sure your camcorder is on movies not pictures when you do this):


Steps:

1. Connect you usb to you computer and camcorder
2. Camcorder ask do you want to playback, backup, create dvd, direct print.... Choose playback
3. Option pops up on your computer.. Select "Take No Action"
4. Go into My Computer and open the E: or Everio_HDD
5. >>For movies- Select SD-Video - Folder PRG002 or PRG001 are where your movie files is located
Drag and drop .MOD files to your desktop **.MOI files are indexes of the .MOD files and will not convert **

>>For Pictures- Select DCIM - Folder 101JVCSO or 100JVCSO - Drag and Drop to desktop - NO FILE CONVERSION NECESSARY

6. Change the file extension to .MPG

** If you find yourself haveing issues changing the file extension, open my computer... select tools... go to folder options.... uncheck "Hide extension for known file types", check it back when your finished if you have kids.. I do for my computer.***

**You are simply creating copies of your files when you drag and drop you movies and pics***

No changing of file extensions is necessary if just saving to computer and you have the software.... but file extension change will allow you to view back movies with Windows Media Player.

Hope this helps

Lost the disks that came with hybrid everio(JVC) 30gb


You can go to the cybelink website and download a trial copy of the software that came with the camcorder. The software is ; Cyberlink Power Cinema, Power Directer, and Power Producer. The camcorder's format is also recognizable by Mac. Or if you dont want ot eventually buy the new software you can manually change the file extension of you movies off the camcorder to .mpg to view back your video using windows media player. Until you get editing software, you would not be able to edit your movies. Adobe Premier Elements 4 works fine with .mov files and Final cut pro.

Can't save individual scenes as separate mpg files


Instead of using the camera suite... download your video from your camcorder directly to your PC in a folder (video's). there you will see each individual file (scene) that you took that day instead of one large scene. Then you can download/edit whatever scene you want into movie maker or just copy a sene right to a dvd

MOD file


The MOD file is just MPG format,
a simple MS-DOS command line instruction to rename your MOD files to MPG files (first copy your camcorder-harddisk files to PC-harddisk). I use to do the same!
Just execute the following command in the proper directory (or place this line in RENAME_MOD2MPG.BAT, and execute BAT file by doubleclick); the command assumes the JVC 3hexa-digit method of numbering:

ren MOV???.MOD MOV???.MPG

You also have to plug it into the power source. They put it together with the charger. Get the charger and you will see that you can plug the AC adaptor cable in the other end. This allows you to power up when you are using the USB.
