Connect your camera to your PC via USB, your camera will ask you what to do, choose back-up, connecting for the first time, your PC will prompt you to insert CD, follow the instructions your PC tells you until its done. Good luck

Connect the camera to your pc using USB CABLE.
once you connected the camera, open the LCD display and turn on the camera "on" button.  
then choose backup option. 
It will then load your camera hard drive as a external hard drive on your pc. :P

I lost the manual and CDs that came with my JVC Everio GZ-MG21U. Am trying to transfer my videos to my laptop using Windows Vista but won't accept it. I need to download the driver. Pls help.


You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at
http://books.jvc.com/booklist.asp?Model=GZ-MG21U

You might want to consider NOT using a driver. The best way to download videos and pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy videos and pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any video/photo cataloging program, such as Windows Movie Maker and Windows Photo Gallery.

There is a tutorial for transferring video from tyhis camera to a computer on the Sony website. Unfortunately, you do not say what kind of computer (PC or Mac) or operating system you have, and you have to specify this on the website to get the right instructions.

The instructions for a Windows computer are as follows:

Movie player applications must support mpeg 2 playback to open these files properly. Refer to the software manufacturer for additional information and available updates.
  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. Make sure the camcorder is turned off.
  3. Connect the camcorder to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
  4. Plug the AC power adapter into an electrical wall outlet and then connect it to the camcorder.
  5. Open the LCD screen on the camcorder.
  6. Turn on the camcorder.
  7. The USB SELECT screen will be displayed on the LCD; touch the HDD icon.
  8. Open the My Computer window on the computer.
  9. In the My Computer window, double-click the icon that represents the camcorder and then navigate through the folder structure to locate the video you want to transfer. Note: The camcorder will be listed in the My Computer window as an additional hard drive.
  10. Click to select the video or image files you want to transfer. Note: If your are using a High Definition Handycam® Camcorder, Sony recommends copying and pasting the AVCHD folder to the hard drive of the computer before accessing its contents.
  11. Type CTRL+C to copy the files.
  12. Click on the computer folder to which you want to copy the video or still image files.
  13. Type CTRL+V to paste the file into the computer folder.

The Sony page for your camera has many links for information and downloads, including software downloads, at THIS PAGE

Unfortunately, the camera won't let you transfer anything if it's not on AC power. You'll have to buy a replacement cable in order to transfer the video, unless you saved it on the SD card and not the internal hard drive. If you saved your video to the SD card, you can just remove the card and copy it to any computer that has a card reader.

Palmcorder Vidoe Transfer Issues


usb will ONLY work for tranfering "pikts" you "must"use a firewire cable,port,and software(sony vegas,pinnacle,ect')to"capture"or "save"the video to your laptop.(being you have a mini-dv tape cam)
heres the low-down, unless your laptop has at least 1-gig ram,160+gig hard drive,firewire port,dvd burner,2.5ghz processor,,,it's goin to be a struggle.
capturing a good quality video to your comp hogs a LOT of space(25-35 gigs per hour of footage!),dvd creation (authoring)is another world!.
if you simply want to put somthing on the web,buy a nice photo camera with video recording,or a mini DVD disk camcorder,OR-a HDD(hard drive)camcorder,,,ALL the priors dont requier anything "special"to get it on to your laptop,and can be edited for posting by simple progs like "movie maker(xp,vist)or i movie(mac),but if you want a dvd of your final product,you MUST have a "authoring"prog like sony vegas or pinnacle.
--from my experience for tape camcorders,firewire is the only and best way to get it to your harddrive(set  capture settings to "mpeg2,or,AVI"
good luck!!

PC won't recognize


I don't know why they did this, but this camera requires the camera to be plugged into the AC adapter (via battery charger) in order to be able to transfer the data to the computer.

Lost files with camcorder everio gz-hd7


From my experience with Hard Drive based Camcorders.. you're best bet is to treat them like a computer.. use an application like Data Rescue II to recover the files from the camcorder.. once the files are recovered, reformat the HD on teh camcorder and you should be abel to start recording new footage again.
