Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG30 Camcorder
I have tried this on a Mac as well as a Windows based PC. It see's my camera but doesn't find any video files. Finds and loads and transfers photos, but not videos. I have been running on Ultra fine and only have another hour of video left. I hope someone has a fix.
This is interesting...had me going hmmmm.... I have listed a few tips and tricks in the past for maually converting you video from you Everio. In the tips allows you to find your videos as well. Try these steps and see if this helps (first make sure you camcorder is in movie mode not picture mode first):
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
FILE EXTENSION CHANGE IS NOT NECESSARY IN YOUR CASE OR IF YOU DONT WANT TOO!!!
** If you find yourself having issues changing the file extension, open my computer... select tools... go to folder options.... un-check "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***
These step will allow you to view back you movies using Windows Media Player until you get your software.
Hope this helps
