Unable to Read/upload photos from my Camcorder to PC

I currently have a JVC Everio camcorder. It is the one with the 30GB Hard drive.
I have photos and films on this at the moment and when i try to upload this to a pc it is unable to do it.
The computer registers it when i have put it in (found new hardware) although when in My Computer it is unable to explore the folder.
The folders that come up are
EVERIO_HDD (E) - this expands out to be nothing
Removable disk (F) - when expanding this it comes up with an error, Please insert disk, please insert a disk into drive F

If could please help me with this it would be much appreciated as I am traveling and in need of downloading these photos.

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,
Luke

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

I had a ton of videos on my jvc Everio camcorder. i deleted them all thinking i already uploaded them on my hp laptop. i was wrong. They are not there. The upload went wrong and only a few videos went on...


Don't worry. There is a way to get back those deleted video files from your digital camcorder, but it is just possible. Because if those deleted files has been overwritten by new files you saved in, then there is no hope. But usually overwritten cases are hard to happen as long as the memory card or hard disk has enough volume.

Then, take so called data recovery program to handle the issue and see if you can grab some or all of the deleted files back. Here are some recovery software you may take a try.

If you are running Windows, try this video photo recovery program.
If you are using Mac OS X, turn to this Mac photo video recover software.

You should take care - before your files are recovered, do not save more files to the device concerned(do not take more videos or photos) in case overwritten situation will happen.

Please be noted that your camcorder memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.
