Jazz HDV178 Video Cam will play only sound/no video on my Mac
Software supplied by Jazz for the mac is incompatible, Windows only, so i use my pc to download and create files. But when I import so the video file and try and play it on the Mac all I get is sound. I tried adding plugins, codecs, converters and nothing helps. The file type is AVI, why won't it play on the Mac and is there a way to convert to another format perhaps that would solve the problem?

AVCHD stands for Advance Video Coding High Definition. Its a video format jointly developed by Sony and JVC. Windows pre-installed applications doesn't natively support this format.You would need the supplied software (Picture Motion Browser v.5) to playback or view your media files.Although it's possible to manually import files to your PC [Mac computers would need to have an intel-based processor, imovie'08 or '09, and NO SD (Standard Definition) FILES recorded to be able to transfer videos] still a you would need a mediaplayer software that supports and recognize AVCHD files for playback. AVCHD files are located in the AVCHD folder>BDMV>Stream. Files would have a .mts or .m2ts extension. So either you use the supplied software or invest on a AVCHD compatible video capturing or editing software.Hope this helps... (update may be released within this month for PMB v.5.2 but downloading orig software for this 2010 model cam, would be better to check this site (you can download PMB software if you don't have it): http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/camcorders/hdh/hdh.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=HDR-XR200VE
If you contact the manufacture of the device they probably will be able to help you locate the cord.
Also radioshack or best buy or a reputable electronics dealer should also be able to help you get what you need. ok?
hope this helps you out some..

I suppose you're with mac os x (10.x.x) version, so : switch off your cam (or simply close the screen), plug your delivered with the cam usb cable into the mac first, and into the Jazz cam at last. That's it, you're done !! The cam should appear as a drive (mass storage mode is by default) or usb thumbdrive on your desktop.
