Camera flooded, can I save my movies

We were using the camera in its underwater house and on the last day it flooded.  looks like the camera is done but the SD chip seems OK.  How can we download the pictures without going through the camera?

    I have a card reader and it will not read the SD card. According to the JVC book you can only download through the camera....does anyone else have a solution?

    I have tried the hair dryer.. no avail. Yes all the movies are on an external SD card.

If the card reader is not reading the SD card, then the card format is damaged.
As the damage is physical, there is no way recover the data using home equipment.

If files were importants then you can call the number listed on the following website, and pay a fee for recovery.

Ok here are the steps that I would try.

#1 DO NOT power up the camera again.

IF there is any chance of you recovering it, you cannot put any power to it.

Take a hair dryer and heat it up from about 6 inches away.

Does it have an internal mem card that you can remove?

    The JVC GZ-MG155 is equipped with a 30 GB internal, non-removable hard disk drive.

    Tell me how sure you are that the movies were recorded onto this external Chip/SD card. Did you format it through the camera and select it to be the recording path.

    If you did, it should be accessable through dos because you would have to have formated it through the camera. There has to be a file system on there somewhere, and at the dos level, it should tell you if there is a file system.

    I might try some recovery software,
    http://store.lexar.com/imagerescue3/inde...
    http://www.cardrecovery.com/download.asp get the trail version and if it works, it should show you something. You may have to buy it, and I'm sure there are free programs out there to do the same thing.

    Something to Try???


  • charles durando Jan 14, 2009

    I have a JVC with the same specs and I just triple checked
    you absolutlely should be able to read that in windows.

Can't see video from intova SP1


For SP1, please use micro SD card up to 32 GB that is class 10 if you want to record 1080p HD video. If you are using a class 10 card and you still cannot view your video, please be sure that you have the H.264 video codec in the video player software in your computer. Also, be sure your computer is compatible with HD video. It should be running either Windows 7 or 8 if it's a PC or OS 10 or higher if it's a Mac. If you are using a class 10 card, have H.264 codec and compatible OS on your computer and still cannot see video, then the camera may be recording corrupted video files in which case, please contact Intova directly by email: fatema@intova.net or call us at 808-837-0074 for customer service/warranty coverage. Thanks

Saving video to your computer


You would normally get a cd with the camera with the driver and any software for transfering and capturing video on, but if you have'nt you can use Windows Movie Maker. Assuming you are on XP, this can be found on strat>all programmes>accesories>windows movie maker. From within this easy to use programme you can import video straight from you camera, you then choose which frames to use by dragging down to the bottom timeline, and then the programme will ask what you wish to do with the movie, be it for e-mailing or web and will compress the file automatically and when you have clicked finish video ask if you wish to email it directly from the programme or save to your pc.

Insert sd card camcorderst recognize any micro sdcard


If your SP1 camera cannot recognize the micro SD card, please be sure you are using a card between 4GB to 32GB, class 10 speed. If possible, please try another micro SD card to be sure that the card that is not recognized is not defective. If you are using a card with correct specifications and it is not recognized, then the micro SD card port on your camera may be defective. Please contact Intova directly via email: fatema@intova.net or call us at 808-837-0074 for customer service/warranty coverage. Thanks.

My intova sp1 won't turn on.why?


Please try to reset camera by inserting and pushing the end of a paper clip into the reset hole located on the camera back next to the Micro SD card port. Please also try to recharge the Li-ion battery by connecting he camera to a computer via the supplied USB cable. If either solutions don't work, then please contact Intova directly by either calling 808-837-0074 or email kevin@intova.net

How to Save a Movie From a Panasonic NV-GS11 Video Camera to a PC


I bought my Panasonic NV-GS11 video camera from eBay and for the cost, it seemed perfect. I liked the feel of the camera, it's simplicity of use, until I tried to transfer my movie to a PC and that's when the trouble started!
Normally, when you connect a camera using the USB connection, your PC recognises the device and you can use it straight away. I had no end of problems getting the PC to do this and I thought the driver was at fault.
The answer, in hindsight, is that in the menu there are 2 items for the USB Function, "web camera" and "DV Studio" - the software for acquiring still photos from the camera. Choose "web camera", connect your camera to the PC via the USB connection and switch on the camera using the Playback mode. Check "My Computer" and there should be a video camera icon with "USB Video Device" beside it. Double click onto this icon will open up a page, where if you start your movie from the camera, you can see the results on the PC screen. Unfortunately, there's nowhere on this page where you can save the movie itself.
I searched with Google and found the answer. Many people had the same issue but there didn't seem to any answers. Eventually, I found one reply on a forum way down the page which provided the solution.
Download Windows Movie Maker from the Microsoft page. This is for Windows XP:-
http://www.download.com/Windows-Movie-Maker-Windows-XP-/3000-13631_4-10165075.html
Open Movie Maker and you will see " Capture from video device" This allows you to save your movie into a directory of your choice and later burn the movie onto a CD using your favourite software.

Playback recording


You can use ImageMixer to capture and save the file as an mpeg movie, which then can be copied onto a CD or DVD. Look for the capture option in the software. Also check the preferences (click on the tool icon in the upper right corner, 2nd from the end) to set (or at least know) where the file is being saved. It's possible it was saved (if you used capture) but you may not realize it.
