Question about JVC Video Cameras

1 Answer

Can't access/copy video files on JVC gz-mg37aa

Have had a JVC gz-mg37aa for a couple of years now and want to copy the files on the camera to computer. Have installed software that came with camera onto xp computer following JVC's instructions. Then connected the camcorder to the compter using usb. When connected the camera displays 'USB Mass Storage' as it should but in 'my computer' it only comes up as removable disk 'e' not 'everio_hdd' as the manual says it should. When 'removable e' is opened it comes up with 'the disk in drive E is not formatted. Do you want to format it now? Yes/No?'

I haven't clicked yes and i don't know whether i should because i thought clicking yes might wipe (format) all the files on the camera thus loosing footage of honeymoon and recent baby videos.

Please help!

    Thanks, have tried it on my new vista work laptop and the same thing occurs, when 'removable e' is opened it comes up with 'the disk in drive E is not formatted. Do you want to format it now? Yes/No?'

    Not sure if JVC have any solutions, maybe?

No disc for my JVC Everio GZ-HD7U

You don't need the disc. Buy Corel's latest videostudio x2 for editing. To extract the video files from camera just plug into computer with USB cable and search the camera for files.

JVC Everio GZ-HD3 Flash Media Camcorder

If you plug in the USB cable from the camera to a Windows XP machine, the Everio disk looks like a USB disk drive, and I can copy the files over using Windows Explorer. In order to convert them to MPG files, we are using Cyberlink PowerDirector5 NE Express, since the camera produces TOD files, which need to be converted to MPG. We are using MAGIX as the video editor after the conversion from TOD to MPG.

My JVC everio GZ-MG555us did not work with my HD laptop window Vista.

When you plug in the camera XP should see it as an external drive.
You will need to copy all the MPG files over manually.
Check the JVC site regularly for a Vista software pack.
