Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Camcorder

1 Answer

Is there a compatibility problem with Everio camcorder & iMacs?

I can download film to the iMac; into iMovie - everything is fine. Am recording at 16.9. (not using Everio software as apparently Macs don't & can't use it). i use PAL in Australia. As soon as I try to transfer the film file to iDVD in oder to burn a disc, (in fact as soon as I drop the film into the 'drop zone", the film is concertined (elongted) & burns to disk in that elongated form. What is the problem? Also, can't get the iMac to read the MOD files. What is wrong? Please help. Jo

Do you have iMovie? On mine, with any camcorder I've had, when I have iMovie running and plug the camcorder in it automatically changes to the Record mode. Click on the forward button and it will start the camcorder. Press the Record button when you get to the part you want to record. You can then edit the beginning or end of the section to use the portion(s) you want. The software controls the camcorder to go frontwards or backwards. Works very slick. Not sure what to suggest if you don't use iMovie.

The computer is no longer detecting the camcorder for several reasons. It could be the ports on the computer, it could be the cable that you're using to connect the camcorder to the iMac, or it could be the camcorder itself.

Try connecting the camcorder into different USB or FireWire port of the iMac.

Try using different cable.

Try connecting the camcorder into different computer to test the device.

If all else fails, power cycle the camcorder by turning it off and remove the battery for about 10 minutes. Then turn it back on. Otherwise, contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Imac and downloading video


Though I am not familiar with this camcorder, it probably creates an MPEG4 file. To get it into iMovie (depending on your version of iMovie) you may have to convert it to something that iMovie can understand. Try opening the file with a free program called MPEG Streamclip (www.squared5.com). If it is recognized, export it to either Quicktime or DV. IMovie should be able to open one of those.

Transferring video on cassette to Mac OSX


Are you transferring from cassette to memory card and then to Imac? certainly there is software supported by Imac to accomplish this. You can convert your videos to MPEG format using Imagemixer then try uploading with another program. Imac and OSX should have websites that list compatible software.
