Back up disconnecting

JVC Re: Back-up on my PC from my JVC Everio HDD Dear JVC, I am experiencing technical difficulty when backing up my files on my PC. I plug the USB cord into my JVC Everio and my PC no problem. I am able to copy and paste the desired files onto my PC. The problem comes when trying to disconnect my JVC camera. I have read the instructions, but my scenario is not addressed. When I finish downloading I have tried to turn the power off, disconnect manually from my PC by selecting the ?Safely remove hardware? icon in the bottom right of my tool bar, but no success. Every time I try I receive the following error: I love my JVC Everio camera and I would appreciate assistance to find how to properly disconnect the camera from my PC. Thank you, Kevin Banks kevinb@uccu.com

To Answer your question: If the PC says it safe to remove, this means that it has completed all data transaction between Camera and PC. The Camera will remain in the USB MASS STORAGE mode until the 5v USB is removed (USB cable disconnected from PC).

I suggest you read further and perform the procedure at the end of this LONG explaination. Sorry, I would have paraphrased if possible. The short version is that you do not need to worry about "Safely Removing" the camera.

The Term "SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE" is misleading. You run no risk in losing the original data if it is already backed up from the location you are writing from. For EXAMPLE, if it is saved on the Camera and you are only copying from the Computer to the PC....there is NO RISK of losing the data on your Camera by disconnecting the USB without safely removing.

The process of "Safely Removing" the camera is necessary if your Camera is set to "Cache" data as it writes to the PC.

If you do not have the camera set to "Cache" as it writes to the PC, you Do Not need to safely disconnect as the Data has been immediately transferred and stored to the Computer Hard Drive.
Cache means that the Camera files are written to a volitile memory location on the computer before final storage to the Computers Hard Drive. If the Camera is setup to do this and you do not safely remove the Camera before disconnecting the USB, there is a potential for data Loss....on the computer side.

You may check if your Camera is set to cache using the following. These Cameras should be default "no caching"

1. right click "safely remove" ICON
2. "Safely Remove Hardware" Window Appers
3. select the JVC Camera on the "USB Mass Storage.." drop down tree
4. select [properties]
5. select "policies" tab
6a. select "optimize for quick removal" if you want to eliminate need to "Safely Remove" (BEST)
6b. Select "Optimize for Performance" (FASTER)

When i connect my can to pc i can't see any thing. just oppen the window blank


Connecting Everio to PC behaves like as you are connecting an external HDD to your PC. You can just transfer files from you Everio(SD Video folder for videos,DCIM for photos) files with extension .TOD or .MOD sometimes can't be open depending on you pc.Just rename those to .mpg(note; make a back up since this process is ereversible). If you did installed the application software provided, wait for a while after connecting, and it will pop up, ready to use. Note: some everio models will promt you what to do after connecting, just click the desired option. Good Luck

My JVC HDD GZ-MG365 will not record to the HD. It keeps coming up with an HDD error.


Try to format your HDD on the camera itself. Formatting is available in the menu. Formatting your HDD outside your unit is not recommended. Make sure to back up important files. Hope it Helps

How can I recover a file from a JVC Everio GZ-MG37U


First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or pictures with the camcorder(memory card) that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances.

Then take the memory card or hard drive out of your cam, and connect it to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Then install this software Wondershare Photo Recovery (recover videos and audio files too) on your computer. Then start to scan and see if your deleted files can be got back. Get the program from:

For Windows Version
For Mac version

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camcoder(card or disk) until you can recover your files safely!

Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!

Playback on PC has no sound


Are you playing the video back through the camcorders utility ? Sometimes by clicking on the file through windows explorer you will get the picture but no sound, this happens for the Sony camcorder but is fixed by running the playback through the motion picture browser application supplied with the camcorder.
