Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Camcorder
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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)
