Question about Video Cameras
We have recently purchased an ASUS laptop and a JVC GZ-MG135AA Digital Camcorder. When I connect the two via USB, the laptop recognises the camera after I select "connect to device" on the camcorder. The problem arises after the data has downloaded from the camcorder to the laptop. When I go to play any of the movies, Windows Media Player responds with an message saying that it can't recognise the file format. The file format that the movies are in is .MOD. I go to web help and don't really make much progress after that as I am unable to find a reference to .MOD files. I myself have never actually heard of this particular file format. The issue I believe is the fact that we have Windows Vista Professional. I have downloaded the videos successfully (they download as .MPEG) onto my family's PC at home which has Windows XP. All I can think is that for some reason the JVC camcorder is not compatible to Windows Vista and the file format doesn't not come across in a format recognisable by Windows Media Player. Is there a program that can be downloaded so that Windows Media Player can recognise a .MOD file? Or is there some way of changing the file format from .MOD after it's downloaded? Some guidance/help would be greatly appreciated as this has been a most frustrating experience (of which I have tried many times over!). Many thanks, Sarah Bassett
These is a great discussion on the .mod file format at http://dotwhat.net/mod/2483/

How to convert .MOD file to mpg, avi, wmv and others?
If you got a JVC camcorder, or Panasonic camcorder or Canon MOD camcorder, you would have probably encountered such issue--- what to do with the MOD/TOD files----the God forsaken video format? And you want to convert the recorded .MOD file type to mpeg, avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv or whatever more common, so that you can put them on Youtube, Myspace, Google video and Hulu later on to share the camcorder video with your friends or more people? And there is another headache thing is that most major video editing suites seem to unwillingly accept the MOD/TOD format. Even windows video maker, I have to say it's too complicated to use
Someone successfully made it simply by changing the extension from .mod to mpg, but for most people, they just failed only to find there is no audio after the extension is changed, or the changed one doesn’t allow you to import these files into Windows movie maker, not to mention upload some video to Youtube.com or Facebook.
any alternativs? There is a very simple program that convert .mod NOT ONLY to mpg but many others like avi, mkv, flv, mp4, wmv, rm, rmvd, mov, dv, mg2 and swf. MOD converter is the one shoot all the trouble. This excellent mod conversion tool is not just a converter but also a video editing tool.
