Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG30 Camcorder

1 Answer

I have just backed up my movies from my JVC Everio, saving them as a TOD File (.TOD) which my PC cannot read. How do I change the settings or formats to something I can read on my PC. I have downloaded all of the software that came with the camera namely Cyber BD Solution and the picture navigation program. I am using a HP TouchSmart vista 64-bit computer

Tod file converter JVC-GZ-HD7U Camcorder
The solution is so easy
Tod file conversion, download the ulead video studio 11.5 with the update other wise he will not work properly.http://www.ulead.co.uk/vs/features.htm
Run the program(ulead) go to Edit and on the right hand side of the screen you see icon of a folder open that and import your file (tod) when it's imported put it on the time line as well.
Now to converter to any kind of format you wish is very easy.
Open share icon right on the top next to audio icon and go to any format you wish to create.
For me I use adobe premier pro I need 720X576 I do this method.
I open in share folder the ---create video file-after I have lot of choose I select ---DV------after Pal (4:3) and I give name and destination (et voila)all done.
Note:
Please don’t use DV----Pal (16:9) it will stretch the footage to much
When you import the file tod strait from your JVC will help to keep the same quality of your converted file.
Enjoy

also for your reference: There are multiple ways to upload files but a very easy way to do it is the following. It may seem tedious but once you learn it, it is basically a snap:

-Turn on pc
-Connect Everio to pc with USB cable
-Turn on Everio
-See 2 choices on Everio screen, click 'Playback on PC'
-Close any programs that will open automatically on your pc (I think PowerCinema, another program that comes with the Everio, opens but close this)
-On pc open Power Director (PD) software that came with Everio
-In PD, Click on the folder button (turns yellow on mouse over) in upper left corner of screen directly under 'Capture' button.
-See dropdown menu click 'open media folder'
-Look for drive that says EVERIO_HDD (KI have just backed up my movies from my JVC - smile.gif and open it
-I guess it will depend on what you are doing and what you are uploading (either video or stills, file format, etc may be in various folders your Everio instruction manual can help you with this) but you can start by trying SD_VIDEO then PRG001 for vids and click 'OK' and that should get you going
-Allow computer time to convert files and then you will see your files populate in the media viewer

From here you can use PowerDirector to edit video. However, if you would like to edit video in another program such as Premiere do the following to store them in a folder in Windows:

-In PD drag any files you want to transfer to the timeline then click the 'Produce' button at top of PD screen
-A produce window opens with a number of options
-To specify the folder you want to send the files to, see the button 'Output to' near lower left of window
-On the right see 'Step 1' and 4 boxes, click the 'Create a File' box and click the green arrow below
-Step 2 opens and choose file type, you can start with DV-AVI (select .avi) and click green arrow
-Step 3 opens and click the green check mark at bottom
-Allow the computer time to produce the movie and click the green check mark again after it is done.
-Open the folder you have saved your files to see the files
-Then open your video editing software such as Premiere and import the files

Please do rate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks

I recently purchased a JVC HD everio GZ-HD300, how


This camera is like an external drive when connected to PC. The videos you recorded is just like a normal digital file. Install the software provided so that you can transfer it into other format you need like mpeg1,mpeg2 etc. or you can just rename the file after copying to pc. Ex. MOV000A.TOD, change it to MOV000A.mpg, make sure to have back up, this process is e reversible. Drag the file anywhere you need it. Hope it helps

I have a jvc everio and the camcorder is in mod extension


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. From now on, with the MOD converter . you can enjoy your mod video on many media player, even on portable devices like blackberry, Gphone, PSP, Creative Zen,etc.
Things will be easier if you take a moment to finish reading the Step by Step on how to convert .mod to mpg, avi, wmv and others

Step by Step

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


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!

Continuous playback of files


me also, ok lets say that i already converted the tod files using powerdierctor express, i have converted already to mpeg, mpg. i have noticed that when i already starts editing my mpg clips, its looks like the video output is not good.

i found a secret or solution, about tod files, powerdirector5 express can't read it or open it right. lol, so funny, JVC budled this cyberlink softwares that can't relly help so much for editing movies, ok, copy first your movie from your hd7 using powercinema to your pc (TOD files). then use nero 9, for editing and fixing your movie it can read the tod files, and can play smoothly, not like powerexpress even do i have converted already the tod files to mpg, not smooth and the video output was not good,

ok thats what i found, the problem is im lacking transitions at nero, wew.

Transfering from jvc-hd7 to computer


You should be getting .tod files, not .mov files. The resulting files are of the type MOVxxx.tod, where xxx is a hexidecimal number. You then convert the .tod files (for PC's only) to .mpg files with the Cyberlink PowerDirector software that came with your camera (on the CD).

Hope this helps.

JVC CAMCORDER GZ-HD7U


You CAN NOT use the Firewire to capture your footage like DV or HDV camcorders. I too Have a macbook pro and use FCPS2 to edit my footage. If you want to get the footage off of the HD7u, you'll have to connect via USB2.0 and download the .TOD files and use a program to convert them. I use MPEGStreamclip. It will work with the .TOD files and convert them to a format that iMovie or FInal Cut will understand. If this is not for professional work you'll probably be fine converting the footage to the HDV standard or DV standard and not have to render in FCP to edit the footage. 
Caution... MPEG2 codec may be needed. If you have FCP or have Quicktime pro, you probably already have it other wise you can purchase it from apple for $29.99 or if you try real hard (not to hard) you can probably find it on a torrent for free.
I hope this helps your situation
