    thanks for the assistance. I ended up taking the ups cord out and trying another port. It fixed it. Not sure why as the original ups port didnt work as it usually works.I am sure it used to work with my camcorder.

    I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG30u and when I try to copy the files from my camera to my computer, I get the following error: "Cannot copy (filename): The parameter is incorrect" I read Andrew28's response, but I don't know what a UPS port or cord is. Is he referring to a USB port or cord???

Hi my pc operating system is windows 7 and it is not reconising my jvc everio can anyone help


Disconnect the cable from Camera to PC and re-connect.
It should show message as new hardware found. Continue with the wizard. Or you can choose the option - Find the drivers online and wait for driver installation to complete.

You will get a message as " Device successfully connected " on bottom right corner of your PC screen.
Click on Start button
Click on Computer

In the new window you will find a new Drive E: or F: Which is your Camcorder data folder. Open it and copy the contents to your PC. ( this is the only way you can access your Camcorder details on Win 7 )

Hi, did you try downloading your videos through the included software? It should work best using the included PowerCinema NE for Everio. If you are using windows Vista, then you need to download a patch. Here is the link:
Make sure you have PowerCinema NE for Everio installed before applying the patch. After this, follow a few simple steps. Turn off your camcorder. Connect the USB cable to the computer then to the camcorder. Then, turn it on. The software should load automatically, and using that you should be able to download the files. You might need administrator rights for this.

Hope this helps,
