I have a JVC GZ - HD7U and I would like to disable the Auto-Shut

I would like to disable the Auto-Shutdown mode on my JVC GZ HD7U it is very annoying. I know JVC put this in to "save" the hard Drive from overheating, but they also didn't allow for the wireless remote to "wake" the camera when it does this hard shut-down, its very frustrating, great camera poor features.

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

NOTES
• When the USB cable is connected, turning on or off the camera causes malfunctions of the PC.

• Connect the camera directly to the PC, not through the hub.

• Do not use an extension USB cable.

• Saving the wrong kinds of files in a recording medium or deleting files or folders from a recording medium can cause problems with the operation of the camera. When it is necessary to delete a file from a recording medium, delete it through the camera. Also, do not move or rename folders and files in the medium on PC.

• Never disconnect the USB cable while the access/charge lamp on the camera lights or blinks.


1 Create a folder to back up files into.

5 Select the folder that you want to back up, and drag & drop it into the folder you created in step 1.

Folder that contains video files. If you want to back up fi les individually, open this folder, and drag & drop folders such as [PRG001] one by one.
DCIM:
Folder that contains still image fi les. If you want to back up fi les individually, open this folder, and drag & drop files such as [PIC_0001.JPG] one by one.

When you have finished operation

Always follow the procedures below when disconnecting the camera, or turning off the camera/computer power.

3) Select [USB Mass Storage Device] or
[USB Disk], and then click [Stop].

No disc for my JVC Everio GZ-HD7U


You don't need the disc. Buy Corel's latest videostudio x2 for editing. To extract the video files from camera just plug into computer with USB cable and search the camera for files.

Remote not working


If you have a manual there usually is a master reset for your camera. Otherwise a menu item changed. Lastly I hope it hasn't failed on you.
