PowerProducer 2 Gold NE

We have a JVC GZ-MG30AA camera. When using PowerProducer 2 Gold NE to produce and burn our clips we have filmed onto DVD, the dvd spits out and a error message says 'Catastrophic Failure'.
It has in the past burned DVDs just fine and so I'm not sure why its all of a sudden not going it!

can you help?

I think you may be able to use 3rd party software like "ConvertXtoDVD" the camera records in type of .mpg format & this can be used by many programs including Media Player as long as ya have the right "CODEC" to play and manipulate them. So identify the CODEC, what type of .mpg etc, the camera records in and get , Down Load, that one for Media Player. You may be able to use Windows Movie maker too, but any of the good movie programs would do. I have enclosed some helpful links to further help..

SOURCE: JVC Everio movie producer software

heres the link to download the POWER PRODUCER

you should have a torrent downloader for this. try to use utorrent to be able to download the whole file on the powerproducer

install the utorrent on your pc. open the file that youve download from the link that ive provide to you. it should be downloading after you open it with utorrent. wait until it 100% and after that you should have the software of your camcorder. that is POWER PRODUCER. hope that helps!

SOURCE: Can't get rid of the screen images for video camera on playback

If it's like my Canon MVX25i date and time marking then go to the menu, select display setup (or whatever it's called on your camera) somewhere there should be a dialogue which allows you to switch the pesky thing off. I have never used date or time, a very amateurish concept in the first place.

I have a JVC Everio Video Camera, but i can not get the video files to burn to a dvd disc. i have downloaded them onto my computer- and created a dvd, but the files just will not burn onto a disc!! what am...

The problem's not what they are saved as, it's your burning software needs to transcopr them into mpeg-2 format so that they burn properly.
There are several dvd burning software programs out there...some very pricy and some are free.
For pricy type I would go with nero 10
For free, I reccomend Free DVD Creater
Whatever program you go with, it must be one that will change the format from whatever it is, to mpeg-2.

I hope this helps.

I made a video from my JVC GZ-MG130 on Windows Media DVD Maker. When I try to burn to disc it fails after 99%. I tried new disc that should run at 16X but it failed again. Also, tried to run at slower...

Have you tried Nero? I want you to use the Power Cinema NE(Editor) its include in this package. Open the video file in the editor(Copy/Edit) Advance feature, you can do some editing if you wish and Produce. It will ask you what format will be the outcome(DVD Mpeg2). Once finished, this file is ready for burning. Burn it in Nero or Roxio as Data file since its already a DVD file. Hope it helps

Unable to burn vidio onto DVD_error code FF037303

hey i have also had the same problem, but mine was as simple as dodgy dvd's. i bought about 25 in bulk and that same code ff037303 came up with about 10 of them. even when i tried to create dvd in another program it got to 98% then stopped. go and buy new dvds and try again. great camcorder though.
