Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Most digital cameras (NOT ALL but the exceptions are sold as such)
can't be connected to the computer, when they are switched on.
Most digital camera's will shut down, when connected to the USB card. Your Canon G10 is no exception. Most of the time when connecting the USB cable the camera changes in an external memory drive for the computer. Some camera's can be charged via the USB cable. Even when connected to a computer.
Even when I want to connect my DSLR to a computer, to do life view on my computer screen, I have to install special (payed) software, to let it work.
Without the software running, the same DSLR always shuts down and only will download pictures when another program is started.

You should have a cable that goes from your ipod to a USB connection. Then you just plug the USB connection into your computer, then the other end into your IPOD

Computer wont register camera


Check with JVC and your manual to ensure that this camera can be used as a still camera when connected to the PC. I think even some high end cameras do not have this functionality.
You don't say which version of Windows you are running.

I would check with JVC's web site or on your driver disc to see that there are WDM / TWAIN drivers to allow your GZ-MG130 to be seen as an imaging device in Windows.
