Re: can not capture video on my pc

I get the same thing, but if you double click on the mod file, it will play. The "Mass Storage Device" is always on when the Everio is connected to the computer.

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

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!

When you download your video files onto your pc and go to find them in the prg files you notice two kinds of files. The big ones with extension .mod are the video files. I've had success changing the file extension to .mpg and then importing it to your other editing software programs. Hope this helps.
