Question about JVC 20GB Everio GSeries HDD Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

No sound on transferred files

When I play my movies on my camcorder itself, I get full sound and picture, but when I attach the camcorder to my PC via the provided cord; and try to play the movie either directly from the camcorder's memory or copy them to a folder on the hard drive, all I am getting is the picture, no sound. Do I need to use a special program for it to work? Windows Media has no problem playing the picutre, but it comes back with no sound I can watch the pictures I have taken on the camcorder with sound but when I plug it into the TV or PC, I have no sound only picture

Re: No sound on transferred files

Hi cookie64,
You have discovered something not so good about this camcorder.
This particular camcorder records its video in .MOD files.
Most programs cant read .MOD files, so they pick up as much as they can, which in this case is the picture.
Other times you may pickup static, sometimes nothing at all.
For the solution however, there have been reports of the product that came with the camcorder doesnt work.
You'll need to get a program that reads the files, export them as .avi, .mpeg, etc. Then WMP will read them, sound and all.
So heres a link to a product that reads .MOD files.

To export them as a readable filetype:

  1. Open PowerDirector
  2. Import all of your .MOD files.
  3. Add all of your .MOD files to the timeline (or) If you want to create individual .AVI or .MPG files, add the files to the timeline individually.
  4. Once your timeline is setup how you’d like it, Click “Produce”
  5. Now select Save to File
  6. Finally Select .AVI or .MPG and select the directory that you’d like your file stored to.
Hope this helps you
have a good night and a great new year

I can play the DVD in the camcorder but when i connect it thru USB to a win 7 laptop, it shows as if the data in DVD is empty.

You need to Finalize recorded dvd within camcorder then connect it to computer via usb cable to transfer movie files.
Computer will see these files after dvd finalization.

Everio movie editing

First check sound settings on control panel, ensure volume is not at minimum and computer audio is not muted. Test playing a CD.

this is usually due to Media Player or whatever player you use on your pc, not having the right codecs to decompress sound from camera file.

Usually you sort it out upgrading media player, you can download update from links below.

  1. Windows Media Player 10
  2. Cumulative update for Windows Media Player 11 in Windows Vista

My Canon FS200 DVC isn't transferring files

Hi mate, I had same problem as you, took the cam into store and teh guy helped me out.

Make sure you get the recharger for the camcorder, then plug it into teh camcorder and also to the wall power when you are uploading the files. It can needs an extra power boost to get the files onto your computer.

- so plug in your camcorder to computer
- also plug in the battery recharger cord to the camcorder

Should work fine!!

To transfer tape data to computer

the way you can transfer your videos on your computer is by using USB cable and install the driver to your computer. You can upload your videos by saving it on ULEAD products. As far as i know you cant transfer videos from disc to your memory card unless it was been converted but you cant view or watch it on your camcorder itself only computer can play this because your camcorder is not able to play such converted files.
i will give you a step by step on your camcorder.

  • connect your camcorder using your USB cable to your computer and be sure it is ON
  • Install the cd driver camed with your camcorder. if you didnt prompt on looking for a driver then go to the add hardware on the control panel and follow the procedure there.
  • after the installation you should see the icon on the my computer labeled scanners and cameras and indicating the model of your camcorder.
  • Install Ulead Power Producer or any editing movie that you have like Windows movie maker, nero movier maker etc.. i prefer to use Ulead because its so easy to use
  • after uploading and editing your videos using ULEAD save it on any various types of videos that you like. you should see it after you want to save it.
  • burn your videos on NERO software
Hope you understand my procedures. Let me know if you have problems Good Luck!
thank you for using fixya

Downloading files

a software called Showbiz DVD2 was able to detect my camera and allow me to control the Camera options via the firewire cable to transfer the full video to my hard drive. You can also use a video program like Pinnacle or Roxio Media. Hope this helps you out.

Video playback is not smooth while playing via USB 1.1

USB1.1 port can generally handle transfer speeds approaching 5.5Mbps between PC and DVD Camcorder. Smooth playback of movies requires 5.5Mbps speeds or above. If the PC you are using has some compatibility issues with the USB driver software, the USB port may drop to speeds below 5.5Mbps causing short pauses during video playback. It is recommended to copy the movie file from the DVD Camcorder to the hard disc drive (HDD) on your PC, then playback the movie from the hard drive.
