GXMG77 Everio camcorder - issue with data transfer to PC

Everytime, even if I use the software to attempt move, I try to copy and/or move my files from the camcorder harddrive the connection is lost. It begins to transfer files, and indeed I have about 4 short clips that are available on my desktop. It almost appears as if the camcorder harddrive times out. I lose all folder structure to the camcorder harddrive in my explorer window and I have to disconnect/shut off and reconnect/turn on my camera, but it only lasts for about 3-5 minutes at best.
I am connecting to Windows XP w/Media Center and do have the external power cord plugged in so as to not attempt the transfer on battery power.
Any ideas?

Re: GXMG77 Everio camcorder - issue with data transfer to...

Yes even though it doesn't make sense, the only thing that was found when I brought mine in was that the Battery was corrupted. JVC even after having it in the shop and NUMEROUS calls to customer service. They could not reproduce this problem. Until they brought me to the back to the tech and realized the only thing different was that the battery pack was not in. For some reason the battery pack was corrupted and was causing this issue. I say if you have time on your warranty bring it back and buy a new camera.This will keep happening to the battery packs and JVC will want you to keep buying new batteries. As well as start charging 90 dollars an hour even in warranty to fix it. They kept trying to hold on to it longer and longer till the warranty just ran out.

You may need to install the driver/applications that came with the camcorder to get the recorded videos and pictures copied to your pc.

I have the above model camcorder ,the playback on my laptop with windows vista is terribly poor jumping all the time/distorted with jvc software provided or on windows media player it plays but audio is...

Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

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!

Cannot copy files Parameter Incorrect

most likely the issue is that your trying to copy files over 4gb to fat32 disks, and this causes the parameter incorrect -issue. Try formatting the drive your copying to ntfs, this can handle +4gb files.

SD card

you can try some data recovery software. You can see
recover files from sd card
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use sd card recovery software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

Everio gz-mg130 won't work with vista

It is easier to connect your camcorder through the included "PowerCinema NE for Everio". First (since you're running Vista), you have to download a patch. Here is the address:
Note: Only after you have installed PowerCinema NE for Everio can you install the patch. After you have installed the patch, just connect your MG130 to your computer through the included USB cable. Then the software should run automatically.
Hope this Helps
