Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG30US Camcorder
You don't have to have the software to upload to the computer, however you do have to have the software to view it on the computer. I have had this camera since it first came out and I had to purchase software to convert the video files to a format my computer could view. I have a Mac, and I use DropDV. It works fine and lets me edit in iMovie which comes with the Mac.
On the PC if you lose the software like I did after a computer crash, you will have to purchase the software separately.

That's one of the inherent disadvantages of using a direct-to-DVD Camcorder.
2 solutions that immediately come to mind are
1. Export the unedited video from imagemixer or whichever proprietary software you're currently using. This is done in the same manner you'd otherwise output video to digital files. Chances are, it'll be under File>Export. Output the video as a quicktime, MPEG, AVI, WMV, or other widely accessible video file system, and it should be easily opened in other software.
2. Use a DVD ripping program, such as Free DVD ripper from GoBuySoftware (http://www.gobuysoftware.com/Free-DVD-Ripper.html) for PC or Mac the Ripper for OS X (http://www.mactheripper.org/), both free, to export to an exchangeable format.
I hope this does the trick! If not, please let me know what specific gear you're using :)
