I have recorded some material on my camera, but now I have problems downloading the information on my Mac. If I do it through a play list in tom my final cut pro. It cut 7.05 sec. of every shoot. And if I make a copy through the usb cable I can not reproduce the files, even though I have downloaded the cd included with the camera. Every time I try to open the file come, a pop up come up saying "The movie contains an incorrect duration."
It would be great if you could help me out.
I had the same problem, finally figured it out. If you have Quicktime 7.4.5, you need to download the current Quicktime plug in patch from Everio, it came with an older version of QT on the CD. (I have a Mac OSX 10.5.3, not sure if the same applies for a PC) Reference links: http://www2.cli.co.jp/products/ne/update_qtc_for_gzhd7/qtc3e_update.htm http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=7292857

It happens because you didn't install the quicktime plugin. once the quicktime is installed it will show the preview of the video so you can make your selection.
download the quicktime plugin:
if not download the VLC player. it will nearly play every format. Choose your .tod file and play it on vlc.
hope its helps :) by the way i got the same camera :P
You CAN NOT use the Firewire to capture your footage like DV or HDV camcorders. I too Have a macbook pro and use FCPS2 to edit my footage. If you want to get the footage off of the HD7u, you'll have to connect via USB2.0 and download the .TOD files and use a program to convert them. I use MPEGStreamclip. It will work with the .TOD files and convert them to a format that iMovie or FInal Cut will understand. If this is not for professional work you'll probably be fine converting the footage to the HDV standard or DV standard and not have to render in FCP to edit the footage.
Caution... MPEG2 codec may be needed. If you have FCP or have Quicktime pro, you probably already have it other wise you can purchase it from apple for $29.99 or if you try real hard (not to hard) you can probably find it on a torrent for free.
I hope this helps your situation
There currently are no updates for the camcorder, they discontinued the camcorder shortly after it hit stores.. seemed to have alot of issues.
To the other user with the similar issues. The camcorder isn't the same as a DV camcorder and you may not be able to capture live. My suggestion would be to mount the camera using the USB cable and copying the video files from the camcorders internal hard drive to your desired location.
You may need an application to convert the videos, I suggest MpegStream Clip. They have a version for PC and Mac.
