Check with JVC and your manual to ensure that this camera can be used as a still camera when connected to the PC. I think even some high end cameras do not have this functionality.
You don't say which version of Windows you are running.

I would check with JVC's web site or on your driver disc to see that there are WDM / TWAIN drivers to allow your GZ-MG130 to be seen as an imaging device in Windows.

I have a RCA small Wonder camera. For some reason the program comes up, but it says it cannot show the videos


For some reason, now the program where I view my videos on my computer is now working perfectly. I did restart the computer. So I do not know what was wrong. But that is the way a computer program is. It works one day, dies the next and then comes to life again. I love it. Thanks for your help.

How do I transfer a recorded tape to my computer


You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't

For the first user, The screen will cut off on the camera when you plug it into your computer. That is the way it's supposed to work. Make sure your camera is set to webcam. That will be under video resolution in your tools and settings screen. Looking at your camera, it will (or should) be the bottom left button. The camera won't work properly on your computer in Hi Def and that's probably why Yahoo won't recognize it. The resolution is just way too much for it to handle. Hope this helps some.

For the second one, did you install your driver software? Good, had to ask, don't cuss me! (HaHa) Okay, plug in your camera, open the little viewscreen on your camera (this MUST be open or you'll only charge your camera, go to my computer, then to whichever drive your camera is hooked to. It's removable media "L" on my computer, but yours may be different. Click (or double click) on that. You should see an icon that says DCIM, double click. Click on 100 media. Your files should come up. Hope this helps.
