Broken video management file/ recording failure

After approximately 10 seconds of recording, a recording failure message appears on the viewer. Recording stops, then the message video management file is broken appears on the viewer. It is preceded by To record/playback video, recovery is required. Recover? Yes or No. At this point, I will hit the yes key. The camera then says recovery complete upon which I will hit the okay key. However, after continuing to record for another 10 seconds, the same message reoccurs.

Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.

Do not be that worried, in this case you still have chance to get back those video chips and you may need video recovery software to help, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.

Video Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Video Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Tips:
Take the memory card or stick out and connect to your computer via a card reader. Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the JVC memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.

JVC G-z-mg365bu video management file is broken to record/playback video. recovery is required recovery


For broken files, everio will prompt you to recover once switched on. If you mean deleted by accident, you can use file recovery software like Final Data Enterprise and a lot more. Mostly can be recovered, sometimes 80% or 90% of your total recording. Good Luck

File failed message


The same thing happens to me when I try to record thru the "A/V in jack". It appears (my first thought) that the camera is trying to record to the internal drive and it runs out of memory really quick. But then, when I play it back, (the small 15 seconds or so) the audio and video are not sync'd. Most of the time at least. Very inconsistent. It also locked up and froze for me too. I had to remove the battery to reset it. Once or twice it recorded normal, (once when I reset the default settings and another time just out of the blue) - I thought I had it solved but it went back to "File Failed" after about 17-20 seconds of recording on the next record session.

I have the thing packed up ready to take back, but am looking for a solution so I can keep it..

Video management problem


sounds like you need to "recover" the hard drive.

Only other option you can try is to reset the camera.
