Cannot edit the video files on PC or Mac

I finalized the disk and tried to edit the clips with Sonic, but I am getting and run time error with video titles. Then I burned the small disk on to a regular DVD so I could try it in the Mac. The movie clips will play, but there is no way to edit them in imovie This is really frustrating. I am trying to do a project for my son and need to edit these clips!

I have resolved this problem using nero recode to convert "sony"-DVD in mpeg4 files. So it work correctly with imovie, but you always need a PC to convert file, and the quality is worst that the quality of the original DVD...and it take you a lot of time

Sony and mac do not play nice together! the video was recorded in mpeg 2 and mac likes to see a different file format-sony will work with 08 versions of imovie-try to use moviemaker-free in your menus- in Vista if possible-try to stream disc from camcorder to computer using usb on camcorder-stick w/windows if at all possible-use a pinnicale converter box to convert av output from camcorder to usb-about 50-100.00.

Canon Vixia HF 20 how do you get the files onto the mac

This camera stores the video using a unique method, and does not allow you to simply drag and drop the video files - you also can not easily find the camera and play the video real time to transfer it ...
You need a compatible software program, meaning the software needs to be compatible with the camera ... there are many available ... but if you are looking to buy software check to see if it is compatible with your camera before purchasing ... I wonder, what software will you be using to edit the video?
For example, you can use Final Cut Express. It will find the camera as long as the camera is connected via USB and there is power applied to the camera ... once connected, look at the camera LCD screen and select "Computer" for the connection ... then, in Final Cut Express, select Log and Transfer (File menu), and you will get a new window. You camera should be recognized and you can select the video takes that you want to transfer and then hit "add selection to queue" and the transfer will begin.
You will first want to check in Final Cut Express where the transfers will end up on the computer, and pick a suitable location with plenty of hard drive space (Final Cut Express menu / System Settings / Scratch Disks) so you can find them if you want to at some point in the future.

Assuming you will be editing in Final Cut Express, you won't actually need to find them, but its important to select a scratch disk location that has plenty of hard drive space, and if you want to copy one of the clips to use it directly to just upload to YouTube or something like that, you'll know where they are (they will be .mov files, and can play all by themselves using Quicktime or any similar program)

As always, refer to the manual if you run into any problems ...
Hope this helps!

I can't download my videos from my JVC GZ-HD7U into my PC using Magix Edit Pro.

Hi there,
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

Error C:13:02 - Can't recognize any disks

Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc

When you format the disk before recording, make sure you format in VIDEO MODE. Once you have recorded, finalize disk. After you place the disk into your computer, open up the folder of the disk. You should see your clips with the extension .VOB;
right click to copy the clip to your desktop. Right-click on the copied file and rename the VOB extension to MPEG. It will warn you that the file might become unusable, but it works everytime. VOB files are Mpeg files. Now you can import into any editing software. Goodluck.
