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.

Its easy, guys! :)

If you make videoedition on Windows-based workstation.
1) Download tod-files in PC.
2) Rename files from ex. mov012.tod to mov012.m2ts.
3) Import its in adobe premiere.

PS: Tested in Premiere CS3 & 4.

If you edit your video in MacOSX, then just install JVC codec in system! :)

Good luck!

Sony Vegas support .TOD files natively.

Also I tried changing extension from .tod to .mpeg it worked just fine but did not spend too much time on it.

4 SDHC 8GB Card Error that"this card cannot be used to record or edit" What can I do? Thanks!


The message is clear. You cannot use the card.
You can check the manufacturer's website to see if there a new firmware. If there, is update the firmware (anyway) and hope it will support the card format. If there is no new firmware, read the manual for the type of cards and capacities supported and buy compatible cards. The old card can be returned to the store, sold to someone, or saved for future devices.

I have a JVC Everio GZ-mg20. It plays back fine, but in record mode the picture is black. It records audio, but video is black - as if the lens cover is on, but it's not. Does this just require a firmware...


I'm afraid that this is a fault. Your ccd, the image sensor, is either not working or has become disconnected. Everything else seems to be working, but the camera is blind.

Hopefully you can get this fixed under warranty. Otherwise it may be too expensive to be worthwhile.

I bought my camera at American Electronics. I bought a 4 year extended warranty. My camera broke, I was wondering if I returned it if I would get the same camera back or a different one. I own a JVC...


It's JVC's choice whether to repair or replace the camera.
Possibly, for faster "turn-around", they will send you a replacement,
and _then_ "refurbish" the camera, and then try to sell it as a "refurbished" unit.

For you, that means that any recordings currently on the camera probably will be "lost",
because you'll get an "empty" 60 GB HDD inside the new camera.

Possibly, American Electronics can "archive" your recordings, before you send the camera away, and then "restore" your recordings onto the new HDD ????

No disc for my JVC Everio GZ-HD7U


You don't need the disc. Buy Corel's latest videostudio x2 for editing. To extract the video files from camera just plug into computer with USB cable and search the camera for files.

Remote not working


If you have a manual there usually is a master reset for your camera. Otherwise a menu item changed. Lastly I hope it hasn't failed on you.

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
