Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Camcorder
Hi my screen says video management file is broken reset required. I pressed the button and an hour glass rotates and it says reset complete but then it keeps on doing this and will not let me record. I can view through the screen but am unable to record it simply ignores any further commands. I can take still images but no video.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Ok i had the same problem, this is what i did I hooked up my camera to my pc via usb and wenyt into the cameras harddrive itself and noticed that one floder that i would click on said that it was corrupted that floders name is EXTMOV i made a new folder on my desktop named EXTMOV and remaned the Folder on the camera EXTMOV1 then dragged the new EXTMOV folder on the camera I got the same message that the video management file needed to be fixed went through the process and now the camera works!
I hope this helps...

Here's is how I solved this issue, I used a Louisville Slugger in my backyard and destroyed this piece of Sh_t. Destroying It felt great after watching this recorder malfunction during my daughter's graduation. JVC should be ashamed of themselves with this issue. I will buy a good and reliable product next time.

Just had the same problem - couldn't access any of my footage. I went through the menu screen and scrolled down to "Clean HDD". It took a little while, but everything's working again. Am currently downloading all footage.

Gary - not an answer - but mine just started doing the same thing. It was working perfectly fine and one day I turned it on and this message pops up. I've tried everything to reset or "fix" the problem, but it just keeps giving me the same message. This is happening in the video mode and when I press the button to review videos. I'm getting on the phone with JVC today to try and figure this out...hopefully it won't result in having to send the camera anywhere. I'll report back if I get any useable advice.

Actually the problem is which button you use when responding to the message. You must use the little joy stick on the flip out LCD screen. When it says the Video Management file is Broken... Message push in on the little joy stick and that will fix the broken file and all will be well with the world again...

Also when adding on to what Lenny said, you should always eject your camcorder from start>my computer>everio hard disk , instead of just pulling the plug from the computer
