Question about JVC Cameras

1 Answer

I have a jvc everio gz-mg157u hdd 30g camcorder/camera. My promlem is that the videos that are stored in the camera I can not find. When I go into my videos, it says that there are no videos stored but there is some video space on the hard drive that is used up. Also, when I press the record button, it records for about one second if even, and then it goes right back to the pause icon and records nothing. Can you help me out? This is a very expensive camera and I really need it to work right. THANK YOU!!

    I have not transferred any videos out of the camera yet. I can not find them in the area that they are supposed to be stored in. It keeps telling me that there are no videos stored here, but then again there is some hdd space that has been used. But just a couple minutes after I posted my last post, the camera doesnt even work now. Once I turn on the camcorder, none of the buttons work anymore. Can this also be a poor battery malfunction, b/c it is still the regular battery that came w/ it when I bought it. I hope the unit is not breaking down on me. Please get back to me with your best solutions. THANK YOU!

    Okay. Can I just take it into any electronics place? Because I bought the camera back in Georgia, and now I live in Wisconsin.

    OK. I will give both those solutions a try. THANK YOU! One last question though. Would I lose all my data in the camcorder after the repair work?

    How are you transferring your videos out of the camera?



    When your transferring them are you deleting them off the camcorder?

You should take it in to have someone look at it. It sounds likes its more than just the hard drive.

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


Share: How to import .tod files from JVC Everio HDD Camcorder to iMovie?

Requirements: iMovie (Part of the iLife 08 package)

Step 1: Connect the Everio to the Mac (Via USB)
Make sure you are powering the Everio from the mains before connecting your JVC Everio Camcorder.

Step 2: Playback on PC
Select “Playback on PC” on the Everio, once connected you will see the Everio HDD symbol appear on the desktop. The video files on the Everio are stored in the SD Folder/PRG***/MOV***.MOD.

Step 3: Open iMovie
Once you open iMovie, you will see that it recognizes the Everio straight away and will attempt to import your video.

You are now ready to use iMovie to edit your video files.

If need change .tod files to common video formats like mov, mp4, m4v, mpg, mpeg, dv, flv, avi, wmv, 3gp, mkv, mp3, aac, wma, m4a, etc. Mod Tod Video Converter for Mac is a good choice. The program can also convert mod tod to ipod, mod tod to iphone, tod to apple tv, tod to blackberry and more devices!

My JVC Everio GZ-MG130U Camcorder says "HDD Error"


You need a cable and some video capturing software. If you have a DV port you need a firewire cable. Pinnacle Studio makes a good program that is reasonably priced, easy to use, and makes professional videos.
