    I am using a red, white, and yellow tipped cable that goes directly into the sony dvdirect, and the other end is in the JVC camera.

    I also was told by the guys at best buy to purchase the dynex mini memory card reader/writer and use the wire that comes with it, when I tried it the dvdirect reads "no imput signal" thanks so much for your help

  • buthie17 Jul 01, 2008

    the camcorder is actually a jvc everio G MG21U and the DVdirect recorder is a sony VRD-MC3. as for the ports i'm not really sure what you call them. the camera has an AV port, right next to that is a port that looks like a cactus, thx

  • buthie17 Jul 01, 2008

    yes, the dv burner and the jvc camera have a usb port

  • buthie17 Jul 01, 2008

    The only way that its supposed to work is by connecting the DV cable to each system. Your Hard Drive camcorder will play it back while your DV recorder records the tape. It will also synchronize it as well.

    What is the model number of your Sony camcorder?

    It could be that the DV port on the Sony is output only. The owners manual should give us the answer.

    There is another option too if this doesn't work.

    Does your Sony DV have a mic input jack?

    The cactus thing is usb. Do both cameras have a usb port?

    If the DV Camcorder doesn't have a mic input into it, chances are it will only record the video with no sound. That way you know the audio input is working. The audio connections you are using the camera now are for output only.

    I don't know if both USB ports can be used to two way communication. If they can be, then it will work but if the DV camcorder is USB output only, then it won't work.

    I won't know the answer unitl I look at the manuals this afternoon.

    You can use a program like Pinnacle Studio. Once you plug your camera in Studio will load up and capture your video to hard drive. All you have to do add a menu into the timeline. Drag and drop the video to the time line and burn to DVD.

I have the above model camcorder ,the playback on my laptop with windows vista is terribly poor jumping all the time/distorted with jvc software provided or on windows media player it plays but audio is...

Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.

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!

You can possibly search for the drivers to the hardware. You can search for the cd that came with the hardware or you can go to radioshack and ask a computer geek there they are always willing to assist you.

Transferring video from JVC to computer

Does the Camcorder show as a new drive in your 'My Computer' list of drives? Ie C drive D drive and possibly a weirdly named one is the one you're after. You should be able to find the videos in the folders contained on that new drive. Trouble finding it? Open mycomputer with it unplugged, then plug in camera like you're going to download stills, and watch for a new drive to appear. You will have to look through out the folders until you find the videos :o) Hope this helps you,
