Question about JVC Cameras

2 Answers

JVC Hard Disk Camcorder (Everio) GZ-MG155U, after break in file management, came out of it showing no recorded material (I had 6 hours of material recorded on it at the time) and though the on-screen read-out claims the disk is empty (i.e. 7 hrs of ultra-fine record time available), trying to record results in error message "recording failure." Tried "CLEAN-UP" command without success; am reluctant to reformat drive until I can find out if my 6 hours of recorded material might be recoverable. PLEASE ADVISE as to whether you think I have any hope of recovering the 6 hours of recorded material.

Hi,

To my knowledge, the he JVC has a docking station which allows transfer via USB or Firewire to your PC, have you tried using that? The JVC will appear as another drive (External Storage Device) in your "My Computer" and therefore PC utilities to check for errors, recovery and even formatted could be used/performed. Alternately, you can try removing the harddrive and connect it to an external USB adapter to the PC and same will also hold true except the camera is no longer p[art of the equation.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try to connect first the Camera to your computer and check if there's any file inside it and see if you will be able to find that recording if not you can try to download a datarecovery software on the internet or just take this Camera to a data recovery center near you and let them do the recovery of the recording....

Hope that helps........

Do i need a memory card to record..


No you do not need a memory card to record. The JVC Everio GZ-MG130 is a hard disk drive camcorder with a built-in 30 gigabyte hard drive to record to. You can, however, use an SD memory card if you want to add additional space to save your videos and pictures to.
