I installed the original quicktime plugin that came with the disk and i can't find the update so i have resorted to using Mpeg streamclip which reads the .tod file and then exporting from there in whatever format i have needed. It is long and tedious as the files i have are large - 10 mins is roughly 2 gig off the JVC
It isn't perfect but it works

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
If you are using a Mac, you should also use the firewire cable (not a USB). Using the Mac program that comes pre-installed on the mac, iMovie, you can then import the movie and save it using imovie. Then you can also, edit and clip and merge and add all kind of special effects, titles and more.
Hope this helps.

It happens because you didn't install the quicktime plugin. once the quicktime is installed it will show the preview of the video so you can make your selection.
download the quicktime plugin:
if not download the VLC player. it will nearly play every format. Choose your .tod file and play it on vlc.
hope its helps :) by the way i got the same camera :P
Hey Brett, unfortunately FCP and iMovie are looking for a device over Firewire or a capture card (whichever you have set up). The driver off of the disk is actually quite useless under any Mac Os 10. Video editing programs unless older or PC based rarely use USB for video transfer hence why none of the apps are locating the camera. Unfortunately you'll have to transfer the files via USB as data and use a program like MPEGStreamclip to transcode them to a file format those programs will understand. JVC has released updated software but it seems to do nothing at all. I hope this helps.
P.S. you may need the MPEG 2 Codec to do the conversions wether you're using MPEGStreamclip or another application.
