Question about JVC Everio GZ-MC100 Memory Card Camcorder

Open Question

Cannot film movies/take pics, but can record sound (corrupted folders?)

My camera (GZ-MC100) stopped partially working. I was able to take pictures and view them but not film/view movies. When I tried to film st. it said st. like video management was corrupted. When I tried to restore it hanged up and the green light started flashing on the camera. I pulled out the batery, but same problem repeated many times. I run a chkdsk on disk and it found some corrupted files, so I said it to fix it, but it changed DCIM folder to a file. Now I am not able to take picture nor film anything. I can see in view mode, that there isn't any movie, but can see boxes for pictures. However when I switch to camera mode, there aren't even boxes for the pictures which looks st. was deleted on the disk (also say No image files). If I switch to a mode where I should take a pictures/film movie, there is sign "please wait" ,the raining effect appears on the display and the green lights start flashing (1 together with 3rd and 2nd). I tried to hold Mode & Menu buttons for 5 secs. but doesn't reset anything, and all 3 lights will start flashing after a while. However still can record/playback sound. Now the structure of the folder is as follow: .Trashes DCIM (empty) DCVC (empty) |--101JVCMC (empty) EXTMOV FOUND.000 SD_VIDEO |--MGRINFO--| | |--MGR_DATA | |--PRG_MGR |--PRG001--| | |--PRG001.PGI .DS_Store .DS_Store Any advice strongly appreciated.

SOURCE: Broken video management file/ recording failure

Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.

SOURCE: screen says video management file is broken

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.

SOURCE: Video Playback on a Everio GZ-MG57U

Sounds like you just need to upgrade your codecs. I use media player classic or VLC media player so I've never had these "not" play. Also another thing you will run into is the widescreen not showing properly when it does work. You have to convert the video to proper divx format with Xillisoft video converter in order for it to appear in 16:9 in all players. Makes the files 1/10 of the size too with little quality loss. Make sure you get the newest divx and xvid codecs, or a media player codec pack (easily found in google).

Camera temp is too low keep camera power on pls. wait


Stop making your movies in the freezer my friend, try going in doors, Hard Drive cameras are only good for proper temp filming, that is why most proper cameramen still stick to 8mm tapes.

Error with CF card


did you delete all card files on your pc?
if so, camera will not function properly. Try formating the cf card on your computer and format it again inside JVC camera,
try inserting a normal cf card(should work) in order to find if you have a faulty cf card
hope it helps

Download cd's for jvc gz-mc100


this camera doesn't come with software to transfer videos. Just plug your camera (or insert the cf card, on a card reader) and copy your videos to your pc. you can use the image import feature on windows to do the job (but don't delete the videos with your pc. If you do the camera will state a error)

hope it helps
