    Thanks for the quick reply. I have done as you suggested and found in SD-VIDEO 2 x files named: PRG001 & PRG002. In the PRG001 there is: MOV00A / MOV00A.MOI / MOV00B / MOV00B.MOI etc etc. up to MOV064.M01. The last in the list is different PRG001.PGI
    The second PRG002 is similar, the last file named PRG002.PGI

    What do I need to do now?

    Thanks, shiner.

    Hi, thanks again for the clear explanation. I will give it a go tonight. I am guessing but I suppose I need to re-name all the files with 'proper names'.
    I will report on my progress tomorrow.
    Really appreciate the help.

    Hi, I am back. Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
    I have now managed to complete the production of a movie on my HDD camcorder ands burn to a disc.
    The disc plays perfectly on my Fujitsu laptop, but when I try to play it on my Toshiba DVD player conected to the TV it comes up as 'blank disc'.
    Any ideas?

    Regards, shiner.

If the format of those files recorded by the camera is familiar with the ones we regularly use our computers, I suggest that you connect your camera to your computer, then go to "My Computer", look for your camera which is seen as a storage device in the list of other devices connected to the computer. Right click on it, find "Open" then see what's stored in it.

    Ok. Those files you mentioned are coded in a special order in your SD Card or the HDD of your camera. If you give proper names that you can easily remember while recording videos, then you can activate the "Search" function in the relevant folder on your computer in order to pick them easily before the burning process.

    This is additional info from

    Check out the web page given above, especially the Workflow Solution part of the article.

    But, at least we've learned that the camera saves the data in a .MOD file which is an MPEG-2 codec. This is fine for direct transfer to DVD.

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!

search the on screen menu on the JCV and check the output file type and output via firewire. Macs are good with most video types but likes firewire for video
