Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during creation of thumbnails
I'm trying to record from the Camcorder to my Magnavox DVD Recorder. The first 30 minutes go fine, but then mid-playback on the camcorder, it stops playing and freezes up. I can do nothing at this point. It won't even turn off. The only fix is to remove the battery and then start again.
However, after starting again, the same thing happens. So far on this mini DVD I have 54 thumbnails. I can scroll down almost to the end, but if I try to scroll down after thumbnail 45 or so, it freezes up again.
It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the DVD recorder, because this problem happens independantly of it. I've had this problem before with different mini-DVD's.
I even have one mini-DVD where it had run out of space, and while creating the thumbnails for finalization, it froze up, and now I can't get the mini-DVD to work anymore. I'm very upset about this, b/c this was during the first year of my daughter's life - if I lose that footage - there's no way to recapture it.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during...
I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.

Unfortunately, only video and/or pictures from your (SD Memory) Card can be transferred (via the USB cable) to your computer. Video/pictures from a disk is not accessible to your computer. So, you may wish to try to playback the video (on the camcorder) with the output to a DVD recorder (using the AV cables from the camcorder to the DVD recorder or a VCR recorder). This assumes you have a DVD recorder (or VCR recorder) that will take the RGB input from the camcorder. Connect it up just like you're viewing the playback on a TV monitor.
To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.
OK...try this...plug your RCA cables from your camcorder into the RCA input jacks on the back of the recorder. If you have a VCR, it can be plugged into the coax input on the back of the recorder. Use the coax output and plug it into a RF modulator (about $20 at Wal Mart). Plug the RCA output cables from the recorder into the RF modulator as well (Don't ask me why, but it seems to work on mine). Connect a coax cable from the RF modulator to the TV. Make sure the TV and Recorder are both on the right channel. The RF modulator will have a channel switch to use channel 3 or 4 on the TV. Make sure the recorder is set to E1 (Rear). You can check this with the channel +/- buttons on the bottom right of the remote. Good luck.
