Question about JVC Everio G Camcorder

JVC Everio GZ-MG145 backup on mac - files are .mod

I recently purchased a JVC Everio GZ-MG145 HD camcorder and the filming has been great.

However.

I cannot get the files onto my mac.

I can view them on the windows pc, but they can't be accepted in Windows Movie Maker.
On the mac, the camera comes up as normal with a thumbdrive icon, and I can find the movies on there, but they're a .mod file which a) i've never heard of and b) isn't accepted by quicktime or vlc. When I put the disc that comes with the camera into the pc it works and it installed "PowerCinema NE for Everio" and that works fine. But on the Mac, which is where I need the files, it comes up with a CD on the desktop with a whole load of junk on it with no installer or anything I can find. Can anyone help me?

I've been pointed in directions of codecs but I'm not sure what I'm dealing with there.

Please help!
Cheers.

The software iVerio might help you. It transfers and converts automatically all your videos from your HDD camcorder.

Hi Antonius,

Welcome to FixYa.

Unfortunately, JVC does not provide the complete software for download. You will have to purchase the software by contacting JVC support in your country.

But, you can transfer the files to your computer without installing the software as shown in the below images:

Can't transfer videos from JVC Everio camcorder onto my MAC


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!
