I did this but windows movie maker will not import the file, it comes up:

Newton 3.mpeg could not be imported. An interface has too many methods to fire events from

Any ideas on this. I’m so glad I dropped the money for this turd camcorder. reply

You can try and create a batch file which is similar to a command prompt function except you dont have to type again and again.

Here’s how
1) Open notepad
2) Type in this one line code, without the brackets (rename *.mod *.mpg)
3) Save the file as filename.BAT to the folder where you files are located.
4) Go to the folder location and you will see your file.
5) Double click and viola. Instantly all your MOD files are renamed with the MPG extension

If you prefer to rename to avi, just type (rename *.mod *.avi) instead reply

There should have been a disk with your camera that installed a particular version of Cyberlin software suite. that should allow conversion to whatever you want as I have been doing for some time. I have two other versions of this software that came bundled with other hardware I purchased but unfortunately those versions do not have the codecs to play the audio of my original files. reinstalling the camer provided software works but again am disapointed by loss of features in the newer software. My solution is to have the original software on one computer where I convert to MPG files. I then take those files to the newer software where I can use the new features without having to spend the $100 on the full version of the software.

happy hunting, reply

Not just another mom

so what if you wanted to use the .mod files in the windows movie maker?

if you change it to mpg (rename), the sounds are way faster then the film, and in some cases, the film is also running way to fast.

if you try to import an renamed .mod file in windows movie maker (so its an mpg now) it sais that there’s an error

why does jvc make .mod files anyway

other question, does anybody know a movie making program that does support .mod? reply

this video stuff is pretty frustrating, i’m not sure if there is a better way to edit the .mod files my panasonic sdr h200 camera records. i use 16:9 settingto record Renaming to .mpg like so many places i’ve looked has said, does not work, because it 'squishes' the footage to 4:3 ratio..boo on that!

so far this is all i came up with:
using mpegstreamclip i convert it to a .dv
then i can import it into final cut to edit and make my superfantastical movie.!!

which actually sorta sucks, because it takes up 3 times as much room to convert everything to .dv, and still have the .mod files.

also if anyone has some info about why it squishes the picture when i change the extension to .mpg that would be appreciated.

thanks, and sorry bout the long post! reply

Hmm, It appears to of changed the format but in reality, I don’t think it did. I think I’ve got the same JVC cam as you all and after renaming the format I’m STILL not able to import and edit into Windows Movie Maker.

My JVC is a GZ-MG130 30 gig HDD recorder. It records in an .MOD format. What do I have to do before I’m able to edit my videos in WMMaker?

Thanks for any and all help.
