Using JVC Everio GZ-MG .MOD with Mac iMovie

I could not get my movies to download from Everio one day - it worked the next - could not remember what I did, but when I tried Export to Library (instead of Playback to PC)- everything worked the way it is supposed to in iMovie 08. reply

how do you avoid the annoying ad for DVDrop that is plastered across 3/4 of the screen of the files it converts?

This is a super lame feature! reply

I have an Everio with iMovie 08 and it wouldn’t see the camera until I stopped trying to “import” or “Playback from camera” and I switched the camera to “backup” then it saw everything perfectly. reply

this is not the solution at all. and the jack offs at jvc dont seem to give a shit about its customers, therefor, we are left with a camera that is actually useless. biggest waist of my money reply

Hi all,

I think I’m about to go insane!! I have read through these pages and finally got to the last post about the JVC tutorial. I’m using a MacBook with Snow Leopard and iMovie09. I have a new JVC GZ-MS120RAA camera.

In the tutorial it says that you plug in the camera an an Everio icon should appear on the desk top. When I plug mine in, all i get is a NO NAME folder. I then open iMovie and expect to get a pop up screen (as per the JVC video tutorial) but nothing happens!!!!!!!!!

Can anyone shed some light on what I might be doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I think I am going insane (Especially when the guy who sold me the camera said “oh yeah with a Mac on iMovie08 or 09, you just plug it in and away you go!")

Thanks

make sure the computer and JVC camera are on.

Plug your JVC camcorder into PC, the camera needs to be on, switched to “Play” or VCR mode and have its cable attached. Sure the computer should be on. Locate the target JVC MOD/TOD files, then copy and paste them to your computer hard drive.

to edit or burn video to DVD on Mac, I will pick up Mac DVD Creator rather than iMovie. it’ll not only allows you to burn JVC MOD/TOD video to playable DVD; but also helps you share your moments with your friends in a easy way. reply

To any who are still struggling with this:

I have a JVC GZ-MG130U and have no problems nor require any workarounds to import to iMovie '08 (v7.1.4). Just connect the camera (for me, via the provided USB cable), click on the camera icon (far left, middle of the interface) and it recognizes the camera (“EVERIO_HDD”). From there you can use iMovie’s import feature to bring it in, widescreen and all, with no additional hassle.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Guys
I have JVC Everio GZ-MG465BAA and and MAC that I have just upgraded to Lion.
Unreal stuff.
All I had to do is connect my Everio to my Mac,
Mac Recognised the Camcorder ,created the Icon on the desktop and created folders with MOI and MOD files.
Opened IMovie ,created a new project ,Import files from Camera --> and Mac did it all by it self.
All Files were copied and created in the iMovie. No hassle. reply

Hi hope someone can help I’m so frustrated!! My .mod files to .mov files come up in imovie 9 looking for lack of a better word shiite!! They’re pixelated, grainy. Just terrible. I can’t figure out how to convert the files (in HDD) everio with the same resolution and look as the original .mod files. Please help, I’m about to toss the JVC out the window!!

Its really quite comomn for reliability to be questionable during the breakin period for a lot of firearms. I didn’t have any issues, but my very nice Kahr PM9 warns that the shooter should place 200 rounds through the weapon before it is considered fully broken in.Kel-Tec also offers a lifetime warranty on their products which is very nice. I really wish this were a semi-automatic shotgun though, but I like the fact that you can switch between two types of ammunition! reply
