If You’re in windows you can rename a file with these steps:
1. Open the explorer window where your files exist
2. Select the Tools >> Folder Options menu item
3. Click the View Tab
4. Uncheck the option to “Hide extensions for known file types”
5. Click “apply to All Folders if you always want to see the file extensions for every file no matter what folder you are in
6. Click ok to accept all changes and close the dialog window
7. You should now see all the file extensions of the files in the current folder
8. Right click on a filename you wish to change and select Rename
9. Rename the file extension to anything you’d like.
Once you’ve done this, you can just right click a file and rename it in seconds. No software required!
If you follow this advice EXACTLY, you shouldn’t have any trouble. I run a Dell Inspiron laptop. It’s several years old and not the cutting edge, so I’m pretty sure that this should definitely take care of your trouble. It did for me!
I just bought a JVC MG330 which delivers good quality video but has a fatal flaw: it artificially limits the usability of its videos by giving them the file extension .mod which is not recognized on most of the Internet delivery services. I understand that there may be a way to change that to .mpg but so far nothing has worked.

I was able to convert mod files to avi files but still won’t work when i insert in power point slides. the sound will play but there is no picture. can somebody help , please? need this done by this weekend and don’t have time to re-record with different camera.
It is the video file format used on many digital camcorders, such as the JVC Everio, and the Panasonic D-Snap SD-card camcorders. Typically, such files are actually MPEG-2 video files with a different extension. To play such .mod files, it is not necessary to convert them but in most cases simply rename their extension to .mpg. Widescreen .mod files may need their aspect ratio flag fixed. More information on convert the .mod to avi, mpeg, wmv, divx, rm, etc. Plz go to http://www.videoconverterdownload.com/software/mod-converter.html
I need to edit some .MOD files in Windows Movie Maker, but they need to be .WMV for Windows Movie Maker. I tried just renaming it, but it still wouldn’t play in Windows Media Player. I tried renaming it both .MPG and .WMV.
I’m not sure what version of MovieMaker you have, but (for me) all you have to do is rename the .MOD to .AVI...not .MPG or .WMV.
From what I’ve read, the .MOD is already compressed like an .MPEG (.MPG), so when importing .MODs that you’ve converted to .AVIs your editing capability is limited.
But it still works.
plz, I need the equivalent converter for a .MOD or .MOI file into .mpeg or .avi or .whatever but for a Mac.
Can anyone help me?
My wife has a Mac, and here’s what I can tell you:
I tried the conversion method listed in the OP and while the file .MOD appeared to have successfully been converted to an .AVI, iMovie wouldn’t recognize it.
There is a really cheap, very safe program to download called EasyWMV (http://www.easywma.com/wmv/). It cost $15 and was able to not only convert my .MODs to mpeg-4s, but also .VOBs (DVD file formats).
With this program I believe you still have to rename the .MOD files to .AVI...but once you’ve ran it through EasyWMV, the file is good in any editor.
It sounds a little daunting, but once you have the program, you literally just double click any non-readable video file and it will automatically turn on and start converting.
this thread has been quite useful to me but i need some more info ... I can insert all the MOD files (from their MyWorks folder) into Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus and the files are recognised and it all works well enough through to the DVD stage EXCEPT the sound eventually goes out of sync - any solutions to this ?
i (like everyone else) have a problem,
my friend put all of the videos onto my USB stick and i just put it into my computer.

i have tried to convert them but it won’t work,
any other solutions, PLEEEASSSEEE HELP!
