JVC MOI and PGI files

posted in File Types

I have a JVC Camcorder, Model Everio GZ-MG37US, which uses a 30 GB hard drive.

On the hard drive, in the SD_VIDEO folder is another folder, PRG001.

Inside that folder, in addition to the .mod file, is a PRG001.PGI file and a .MOI file.

What are they? reply

Well, according to the site bellow, the .pgi file is a management file. More specifically,

“[0051] Next, the structure of management files (e.g. PRG001.PGI) in the user area is described. A management file shows the correspondence between the content files in the content folders and the Key&Rule Entry areas. Specifically, a management file in a content folder stores data specifying the local number of a Key&Rule Entry area that corresponds to the plurality of contents stored in the content folder, this being achieved by corresponding the number (i.e. 001, 002, and so on) of the content folder with the local number of the Key&Rule Entry area." reply


How do i play or open this files??? reply


These files generally dont have any video content, just some weird codes for the camcorder and also used for successful burning on cds and dvds. So you need not worry about opening them. reply

MOI files just carry information about the relative MOD file with the same name.

I.E. MOV001.MOI carries information for the video file MOV001.MOD.

If your worried about which files do or don’t contain your video, just have a look at the size of the file. You should be able to see that all the MOD files are much larger in size them any other type of file.

If your struggling to do anything with your MOD files (like editing) as mentioned above, rename the extension to MPG or if you wish to do a whole bunch of them you can use a free program called SDcopy.
