Hi wonder if someone out there can helpme.

I am presently staying at some friends so am on there laptop trying to this problem out.
JVC MG50EK

The owner has managed to loose / misplace the box that came with the camcorder
so we are unable to install the software to save video fies etc on pc/laptop.

I have connected the USB cable up and I can see it as a hard drive and can view the photos. But cannot do anything with the video's which he wants to save on pc before they go to New York next week.


I need the software for this camcorder if anyone can help me.

Or knows what software it is adn where i can download it from.

As we have no idea, I have searched the JVC database and cannot see what i need from there all i can get is the instruction manual's


many thanks in advance.


Magic!

I'll ask the obvious question, just to make sure :o

If it's windows XP then try running windows movie maker and connecting the camcorder up then just recording from the camcorder to PC using that, that's what I use with mine.

understood, BUT

when i connect it to his laptop with the usb cable, only cable he thinks (?) came with it (bear in mind he's misplaced the box)

I can then go to my computer and see a new HD there.

I can then see and view the images taken with the camcorder as they are saved as a .JPEG but the movies it memory serves me are saved as a MOD / MUI files ?

Does Windows Movie Maker open those file types then, failing all this I shall of course phone JVC in the morning.


Cancell that just looked :-

You can import files with the following file name extensions into Windows Movie Maker to use in your project:

Audio files: .aif, .aifc, .aiff .asf, .au, .mp2, .mp3, .mpa, .snd, .wav, and .wma
Picture files: .bmp, .dib, .emf, .gif, .jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .tif, .tiff, and .wmf
Video files: .asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv

I don't know about those filetypes, my camcorder's a Sony MiniDV model. As I said, all I do is hook it up and record the the HD through movie maker.

Try right clicking the MOD file and choosing open with.... and selecting Windows Media Player or a DVD playback solution like PowerDVD if available.
You could also try renaming the .MOD file to .MPEG and opening in Windows Media Player.

Using a Firewire connection I am able to capture digital video files from both Panasonic and Canon camcorders straight into Pinnacle software and without the need for any specialist canon or Panasonic drivers. So I guess importing into Media Player will be similar.
