Having problems taking off H.D. on cam to H.D. on PC. Has anyone tips advice on getting around problems?

I know the instructions are quite moronic, but have you used the menu system on JVC to transfer files to pc or used the Everio software?

I just connected mine to the Laptop (XP) and pc recognised it as a Hdd. Just dragged the video files across. Bit of a pain looking through them but I was on Holiday and had to get some space on camera/

Thanks JanetO
I'll give that a go. Tried several methods including the 'drag-drop' method. This only worked part way through before it stopped and then there was no sound.
Hi Demora,
I wish I had got the DVD cam now.
When I had my digital 8 tape camcorder I could use 'Pinnacle' software and view 'live' film.

If you need to convert the files (I think they're in WMM format) you can use Super free click here

Still got problems unfortunately. When I plug the USB in the cam states "USB MASS STORAGE" thus taking away the view for selection in the web cam view finder. Not a major problem if I could then get the PC to 'see' the cam in the capture software. It doesn't see it. The PC gives an error warning "Windows Delayed Write Failed". Any ideas? Hope to get a reply.

I have found that Adobe Premiere Elements will actually read the files from JVC cameras which I seem to think are 'MOB's (a JVC File extension) I'm not sure if there is any freeware out there that will help here though.

Thanks Demora
Hope Santa has a big sack!

Which version of windows Media player do you have and which version of Windows itself ie Xp or Vista.

I was lucky enough to see the space shuttle launch in August in Florida, We videoed this and I wanted to email the file to my daughter in the UK. I just connected the camera to the laptop. PC read it as a Hard drive and then I was able to drag the video across to the laptop. Laptop running winXP Pro and windows media player 11. My only problem was shrinking the file to a reasonable size to send to my daughter. BUT thats another story.

BTW I haven't loaded the software that came with the Camrecorder on anything. I bought the Everio because I was fed up of carrying spare tapes/disks around.

When you connect the JVC via usb it has to be 'off', THEN you turn it on or errors can happen.
