Bought an awesome camera--JVC HD Memory Card Camera Recorder Model #GY-HM100U

I have Windows. I have downloaded every program recommended--including PowerDirectorDelue 8, Quicktime 7 and Quicktime 7 Pro, DivX among many others.

We haved tried recording in MOV and MP4. We have tried it on 3 different computers.

My husband and I have researched online for days, but can't open the files--all I can get is audio.

Is it possible JVC is not compatible with Windows? Will it only work with Mac and Final Cut Pro?

Does anyone know the secret to this mystery?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, belatedly I see your posting here. Did you resolve the problem, or give up? You can get Windows to view the MOV output from this camera by purchasing Calibrated's codec called calibrated {Q} XD Decode (don't ask me to justify the name syntax!).


This codec handles the XDCAM EX encoding. I really enjoy this camera and do my video processing with relatively low cost packages including reading the .mov files directly into tmpgenc for compression. Or Corel VideoStudio. Or Corel MovieFactory.

Hope this helps!
