      This problem is slowly being cracked. I have valuable stuff that I can process but as you can see from the forums it’s no easy task.

      JVC .MOD files straight from JVC Everio are changed by well known file extension trick and as pointed out these do not have all necessary file atributes to be further processed especially by Premiere but they do for Flash 8 Pro. and .flv files are straightforward to make from converted .MOD to .mpg files.

      To edit the trick is to import the .mpg files into Premiere6 & 6+ but NOT TO PLAY THEM then drag to Time line and Export Timeline as Quicktime format and fully editable .mov files can be re-imported for any editing process you need.

      When I am fully satisfied and have documented procedure I’ll post it If any one is interesed

      I just got an everio 155 from my wife for Christmas (a bit early). I’ve noticed this .MOD and wondered what it was. Any way, if you are using iMovie on a MAC, just create a new project in iMovie and import your clips as you normally would. Then save the project and quit iMovie. Now go to the iMovie file and right click or control+click. This will bring up a menu that you could select “Show Package Contents.” When you show the package contents, you will get a folder called “Media”. Open this folder and you will find .dv files that can be opened in QT. In theroy, you should be able to copy the media folder to your desktop or wherever, and be able to edit the .dv files. The only problem I’ve noticed so far is that these are uncompressed files, so they could be rather big. Besides that every thing seems to work just fine.

      Use a program called Super. Works like a charm. Converts just about any format, including .mod, to .mov, .avi, etc.
