    Convert .mod file to avi file

    I've got a jvc everio hdd camcorder and it saves the video files in .mod format which most programmes don't recognise.

    Anybody know of a quick way to convet these types of files?

    I have found one way using power director but that takes forever if you want to convert each individual file and not make them all into one avi.

    can the software that came with camera not do it?

    okay i just found out they are MPEG2 files so just change the file extension,
    why do you need them to be avi??

    The only way to do it with the software that came with it is long and drawn out as i said in the origianl post ,changing the file extension doesn't help.

    as i said it needs to be avi as the likes of windows movie maker doesn't recognise a mod file

    sorry i cant help you then

    Sdcopy is the way to go without losing any of the original quality

    You can change the file extension to .mpg - there are quite a few convertors that will change .mpg to .avi out there - just google it if you really need to change them after that - I'd suggest you don't.

    ive also got a jvc, just rename it from .mod to .avi at it works fine

    Just tried it and yup it works, just right click and choose rename, delete .mod and replace with .avi

    What I do is select the folder on the camera, then select an output … What I do is select the folder on the camera, then select an output folder on the PC, hit in a prefix for the files for example 'trampoline class' then hit go and it does it.



    excellent idea, all the files i've just transfered have just got numbers at the moment :?
