JVC Everio GZ-MG37u Cant Connect to Pc


My PC can not detect my digital camcorder. The model is the JVC Everio GZ-MG37u. When I bought the camera, it did not have the USB connector. I used the USB cable of my portable hard disk drive which has a mini-usb connector at one end.

I checked the manual and all it said was connect the camera with the usb cable and turn it on and the computer should be able to detect it. I set the camera to the record and play function and it could not be detected.

My PC uses Windows XP service pack 2.

Hope you can help me

I have the same model, gz-mg 37u and my computer won't recognize it either. There is no docking station for this model. Any other advise?

The camera must be "on" before you plug in the usb connector or there is nothing for the computer to find.
Set the switch on the camera to 'playback' before you plug in the usb cable.

I don't have a docking station - just the usb cable and the Everio. Why will this not work?

I have a m365 that wouldn't get recognized by the PC properly unless the usb cable was connected to the doc. The dv connection alone wouldnt make the camera present me with the intial menu to choose playback on pc/backup/etc.

Hey guys, i had a very similar problem with the everio. The solution for me is that the camera didn't sit properly in the docking station causing the camera and pc to stop communicating. What worked for me is to firmly push the camera into the docking station until the pc finally picks it up. Now i have no problem with the device.

Please check the camcorder with another PC so as to confirm the hardware in the camcorder. If this is not detected then there are errors in the camcorder main processing section which is not interfacing with the external port.
however if the camcorder works with another PC then it is possible that you PC has to be reinstalled with the OS and the drivers.

How can I recover a file from a JVC Everio GZ-MG37U

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or pictures with the camcorder(memory card) that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances.

Then take the memory card or hard drive out of your cam, and connect it to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Then install this software Wondershare Photo Recovery (recover videos and audio files too) on your computer. Then start to scan and see if your deleted files can be got back. Get the program from:

For Windows Version
For Mac version

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camcoder(card or disk) until you can recover your files safely!
