How to Make a DVD With a JVC Everio

Updated February 21, 2017

JVC introduced the first hard-drive camcorders worldwide with the Everio camcorder. Everios provide a small, compact design, with a broad range of options and features for creating quality videos. The hard drive allows you to store hours of video, up to 37 continuous hours on some models. Transferring videos from your JVC Everio to DVD requires choosing a method most convenient for you, or one most suitable for the job at hand.

Place a new, blank DVD R or formatted DVD RW onto your DVD burner of your computer.

Turn the power/mode switch to the "Off" position on your JVC Everio.

Connect your JVC camera to your computer using a USB 2.0 cable.

Connect the AC/DC cable to your camera in the DC port, and the opposite end to an outlet.

Connect the USB cable to the USB connector, inside of the door on the front of your camera. Connect the opposite end of the USB cable to your computer.

Set the power mode switch of your JVC Everio to the "On" position.

Select "Create DVD" from the options that appear on the LCD or press "Direct DVD" button on your camera, opposite of the LCD screen. The AutoPlay window will appear on your PC screen.

Select "Import Pictures Using Windows" from the options under AutoPlay. The videos will begin importing videos from your JVC Everio to your computer. Monitor the import process in the Importing Pictures and Videos window on your screen.

Turn the "power/mode" switch of your JVC Everio camera to the "On" position.

Select the video file from an event by pressing it up, down, left or right, then press the "set" lever down. Select the video file from the recording date by moving the "set" lever up or down, then press down. Select the video file from a playlist by moving the "set" lever up or down, then press down.

Display the DVD Creation List by pressing the middle button left of the LCD screen to the "Up" position.

Select the disk number you want by moving the "set" lever up or down. The disk number lets you know how many DVD disks you can create. Create all of the DVD disks listed when you select "All." You will see a check mark next to any disk that was already created.

Select "Execute" by moving the "set" lever up or down from the screen labelled "All Will Be Created," followed by the time required for the DVD copy. Press the "set" lever to "Set" the execution. Your camera will begin to create the DVD.

Press the set lever down when you see "Completed" on the LCD screen. Change the DVD disk to a second disk if you see "Completed. Change Disc" on the screen. Select "Cancel" if you need to cancel the creation of the DVD.

Press "Menu," and then select "Execute" by positioning the "set" lever up or down to select "Execute." Press down on the "set" lever to exit the screen.

Switch the analogue input to the "Off" position, which will switch the AV/S connector of your JVC Everio camera to "output."

Turn your camera and VCR/DVD recorder off, then connect the AC adaptor to the back of your camera labelled "DC," and the other end to the AC outlet. Connect the AV cable to the AV connector located on the back of your camera, inside the small door, just above the DC connector. Connect the opposite end of the AV cable to the video, audio and AV input connectors on the VCR/DVD recorder.

Set the VCR/DVD recorder to the "AUX" input mode.

Start the playback on your JVC Everio camera by turning the "power/mode" switch to the "Mode" position. The switch will return to the original "On" position when you release it. Press the "Play/Rec" button, which brings up an index display of videos on the LCD screen from which you can choose.

Move the "set" lever button up, down, left or right to choose the video file you want, and then press down on the "set" lever button to select the video. The selected video will begin to play immediately.

Start recording on your VCR/DVD recorder at the point where you want to start dubbing.

Stop the DVD dubbing by stopping the recording on your VCR/DVD recorder, then press the "Rec" button on your camera. Follow the directions on your VCR/DVD to finalise the DVD disk.
