    Well your MOD file would normally be video and a JPEG would normally be just a still frame :/ so if you want to capture one picture then that's right but otherwise you'd need to convert it to a .avi or similar.

    Either way, most people seem to recommend cyberlink power director http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/produ...n_4_en_GB.html

    It is a movie file! It's an mpeg2 video/movie file

    Yep kinda surprised if the jvc software doesnt allow you to grab a jpg from a movie as ukwdwnut says :/ you could always pause it and do a screen shot if you really just want a still.

    If you want the video converted then I think that application is best. In fact you can rename the .mod to .mpg and play/import it into other applications but I think you lose the sound doing it that way

    .MOD files are JVC's implementation of MPEG-2 transport streams, similar to a VOB file on a DVD or the M2T files used on Sony hard drive camcorders. You don't actually need to convert the files to .MPG in order to make them playable on your computer, you can simply rename them in most cases to .mpeg.

    I play my MOD files with Windows media player and don't need to convert them to mpg format.

    That might be all you need lozzy!
