How to use JVC Everio GZ-HD6 as a backup disk for computer?

I have a JVC Everio GZ-HD 6 and want to use its 120GB built-in hard drive to back up my iTunes Library folder. But I also want to continue to use the camcorder unaffected. The hard drive is read-only and is MS-DOS formatted.

How do I make the drive writable, and use it as a drive, whilst still being able to use the camera for it's intended purpose?

Great Question +


I agree, this is a very useful question- however, as more and more camcorders nowadays use SD cards, this specifically becomes irrelevant. But it's nice to have a camcorder with a second use. No need to carry around a camcorder and external HD when traveling.

This may work:

1) Clone the drive to back it up

2) format

3) partition

Hopefully this will work for you. I'm assuming you know how to do all of these steps.

Thanks very much! Can you do all these steps in Disk Utility? If so, yes I can


Cloning I guess you can but most people like super duper (and carbon copy cloner is good i hear). Most disk repair softwares have such functionality. Formatting and partitioning can easily be done in DU.

You would have to format the drive from your mac with a partition. But I don't know for sure that the camcorder would work without it having to format the drive again and possibly removing the partition.

Yeah, I can pretty much do nothing to the drive in it's current read-only state. I'm worried about formatting it because it's OS might be stored on the hard drive
