also, backing up onto a external drive is ALWAYS a good idea. get some software that prompts you to do so or add a reminder on youre calender/ phone.
or get a mac with time machine..... but thats another debate all together!
It's a JVC Everio -- recording onto a 30GB hard drive.
And I have a Mac and use Time Machine; I just didn't have it the first time I lost the movies, and then yesterday, the data got lost while I was making it, so it would have been impossible to save it.
It was *kind of* my fault though, because you're supposed to reformat the camera every two or three months, and I hadn't done it for two years.
