CED files may contain (but not necessarily) a usable stream of video data – depending on the reason for error occurrence. CED files are created with internal software of the JVC cameras, and they store unprocessed video data.

CED files are proprietary for the JVC label, therefore, there are no programs of other companies able to support this format. However, there are applications which convert CED file into more popular formats.


CED files are often created when the memory card was not formatted properly (e.g.: if a card was formatted in a digital camera and then used in a JVC device). Remember – in order to avoid such errors, user should always format a memory card with the device which will be operating on it. This will provide higher compatibility of data storing.
