That's a fairly vague question mate.  Might want to try and rephrase it and provide a bit more detail on what you're trying to achieve.

What is the original format, bitrate, size and quality like? What format are you converting to? what are the settings any converter is using?
Only thing that can be answered from your question is that if you only have the converted file now and not the original, you will not be able to restore quality.

Try handbrake, http://handbrake.fr/, and use the regular or high profile setting to convert it to a good quality H264, MP4 file. Regular will play on more players and be less resource intensive to play and edit, high profile will produce a higher quality output at the cost of speed.

frame size = identical to original or 1280x720
frame rate = identical to original
bitrate = 1000

I'm not sure why you want to convert the video files anyway they are mpeg2 in mod container, just strip the mod container without converting and you wont lose any file quality.

try just renaming the .mod to .mpeg using file explorer, then retry to import into your video editor

If this doesn't work then use this to strip the mod container header so it is just raw mpeg2

You are not converting the files, so there is no change in quality, you are just stripping the headers.

What settings are you using in your camera? You should be able to tell the frame rate and file type from within the camera. Have you tried installing the supplied JVC software to import the video files to your computer?
