I have never seen the CED format, but THIS might shed some light on it. Most JVC's, that shoot in "sort of non-standard formats," produce MOD, or TOD files. Have never heard of CED files.
Do not know if you have a "standard" AV file, and CODEC, in the CED wrapper, or something else. John T's tips should tell you more about those files.
Is this helpful?

Interesting reading Steve. I get a bit miffed that camera mfgrs. keep heading off into the "woods," with regards to file formats, and also CODEC's. They seem bound and determined to come up with something that just cannot be easily edited, and some are doing a right fine job at that. What's next, outputting files in DOCX format? I mean, videoing in eBook format?

CED files are more of a data or index files sometimes used by camcorders. When the SD card is not formatted by the camcorder before a recording is done then you may experience a problem such as recording in a format that the camcorder doesn't originally record in. I come across several people that say that the camcorder records in CED format which is wrong, the JVC camcorders record a MTS file however if the SD card is not formatted by the camcorder or is formatted using another device like a digital camera then a problem in saving the file will occur.
My suggestion is always format the SD card with the device that you're going use it with. It will avoid problems like this. I wish that the camcorder would give an error message instead of recording as a data file.
