Unable to transfer pics from camera to computer. See several people having the same problem but no definite answer to the problem. Do you have to use up the entire disk before you can transfer any of the photos?
If you have Vista Home you will have to purchase from windows shop CinePlayer D.V.D decoder
for Windows Vista at about $17.00 to play your finalized disc I also advise anyone who wants to
dub or take out any sections to do it on your computer as you may loose all movies and pictures like
I did of our trip to Canada .

Drivers are not neccessary when transferring VIDEO on "GR-D" camcorders. All you need is a firewire cable (4pin to 4pin) or (4pin to 6pin) depending on your computer. Once connected, you can use free DV EDITING SOFTWARE like, Windows Movie Maker or iMovie. USB ports on these cameras are reserved for transferring PICTURES ONLY
Did you try uploading using a firewire card and firewire cable? It is an alternative to USB and is the most preferred way of transferring video from the camcorder these days. Also did you try uploading the video using windows movie maker? COnnect your camcorder to your computer and press the capture from camera option to capture the video on your camcorder to your computer. If you have already tried everything then the simplest way to transfer is to remove the 1.5" hard drive connect it to your computer(your computer should have SATA connector), transfer the video and put the hard drive back into the camcorder. Might sound crazy but its a very effective way considering the fact that it is quite easy to remove the hard disk from most camcorders.
Books have been written on this subject. The easy answer is go to a reputable camera store rather than an electronics store, tell them what you want to do with your camera and they will suggest models that suit you. All camcorders are now digital but some record on tape, some on a hard drive or DVD and some on memory cards. Those using tape don't have to compress the image so much and give better pictures. Normal digital video is quite good enough for an amateur, but high definition cameras are becoming cheaper. All cameras have sockets to transfer the recording to computers or other media or even play the recording direct to a television. Most recorded video benefits from transferring it to a computer, using an editing program, adding titles and burning it to a DVD. That way your friends will want to see your work more than once. Finally, again I say - go to a camera store on a quiet day with plenty of time to listen to their advice. You'll learn more than anyone can tell you in an answer here.
When you want to transfer pics off of your memory card you have several options.
Some newer model computers have memory card slots built in and you can just pop yours into the pc and download on your computer, or you can use the usb cable included with your camera and plug it directly to your pc.
I dont know about transfering to disc. My DVD CAM will only take a picture to disc or to card, but I cant transfer one to the other.
if any of this is confusing, you can just take your memory card to walmart or any photo store, so they can develop them.
