Question about Panasonic NV-GS400 Camcorder

Video stream driver

When my old computer died, I had a clear out of unwanted discs, unfortunately failed to remember that the video stream driver for the video camera was on the MOTION DV Studio disc, as I did not use the programme think I must have thrown it out, anyway can't find it and need to find a driver that will enable me to use the digital video camera with my computer.
Have searched the panasonic web page without much success.
Can anyone help?

You might have to purchase a new program.  The drivers should be included in Windows XP automatically to get it to work.
Try pinnaclesys.com and studio will work with your camcorder.

Slow upload of pics and videos on my pc


I would start by clearing out your cookies, then I would do a disk defragment to clear out old stuff your computer is loading. If you have desktop widgets or are running programs that take up a lot of memory.
Go to Start, Control panel, internet options, and click to delete temporary files and then after go into programs, accessories and disc defragment. Hope it helps!

Have and old Sony DCR-TRV340E camera, how do I install driver for it on my pc running Windows 7 64 bit version. I like the camera, so do not wish to change it, and have no drivers with it


I'm sorry you're experiencing difficulty with transferring videos from the Camcorder to the Windows 7 Computer. Unfortunately, the USB streaming feature of the Camcorder is not compatible with Windows 7 Operating System. However, you can use either i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Windwos 7 Computer. I have provided a link where you can view the steps to transfer videos using i.LINK interface:

I have provided another link where you can view the steps to transfer videos using A/V interface:

Thank you for understanding.

Is there anyway to make this sony handycam support live video feed into a computer?


Unfortunately, the Camcorder does not support USB streaming. Hence we cannot use it for streaming live videos to Computer using USB interface.
However, you can use the A/V interface, it is difficult process, still if you need to use, connect the A/V output to Computer A/V input if the Computer has one, then use a A/V compatible steaming software.
Most of the Messengers and online streaming applications may not support streaming from A/V..
However, it is not a bad idea of connect the A/V interface if your computer has one A/V input as the A/V cable is already supplied with the Camcorder.
Pleaser remove the tape and Memory stick from the Camcorder when you try to use as webcam/streaming mode

I got sony cybershot dsc p 200 model digital camera. But it is not supported as web cam . Please give suggestions to set up the camera as web cam


Many digital cameras support streaming video over the USB connection, to use as a webcam. Unfortunately Sony cameras do not do this; I am confident of this, because they offer a tutorial describing how to make an analogue connection from your camera to your computer, for use as a webcam! (I feel this is a poor solution because few computers have an analogue video-in connection, and not all cameras have a video-out. They would not offer this solution if the USB streaming was possible.)

I'm sorry to tell you that unless you are really lucky and are able to follow Sony's tutorial, your best bet is to buy a webcam and forget using your camera. A whole webcam could easily be cheaper than the cable that Sony suggest you use...

I cant download my DCR-TRV250 Digital 8 videos to my computer. I tryed on Win 7 and Win XP, with or without Sony drivers... But no computers recognize my cam. Also I looked for help on Sony eSupport, but...


From the Sony support page for this camera, it has the following:
  • Drivers:
    • The drivers needed to connect your Sony camcorder to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.
  • Not Supported:
    • The USB streaming feature is not supported with the Windows 7 operating system.
    • The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

From the user manual page 184, they explain how to connect a iLink (IEEE 1394) cable from the camcorder to your computer. Since "USB streaming feature is not supported with Windows 7" as stated above, you now how to retrieve your video using the iLink connection instead.
Unfortunately, the camera does not come with an iLink cable, so you have to buy one. Additionally unfortunate is the fact that many computers do not have a IEEE 1394 connector to use with the iLink cable. As a result, you have to buy an adapter card for your desktop computer or hope that your laptop has a built-in IEEE 1394 port.
Once you get the iLink to IEEE 1394 issue resolved, you can then use the software provided by Sony or any DV capture software to download high quality copies of the video from your DCR-TRV250.

Cant instal drivers


usb streaming function is not readily supported by windows vista. this would depend on the software that came supplied with the camcorder. unfortunately, the software being incompatible and the funtion (usb streaming) not supported by driver included in the supplied cd-rom, usb connection will not work (although you can use it for still picture transfer). for tape transfer you would need to go another route which is ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) connection. it should be a plug-and-play connection. your computer should support and have a working ieee1394 (ilink or firewire) card installed. a compatible ilink cable for both devices and a video capturing software like windows moviemaker and having all the needed hardware and software then your good to go. hope this helps.thanks:)

Hi Can I use Nikon L100 as a webcam with my laptop. If yes then do I need to install some drivers?


Unfortunately, no. The L100 is designed to record images and videos onto a memory card, not to stream them live to a computer.

I cant seem to be able to transfer my recordings to a DVD recorder on my computer The video recorder is a Sony DCR-TRV22E.My computer is PRYON. PRY-i922vp


If the Computer is having Windows Vista installed on it then it's required to use a compatible i.LINK or Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer.
Once the connection is established, you can use Windows Movie Maker to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the computer. Make sure that the Camcorder is set to the "VCR/VTR" or "Play/Edit" mode and the tape is playing in the camcorder before importing the videos to the Computer.

If you're having Windows XP on the Computer and using USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer then it's required to install the USB streaming driver and the USB driver for connection on the Computer before you can establish a successful connection between the Computer and the camcorder for transferring videos.

You can install the USB streaming driver using the supplied Software installation disc.

How to connect


Unfortunately those old camcorders generally aren't compatible with modern computers. But don't give up hope, you may be able to find back roads and such to get it onto a computer. I'd suggest doing some research on the computer. Hope that helps.
