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.

Hello,

Best thing to do is to order a replacement disc from Samsung. Unfortunately, these files are licensed so you cannot just download it anywhere. Give Samsung a call and ask them to send you a replacement disc.

Good luck!

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 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:)

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.

I have a DCR-TRV22E sny Handycam and have just got a new PC with Vista. It says my old driver that came with the camcorder is not compatible, where can I get a driver from Thanks


If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
