Connecting the Vista to your computer via the supplied USB cable the LCD menu will change from 'Turn On Video' to 'Turn On USB'. Select this option on the menu.
Most burning software packages have a "verification" option. This will considerably lengthen the burning session but is safer because the software will verify that the data on your hard disk corresponds to that on the CD/DVD. Burning errors are not uncommon, especially if you have been using other applications during the burning process.

I have a Panasonic Lumex camera -How can I download any movies onto my MAC, even iPhoto will not deliniate the movies?


On the CD that came with your camera, was not only the instruction manual, but also the software to get the pictures and videos from your camera on the computer.
You first have to install the software, than connect the camera and then you can copy the content from your camera to the computer. The software also helps you when you want to do some editing on pictures and or video.
If you don't have the CD, you can get the content to the computer with an external memory card reader. But still when you have the video on your computer it won't be usable on every apparatus.
For some players, you first have to convert the video to the format the player accepts.
To convert the video, there are several freeware convertors, that work very well. On my windows machine I use Potplayer on the mac I use VLC. Not sure it that program can convert, but i'm sure I can play (almost) every video format.

Software mac onto usb


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo management program.

iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

Can't download large movie files to iphoto : (


i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
