This is extremely weird, about two months ago or more I was able to save movies to my camcorder just fine with windows movie maker, now all of the sudden when I click save to camcorder, it just stays there and does nothing, I can save movies from my camcorder to my computer just fine, but I cant do the reverse... I decided to use other programs such as ulead videostudio 10, and it said that it couldn't find a camcorder... so I have no clue what to do...
Tey checking the output mode.... Samsung does not allow the option to transfer video easily. Make sure your default settings have not optioned back to nothing. check your connections are set up properly both on the camera and in the preference menu.
If all of this fails, check to see if show video in camera viewer or similar is checked or unchecked. I have not had huge success with ouptutting to a Samsung, they do not specialize in it, however, you mentioned you were able to before. This is my best guess.....

If you close the LCD screen while recording movies, the camcorder stops recording.
The maximum continuous recordable time of movies is about 13 hours.
When a movie file exceeds 2 GB, the next movie file is created automatically.
It will take several seconds until you can start recording after you turn on the camcorder. You cannot
operate your camcorder during this time.
Try transferring the videos to your computer. Connect the camcorder to your computer and open windows movie maker. Then use the capture from camera to capture it from the camcorder. Once its done you can save the captured video to your computer and burn them to a DVD.
Okay, it is a pain in the neck, but it will allow you to get your videos off of the GS300 and into a usable .avi format...
If you go to the Panasonic Website, it will give you an option to download two video editing programs. Movie Studio and SweetMovieLife. Download SWEETMOVIELIFE, the other program is very limiting, but SweeMovieLife will capture the video and save it as an .avi file and you can then movie it into a better editing program such as Camtasia or Microsoft Movie Maker. It adds a few extra steps to the process, but will at least allow you to use the GS300 in the Windows 7 Environment until Microsoft wakes up and comes up with a fix for this extremely annoying issue!!! Hope this helps! :)
P.S. If you try to use MovieStudio, it saves the file as an .hap file and does not give you another option. None of my "real" video editing programs recognize that extension. Personally, I think the program was pretty useless.
Oddly I have the oposite of this problem. I actually did find the drivers but now I need to find a software that will record the video off of it. I normally use MotionDV STUDIO but for some reason it won't detect this camera.
Here is the link to the drivers you all are looking for.
install the driver cd camed with your camcorder to your pc. connect usb from camcorder to the pc. it should be recognizable by your desktop. find any movie maker or use ulead movie maker to upload your videos from your camcorder to your pc. save it in any type of videos do you like so that its playable. burn it with nero if you want to watch in your dvd player. hope that helps you!
try to put the dvd disc to a dvd rom of your computer. i hope it reads it. then save it to your computer. so that in near future youll have the videos from the dvd disc. edit it in some video making softwares like ulead movie maker, windows movie maker, nero movie maker etc.. and make a full quality dvd video of your own. hope that helps!
My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
I' and many others, encountered the same problem. I've searched for a solution, and luckily, I found one that works for me. Hope it'll work for you as well:
Go into your windows\inf folder, find the two msdv files ('msdv.inf.1'
and 'msdv.pnf.1') and remove the .1 from the filenames. Your camcorder
should install fine.
