Question about Video Cameras
I have just bought a panasonic NVGS60 mini dv camcorder and am having trouble connecting it to my Sony Vaio VGN FZ11m laptop. It did not come with any cables or software. I have tried using a USB cable and nothing happened, then I bought a 4pin to 4pin firewire cable and still nothing. My laptop has the 4pin connection and has vista premium, Do I need to get special software or what? I tried using the sony content importer that is already installed on my computer but it keeps saying no camcorder connected.
I have had the same experience with the same laptop. In my case, I went to Add New Hardware in Control Panel, and had my laptop automatically search for the connected camera. From there, it was automatic.
If this doesn't work, try restarting your laptop with the connections in place. Then repeat the above described procedure.
Hope this helps!
