Panasonic NVGS60 mini dv camcorder

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.

Hi!
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!

Fire wires are available for almost all cameras, they are easy to get at the local electronics store or on line, I buy mine through ebay. All you need is the model number of the camera and the salesperson can locate the cable you need, or better yet take the camera with you and let them match it up for you. try radio shack. Most computers have the software for the transfers already installed, there are a ton of software options out there to use just look for one that fits your price range. I use Nero and it is available on line or in stores. you can't record without the tape, there are no hard drives in this camera to store video. You can hook the camera up and record directly to the computer through the fire wire. The tapes can be used over and over again till they start to wear down, but you should easily uses these 10 times or more before getting an new one. I doubt any store will take a trade in, maybe a small family owned store could work with you, or maybe a pawn shop. The laptop probably will not hold a lot of video in the memory but you can burn these on to a DVD disc using either windows or Nero.

Can not connect mini dv camcorder to sony vaio laptop


there are many post on various sites that state the same as you ihave the same prob with a sony which i paid £999,00 for and it wont connect i have been researching this problem for months on and of and cannot get any further, what may help you is some information that i have discovered , there are diffrent vers of firwire difrent baud rates this could be one reason for non detection ms sp1 has a diffrent ver to sp2 it is not easy to reinstall sp1 1394 as you need to diable cabbinet files to stop the reloading of the deleted sp2 speed 1394,ther are a few hotfixes avilable from ms on xp not suer about vista also if you plug a faster 1394 device into your machine it could diasble the slower ones , and now for the the killer any manufactur that incorporates 1394 in ther package has to purchase an extremly expensive license and microsoft are heavy into the development of usb stuf and are not concentrating on 1394 hence very little or no support, the only thing you could try is download virtual pc free from ms download site and install the op sys that pertains to the age of the cam good luck

Laptop not recognizing USB connection from HC20


I'm not sure why the camcorder is giving you an error message... but you should know that this "Burn VCD" thing is a pretty nasty hack from Sony. 

This will only work in conjunction with the Sony "Picture Package" software.. you have to have that running and properly set up for the video transfer via USB to work. And if it does work, the quality will be horrible -- 1/4 the resolution of you DV images, and arguably worst than VHS tape.

For a real video transfer from any mini-DV camcorder, you need a Firewire connection (Sony calls this i.Link), and a video
capture utility (Windows Movie Maker will work, that's included with most versions of Windows these days). A good video package will allow you to convert the DV footage into DVD, which maintains the quality of the DV camcorder's native format.
