Question about Sony DCR-TRV50E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have recently bought a panasonic NV GS60 mini dv camcorder, it did not come with any cables or software and I can not get my laptop to connect with it. I have tried a USB cable and nothing so I bought a 4pin to 4pin firewire cable and still nothing. When I try the sony content importer preinstalled on my laptop it says no camcorder connected.What am I doing wrong? Is there somesort of panasonic software that I need? It is a pretty useless camcorder if I can't upload the footage to my laptop. Please help. My laptop is a sony vaio vgn fz11m and has a 4pin connection that says ilink s400.
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

Use USB data cable which u get with ur cam.Install the panasonic software also packed with cam.And get ur video copied to pc.But this is a slow process because of Movie copied while playing.
