Can not connect mini dv camcorder to sony vaio laptop

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.

    Same problem here. MiniDV Panasonic was not recognized by any PC.
    I tried everything even first getting it on a DVD with my DVD recorder and
    than trying to put it to the PC.
    Movie maker in my PC does not support or recognize any file from the DVD....
    WTF I need to do?

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

Hi, You need to connect the cam to the PC using a firewire cable.
It looks like this. http://www.ectech.co.nz/images/usb%201394b.jpg

After connecting, switch on the cam. Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen


Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

Panasonic NVGS60 mini dv camcorder


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!
