Question about Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

Panasonic PV-GS31 video to PC trouble.

I have the pv-gs31 panasonic camcorder and have a video that I want uploaded to my computer. I use Windows XP. I have the usb port wire that connects to the computer to my camera. I do not have any software that came with the camera. How do I get the video off of the tape in my camcorder onto my computer? I tried using Windows Movie Maker to retrieve my video but it says I don't have the camera connected but my computer says that it is connected. Help please!

The usb is only used for the still pics and for the webcam. You need a DV cable to upload vid.

Hi,

Browse through you camera's main menu. There might be a function that will enable you to switch from tape to sd card.

Cheers

Panasonic DV PV-GS31..My PC (Vista) doesn't find UBS attachment


Hi There, You need to use your firewire cable from the camera to the computer. You need to have a large or seperate hard drive to accomadate the video. You need to have editing software, and not the ones that came with your computer, but something like Pinnacle Studio 09 which is pretty easy to use. About $149.00 USD.
Hope this helped. mr cicmo

You can find a charger at Wal-Mart for about $45 that includes a car charger. I just got mine there after searching Best Buy and Circuit City to no avail! Just make sure to check the back of the case for compatibility with the battery and/or camcorder.

PV-GS31 often disconnects from vista


I called Panasonic directly today & asked about the Vista driver for the GS31. No such driver exists, but they are trying to develop a driver specifically for Vista users of this camcorder. Finally the mystery is correctly answered & solved for us Vista owners! woooohooo !
