HELP!!!! Panasonic GS180

I recently bought a GS180, I have edited the footage that I have taken but would now like to either put it back onto tape or burn it onto DVD. I have tried various ways of doing this via the USB. It basically says its not compatible and I am only able to save it as an AVI file and it's huge!!! (and won't fit on a DVD (6 GB??) - what am I doing wrong??? I've heard a lot about Firewire - could somebody please tell me what it is, what it does and will this solve my problem of downloading edited footage from my PC back to the tape???? Please help a.s.a.p Thanks laney123

Firewire is an apple gift to the video etc . world ( also called standard : ieee 1394 ); it solves some problems better than usb because it is a peer to peer connection ( all devices communicate with each other ) and your editing will be easier with it ;

Black horizontal lines accross screen


Initially, try a video head cleaner. There are versions that are at the same size of your video tapes but contains a cleaning strip. A cleaning solution is likewise added.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

Cant import vids onto imovies on mac from image mixer 3

Mac's camera editing only goes as far as iMovie. Importing more footage is almost impossible. You may be able to find a few back routes though. Hope that helps.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

I have a Panasonic hdc-dx1. I have taken camera footage but cannot transfer this footage onto the computer... HELP. It is an assignment due on Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello from Italy!
You need to install on your PC an AVCHD codec and a software in order to read the disk content. Nero 8 (with AVCHD plug in) can do it. I usually read the *.M2TS files with NeroVision, convert them with Canopus AVCHD converter and edit with Canopus Edius. That's all.
