Question about Panasonic NV-DS27B Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I use my battery in the DS27B, XP recognises the camcorder and I can capture my videos, but when I try to switch to AC power - XP will not recognize it as any device. However - when the AC adapter is connected, the camera is fully functional. I can record and playback without any problems, but XP will just not recognize the stupid thing while connected to the AC Adapter. It runs on 7.9V DC in, and I'm going cross-eyed trying to research a solution - any one have any clue what could be going on? I just can't find anyone else with this problem.... (all drivers have been updated and BIOS checked...)
I use WINXP Pro and there is no problem. I can only offer the steps that I use for you to see if it makes any difference. Sometimes the sequence can be the answer.Try this twice, once with the battery in the adapter and once without the battery.
1. Power down PC.
2. Disconect camera from PC.
2. Power up PC.
2. Make sure the camera is off.
3. Remove battery from Camera.
4. Plug adapter into mains (with or without battery)
5. Plug camera into adapter.
6. Plug camera into PC with firewire.
7. Switch Camera on
