    My dv camcorder had the same problem. I had it stored for more that 6 months in the closet, once I took it out and turned it on, it did not want to play for more than 4 seconds. However, after following the advice of tapping with my palm it where the battery hook ups, It worked afterwards!! No joke! Thanks for the advice, I thought it would cost an arm n leg!! who ever thought!

I haven't used mine for over 2 years because of the mildew detected warning and not being able to find anyone to fix it for me. I just found this on the internet and am going to try it when my battery charges. Seems this is a common error for these palmcorders... good luck! "When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew."

MY PANASONIC MINI DV HAS A RESET BUTTON.  IF YOU OPEN THE SIDE DOOR.  THERE IS A TINY RESET BUTTON IN THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE. CAN ONLY BE RESET WITH A VERY SMALL SHARP POINTED OBJECT.

UNFORTUNATELY, I KNOW THIS BECAUSE MINE KEEPS SAYING RESET.

There is no reset button - the product cannot be reset - sorry. Try using a blowdrier to make sure there is no moisture.

You aren't going to be able to capture through the USB connection. If it did happen, the video quality would be poor.

If you have an open PCI slot on your motherboard, then you can get a firewire card to put it. It isn't hard to do.

Before you do, look under Device Manager, to see if you have anything listed for IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers. If you do, you may just need to get a firewire cable.

You shoudn't need any software for the transfer

Panasonic camcorder software


I have a similar problem but went to panasonic.com website and found something that hopefully will help a lot of you.
Once the webpage loads, click on the "Support" link near the top middle part of page. You will see three tabs and click on the 3rd tab labeled "Support."
Another page loads where you have "Option 1 enter model # or keyword" so type "PV-DV203" in the box next to "option 1." The results will appear and go down to the last entry titled "Drivers & Downloads: Camcorders." Viola, choose the software you need!!
Now my problem is, I have Windows XP so I don't know if I can still download these myself? I too have lost my CD software and don't bother calling for assistance: they will charge you $14.03 for another CD!!

Palmcorder


You shouldn't. The PV-DV203 means it is one of Panasonic's MiniDV, digital cancorders. You should only need the cable(s) supplied with the camera, and either a FireWire or USB port available on your computer. Windows Movie Maker should be able to download the video and allow you to edit it.
