Panasonic Digital Video Camera PV-GS83 won't connect to laptop?

I have a USB cable that connects to both the camera and laptop, but I have to take out the camera battery in order to connect. The computer does not recognize it. I want to use clips from video to edit using Windows Movie Maker. I have Windows Vista. Thank you!

Hi, I have a panasonic pv-gs80 video cam and I would like to save my movies on my e-machine p c. What cables and software do I need? thanks Tim E-Mail timjune@sbcglobal.net


If you don't want to spend a lot of money you could use Corel VideoStudio. As for cables, your camera should have come with a USB 2.0 cable that would connect to the camera and then to the USB port on the PC. Or, if your pc has a firewire port, you could buy that cable to connect for a faster video transfere and capture. Hope this helps.

How to transfer PV-L780D panasonic camcorder video to PC.


For your SD card, you have to use the USB port to mini-USB port cable that came with the camera, or a card reader. Connect it to the computer, and turn the camera on. Windows XP and Windows 7 will detect it as a hard drive, and give you the options for transferring the pictures to your pc. You also have a firewall cable that you can use with the software that came with the camera. In case you need more information, you can download the manual that will tell you how here:

Can not find USB in the menu setting


Try you "firewire" cable. If you do not have a IEEE 1394 port on you computer add one on the PCI bus, or you will have to get some unit to convert the analog output(A/V cable-port) of the camera to digital via the USB. [Turtle Beach-Dazzle- etc] Unless your camera's OEM editing/ingest program is made to connect through USB, the camera will ship only stills via USB. The audio and video transport via "firewire"/ IEEE 1394 ports. Edit with what ever you want, but I suggest "Scenalyzer" to ingest to you computer from your camera. http://scenalyzer.com

How to connect Panasonic GS-36 to PC


Your camera has a 4 pin port on the side of it next to the USB port.....depending on the type of firewire connector on your computer will determine what type of 1394 cable you will need to connect the PC to the camera. Your computer could have a 6 pin or 9 pin connector (I'm betting it has a 6 pin). Get a 1394 cable that is 4 pin to 6 pin and you should be able to connect the two together....that's how I did it with my tower PC and to my laptop with a firewire PCMCIA card.

Make sure you have no programs running in the background when your rendering. Make sure your hard drive is defragged. That makes a big difference.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.

Panasonic PV-GS31 video to PC trouble.


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