Question about Panasonic SDR-H60 HDD Camcorder

1 Answer

PC won't recognize

It keeps saying to connect the AC adapter, and I already have the camcorder plugged into the PC via USB cord. I look in the hard drives on the PC and the camera is not there. I recorded the video onto the HDD on the camera. All I want to do is transfer my video to my computer, which is the entire point of this device.

I don't know why they did this, but this camera requires the camera to be plugged into the AC adapter (via battery charger) in order to be able to transfer the data to the computer.

Step by step instructions to transfer recorded videos from jvc gr-d370u to Pc, please.


First, you need a Firewire connection (also called IEEE 1394). Most of PC computers don't have it, including mine. I bought a cheap Firewire card and installed it into an empty PCI slot, costed about $15.
I hope you don't have the USB cable and the firewire cable plugged into your computer at the same time. That can break things.

With the firewire cable plugged into the DV port of the camcorder and the firewire port of the computer and the camcorder is in Play mode (and plugged into the wall AC power with the power adapter), are you saying that when you launch MovieMaker and "Capture", the video camera is not recognized?

There are only two conditions that can cause this:

1) The firewire400 port on the computer is not working properly (how do you know it is working?). If you are using Vista Home Basic, chances are good that the IEEE1394a firewire port drivers were never loaded... so, that will be your first step. Get that port working and you'll be ready to go.

2) The DV port on the camcorder is not working properly. This could be for several reasons, but lets hope the DV port was not fried if you ever had the USB and firewire connections to your computer at the same time... Reset the camcorder to factory defaults by disconnecting all cables, removing the rechargeable battery and removing the little date/time button battery inside the camcorder. Wait for about 20 minutes. Put the button battery back in, then put the rechargeable battery back on. Set the date and time. Connect the firewire cable to the DV port, connect the AC power adapter to the wall, connect the other side of the firewire cable to the firewire port on the computer, launch MovieMaker - will it "Capture" from the video tape?

Anyone you know nearby with an Apple Macintosh and iMovieHD? You will need a 4-pin to 6-pin firewire cable and the AC power adapter. If it works with the Mac, we know it is not the camcorder's DV port. If it does not work, chances are good the camcorder's firewire port is bad.
Hope this was helpful?

When i plug my camcorder in to the computer via the usb its not recognised and the on screen menu tells me to plug in an ac adapter


Some camcorders require you to have the ac adapter plugged in to keep your camcorder on so that you wont loose any data if the camera dies during the transfer to computer process. You can check the Panasonic website for up to date drivers for the operating system you are using. I hope this helps.

I am trying to load my video recording to my PC


I experienced the same thing. The compact power adapter is simply the power cord used also to recharge the camcorder. Plug it into the wall at the same time as you have the USB plugged into the computer and it should be able to download.

Error message when attempting to record to DVD


Go ahead and install the program to your computer and see if the camera recognizes it. Plug you camera into the computer and see if it recognizes it.

If it doesn't see it when you turn the power on, you will need a different program. Pinnacle Studio will see it.

Panasonic usb?


The camera end of the cord should be a "standard" plug same as fits some/most digital still cameras and at least some cell phones.

If your camera is like my SDR-H200, you have to remove the battery and run the camera with the AC adapter, and the USB cord goes into a little trapezoid-shaped hole in the lower-rear part of where the battery was.

Panasonic hdc-sd1


i came across the same problem and even though you seem to be powering the cam from the usb lead and battery, you also need to plug the ac adapter into the camcorder otherwise it won't let you go any further, asuming i'ts not plugged in already, the question isn't that clear...

meanwhile my hdc sd1 is not even turning on, so think yourself lucky

AC adapter power not enough for XP?


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
