Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS9 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Can't get video or pictures from Panasonic PV GS9 to computer

I just bought a Panasonic PV GS9 and have plugged it into the computer via a USB cable. I have downloaded Photo Impression and Movie Maker. What do I need to do to start the transfer? I started the video capture in movie maker but nothing happens. I am set to the web mode on my camera. By doing this, the program seems to recognize my computer

    I found that I had to use a firewire connection. The firewire connection on this camera is located next to the USB port. Make sure that you have previously downloaded the software from the Panasonic site.

    Following this, I downloaded photo impression and movie maker. Plug the firewire connection into the camera and then plug the firewire cable from the camera into the computer. From there the camera and scanner wizard should guide you through the rest of the process. I am using Windows XP and have had no problem getting both stills and video from the camera. Everything works great now.

Macbook pro doesnt recognize the panosonic pv-gs9 when connected with firewire

I take it that your macbook pro has imovie on it. If you open up imovie and plug in your camcorder it should recognise the camcorder and give you access to putting the movie onto your mac. Have a look at it should help.

How do it ransfer video from my pv-gs9 to my computer xp. i have a new firewire to usb cable but my computer won't recognize it.

I don't understand the "firewire to USB cable" reference. You can't just connect these two incompatible interfaces together with a cable. There is some kind of conversion device available to allow a Firewire connection to be made to a USB port, but the chatter on the forums says that it doesn't work with video cameras.

Some mini-DV cameras have a USB port, but only use it for stills and can only download video by Firewire. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

You don't say if you have the manual available for reference. If not, you can download a copy from THIS LINK
