    I have the SDR-H40 problem with Vista Premium. The CD software video cam suite puts the program on my hp pc (advises it does not like the SP) but it cannot read the hard drive. How can Panasonic sell such rubbish. Any solutions?

Same problem as everyone that probably has one of these cameras and not the exact computer the software was designed to run on. I got NERO DVD burn software and am now able to see the camera hard drive and recognize my videos. I have Windows XP but as long as you get the right NERO software your troubles will probably be forgotten. After learning of doing it like this I'm really glad the Panasonic software didn't work because I'm sure I have a much better handle on how I want my videos burned to DVD.

Hi am wanting to put some footage from panasonic sdr h40 onto computer


Your Panasonic camera has a USB port on it as associated by the accompanying cable that plugs into it and has a USB end on the other cable. Note that if your videos are on the SD card, you can take it out and put in your computer via a SD adaptor to USB. The hard drive files though are a little more tricky... you have to have the camera being fed by the AC adaptor instead of the battery.. (it looks like the battery and plugs into its hole on the bottom with a cable hangiong out that plugs into the battery charger.. You will not be able to transfer the files unless you have this power configuration.. this is to keep the transfer from being disrupted by running out of battery power. The files are MOD files which are MPEG2 files just renemed. You can rename them to MPG instead of MOD once you copy to the computer. The USB connection forces the PC to make a drive letter for the hard drive in the camera. I hope that helps out

Than ks!

Panasonic SDR-H40-Date/time missing when transfering video to PC


get a capture card, an AV cord ( red, yellow and white cord) and record it onto the computer. This will push the date and time stamp onto the video. There really isnt any other quick solution :-(, unless you sport 800$ for a highend camera, then all harddrive cameras have this problem.

Transfer my video from panasonic sdr - h40


try to use USB to plug your device to your computer. make sure that you have an installed driver for your camcorder to recognize your device on your pc. all brand new camcorder came with an installation software cd. now your ready to transfer your video to your computer. use any movie maker application like ulead movie maker, nero movie maker or windows movie maker edit it and save it. burn it to your vcd or dvd burner to play on your dvd player. if you dont have a driver i will find one for you. hope that helps!
