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

You are going to have to check that your firewire is being seen by windows 7 first of all. If not you will need to rectify that. When you do get it to recognize it, here is a link for an update to the program that came with your camcorder for it to work with Windows Vista but it should also work for Windows 7.
Under the strap is a DV Connector on the camera. That is a firewire port to connect to a computer. You'll need a "4-pin to 6-pin" firewire cable (Best Buy, any computer store - $20) to connect up the camera to your computer. If it's a Mac, you're all set - iLife/iMovie is all you'll need, and all Macs have the correct firewire port. If you're on Windows, you'll need to make sure you have a firewire card installed (again about $30 at Best Buy if you need one), but you'll also need the appropriate software...
Another way of doing it on a Windows PC is to get a USB Video Capture device and hook up the red/white/yellow RCA cables from the AV In/Out port of the camera to the USB device. Most you buy today have the appropriate software to help you transfer. Sorry, it's really not that simple - it can get quite confusing, but feel free to try it and post any specific questions you may have. Good luck!!
Our model numbers in South africa are nv-gs47 etc. I know that all the new models like the pv-gs29 you dont have to use the firewire port on the camera, it is better to use the usb port because it is usb 2 you can do video streaming. The usb port is also more reliable than the dv port.So just check in the manual if this unit can use the usb port instead. i am more than sure it can.
