    I am having the same problem. Went to the Panasonic site and downloaded the driver that they said to drive. It said that the driver is not compatible with my computer.



    I think it is **** that Panasonic is taking no inititative to help people that have bought their product.



    I am to the point, that I am going to go and buy a new camcorder, try and copy to my computer the tapes, and then take the new camcorder back to the store after I get them copied to the computer or to DVD. I am sick and tired of spending good hard earned money on products that the company, once having sold their product, takes no part in helping us to get the product to work.

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

My windows 7 laptop does not recognize my Panasonic Mini DV Camcorder PV-GS39 and therefore cannot capture video any ideas?


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.

Firewire


Okay then let's start with that. Download the drivers from:

Install the drivers and you should be good to go! Let me know if you're having any problems after that.

Try to connect a panasonic PV-GS39 to my new HP notebook with Windows Vista


Hello. I also have the PV-GS39. I had the same problem as you have, here is what I DID to resolve my problem.

1.Go to: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Cameras-Camcorders/Camcorders/MiniDV-Camcorders/Drivers-Downloads/model.PV-GS39.D

the above link will take you RIGHT to the web page to download the PV-GS39 Software & Drivers that YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE. But if you have WINDOWS VISTA then you can use the WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER software that is ALREADY PRE-INSTALLED on your PC then you will NOT have to download the software from the above link.

2. You HAVE TO have a: FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD. I got mine at: Best Buy for: $53.86 with taxes. The name of this card is: DYNEX FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD.

3. You ALSO have to buy the CORD that connects to the PV-GS39 and the DYNEX FIREWIRE IEEE 1394 PCMCIA NOTEBOOK CARD, the cord costs $36.79 ALSO at Best Buy.

I did ALL 3 of the above and now I'm copying my movies and videos from my tape in my camcorder onto my PC and BURNING the video onto DVD/CD Disks.

If you have any questions, you can email me at: uggyredmonster@comcast.net.

Sincerely,
Rick D. Michaels

Panasonic pv gs29


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.
