Question about Panasonic SDR-H40 HDD Camcorder

Can't save individual scenes as separate mpg files

I just bought the SDR-H40 and installed the VideoCam Suite. When you import recorded videos to a PC, it stores all video taken on the same calendar day in one giant .mpg file. The VideoCam software still recognizes each individual scene, but outside of that software you can't separate the individual scenes. For example, in order to post shorter clips to a website, how can you isolate just one scene or part of a scene and save that portion of the video as a separate .mpg file?

    Same problem... All the video shot each day is loaded as one long video with seperate scenes. Not very helpful when you need to seperate the video for certain viewers!!!

Instead of using the camera suite... download your video from your camcorder directly to your PC in a folder (video's). there you will see each individual file (scene) that you took that day instead of one large scene. Then you can download/edit whatever scene you want into movie maker or just copy a sene right to a dvd

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. I can seperate the scenes, cut things out and do most anything I want thru the new software. Panasonic software was fairly useless.

Hi, the VideoCam software isn't compatible with Windows 7, but you can still copy videos and pictures to your computer and edit or view them with other software. Videos are saved by default as MPEG-2 files, and photos are saved as JPEG files -- both of these formats are recognized by a wide variety of programs. (For example, Microsoft's Picture Viewer, which comes with Windows, can display JPEGs, and Microsoft Office Picture Manager can edit them.)

Panasonic SDR-H40 shows files as mpg


mpg is Mpeg more than likely Mpeg 2 most commonly associated with DVD. Some new versions of Widows Media Players will play it some won't. The fast solution is a company called River Past has a video cleaner, it will convert your Mpg to a mov or avi or wmv. or a variety of formats, what ever you find useful. There maybe other similar products on the market for free check, but you need to convert that file.

Panasonic sdr-h40 will not show any movies or pics on the sofware


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.
