HDC-SD5 + iMac = perfect compatibility I have an iMac (early 2011).-I remove the SDHC card from the camera-plug the card directly into the iMac SD slot (Below the CD/DVD slot) -wait 5 seconds till iMovie or Final Cut X download high-quality HD video. I was digitizing video on a Mac IIx back in the late 1980's, a long, tiresome error-ridden process that only just worked.The tools we have today are brilliant.Anybody wanting to do serious or hobby video on a computer needs one of Steve Jobs' babies.No downloads of drivers, no conversions, no installation.Just plug 'n play. Hope this helps
I just used HDWriter today to copy a film I took from a new Panasonic HDC-HS250K to DVD. It took about 30 minutes to complete, and the movie was only 1 Gb; about 5-10 minutes of HD. I used a Memorex DVD+R that I happen to have from a couple years ago. The video looks very good played back on my PC or HD TV using a regular DVD player (not blue ray). I don't happen to have any other DVD except for the 2 sided which I hate to use for the short videos. So in looking to buy some more I'm concerned that DVD-R might not work so well. I've read some conflicting reviews about that. Anyway just wanted to let you know that the DVD+R worked fine.
Did have the same problem. If you have copied (backuped) the files to your harddrive, you must have twice the amount of free space available (working-area) on your HD to be able to edit the videos with the panasonic software. Default the workarea is c:\ (choose settings in main menu --> HDD Settings --> Select working area) After changing it to the d-drive (80 gb available) i didn't get the message and could working again with the video's!
Picasa can read and play AVCHD! It's free from Google. Simply connect your sd card and import. To edit it I've used Adobe Premiere Elements 7 but the image outputs as mpeg which degrades it slightly. Another option is to try the latest Roxio or Nero which will all play and decode AVCHD files. The soflware from Panasonic is rubbish! Good luck and ask if you've any more questions......
I had this same issue...I bet you're using DVD-R, am I correct?
Apparently you can't copy video from DVD-R to the HD Writer. Period. Just can't do it. (Would be nice if they mentioned this in the manual.)
You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.
I'm using a program called Handbrake (free) which I think can convert your .vob files (from the Video_TS folder on your DVD) to quicktime files, or similar, so that you can actually do something with the video...
Best of luck, I'm really no expert, and I probably won't return to this page, so a reply to me is likely not going to be read by me...
