The Windows 7 Operating System is not compatible with the USB Streaming feature of the Camcorder.

You can transfer the videos to the Windows 7 Computer using an i.LINK (Firewire) Cable.

You can use the Windows Movie Maker Software to transfer the videos from the Camcorder.

Please follow the steps mentioned in the below link to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer

How is the time/date stamp displayed on a copy

The time/date is 'stamped' onto the video during recording. The time/date stamp function can be turned on or off in the setup menu. If it was 'on' during recording, it will be displayed when played back. If it was turned off, it will not be seen on the recording.

When I transfer data from 25 DCR-SR 36 HDD to my computer I can`t see the date and time and other properties when I play the video. What should I do to be able to see it?

Please make sure of the Model #
Try transfering it using the A/V cables and capture it using any recording Software. (The Computer must have A/V input ports. i.e. A/V Capture card)
If you transfer it by USB, date and time won't be displayed.

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.

DAte/Time stamp

I was having the same problem, and was tasked to find a solution at work.

I ended finding talking with a developer who wrote a custom utility that can extract the time/date data from the .MPG (it's hidden in there somewhere) as a special txt file.

Here's a link to that utility: (special version for NTSC footage): (Special thanks to fnx91 on the videohelp forums)

Then you import that file into a piece of software called DVSubmaker which will convert that data in a special format (.sub) used by certain DVD/Video players to display subtitles.

Here's the best 2 options for playback:

1. Windows Media Player (need Mpeg2 codec) combined with a plugin called Vobsub - Free:)
2. ZoomPlayer (DVD Software) - $60

So in a nutshell, your displaying the original time/date stamp as subtitles on top of the video.

Contact me if you have any troubles.
