Question about Panasonic PV-GS400 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have an older camcorder/camera (Panasonic PV-GS400), great device, has actually gone up in value over the last 6 years. My question is, how can I find out (other than trying it) if an SDHC card will work in its SD card slot? Read through the whole manual-it only mentions 16 or 32 bit in relation to audio (offers 12 or 16 bit, 2 channel) and later says OS environment must be 16bit or higher. Is there any other spec that will tell me if it will deal with a 32-bit medium like an SDHC card? Thanks
According to the specs it takes MMC and SD cards, so I would say it does not take SDHC cards. If it does, the marketing department would certainly have said so.
SDHC cards are electronically different and will only work in devices specifically designed for them. Older devices designed to work only with SD cards will not work with SDHC cards, no matter how much the firmware is updated.

SOURCE: Connecting camcorder to PC
USB is not for transferring video from this camcorder. What you need is a firewire cable to connect camcorder to your computer. If you don't have firewire port on computer, you need to get install a firewire card.

I found the recipe. To get my DV Camcorder to work using 1384 (Firewire) on my computer I did:
1. Get a good cable. If you paid less than $20 for it, you got the wrong one.
2. Ensure that the 1384 (firewire) port is enabled on your computer. Go into the BIOS setup and check to be sure. Mine was OFF!
3. If you get an error with Windows XP not being able to find your hardware, you need to get all the drivers. There are four or five of them along with a configuration file. Miss any one and you are dead. My solution was to reinstall Windows Service Pack 3. This took a long time, but fixed the driver problems.

The USB driver gven by the manufacturer is not installing on the Laptop. you should NOT need a USB driver with windows 7 - the USB should automatically detect the camera
