Question about Panasonic PV-GS150 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The computer recognized it once and now will not recognize the camcorder. I'm trying to use the USB connection, as the Computer does not have a firewire port

Hi I have figured it out. Even if the USB 2.0 is faster than the firewire the camcorder itself do not transfer at the optimal speed when connecting with the USB (even id the USB can transfer faster). So the only fast transfer option is the firewire

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.

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.
Hope this helps,

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
