The drivers built into Windows 7 should work fine. Have you plugged the camera into the USB of your computer? It will show up in "My Computer". This camera did come with a disk originality, but the only thing that would have been of any use would be the editing program, and windows does that now too.
It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.
i purchased a Pd-170 second hand online, when it finally arrived it had this problem regarding the red/pink tinge. I searched the internet looking to find what was the problem setting the white balance. There was nothing that could help me solve this mystery, so i took it to a professional company that fixes cameras, He diagnosed it straight away. it required a new CCD, Pd150/170s have 3 CCDs so it was an indicator that there was an issue deep within the camera. I got it replaced for £150, & that was without his labour,it can cost up too £300-£350 for new CCD replacement, Lesson learned NEVER buy second hand or anything online!
