Question about Panasonic SDR-H40 HDD Camcorder

1 Answer

When I save videos to my computer's hard drive...

The video saves as two separate files: one has a windows media player icon and the other file I don't recognize. It seems that the data for the video is split into two files and this has cause problems when trying to upload the video to moviemaker or youtube

    There doesn't seem to be a any option for formatting the memory card on the camera menu. And when downloading movies onto the computer the software that comes with the SDR-H40 doesn't give the option of what format to save in - it automatically saves as the separate WMP and 'digital fingerprint' files (apparently it's an MPEG2??).

    Maybe there is a way to merge the two into one 'proper' movie file?

    Also when I try to 'save as' within WMP, the only option is to save as a playlist which is also not recognized.

    As a final note: when I try to import the movie into movie maker, I only get sound but no picture. It seems that it needs the digital fingerprint file for the picture.

    Thank you for your help

    Right clicking doesn't work either. It wont open as a quicktime video or even in HP photosmart. :/

You may need to format the memory card in the video camera to save as mpeg. This would be in your menu options. Typically it saves in a file to view and the extra attachment is the digital finger print that it can read from. If this doesn't work, try downloading the file into a different viewer instead of the windows default player. You should also be able to "save as" a different format from within the windows media player.
Let me know if this helps.

    Try right clicking on the file (mpg or wav) and try to "open with" and browse to select a different player.

Unable to transfer videos from Canon FS300 to my pc or network drive


MOI is a computer file format used primarily to represent information. MOI files are associated with MOD or TOD files whose content they represent. The Pixela ImageMixer Video Editing Software should allow you to save your videos to your hard drive. But you may need to install the latest version of Quicktime Player (free) to view the the .mov files as an alternative to the ImageMixer program's viewer.

Deleted videos from harddrive and want to retrieve it


Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available.
If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac

I deleted a batch of my videos that I didn't mean to!!! Is there any way to recover them?? (they were only on the hard drive, no memory card)


In this case you should try some video recovery software to rescue the lost videos from your hard disk ASAP(in case overwritten), here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photos and music.

Photo Video Recovery (for Windows)
Mac Photo Video Recovery (for Mac OS X)

Note: Take the free trial first, and before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the disk in case the original files(your deleted videos) are overwritten.

Is there a way to recover deleted videos?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

USB MASS STORAGE?


Go to your "my computer" icon on the computer and you should be able to see all available drives on the computer. Your camera should appear as an external hard drive. You can open the drive and then open the files in the drive. Simply click and drag the files from the camera to your video folder on your main hard drive and you are good to go. Windows Media player should play the videos....or use an editing software like power dvd.

Lost all video files from harddrive


Hi, John. First things first - do not take more photos and do not save anything back to the camera memory card. Then connect it to your PC. Pick a digital camera recovery (recover photos, video, music files) to make a free scan and recover the deleted photos. Regards
