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

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.

My laptop runs really slow & windows media player doesn't work properly


Hello.

We need more info before we can properly diagnose your Media Player issue. Is the content you are playing from the Internet or is it saved to the hard drive?

Please test Media Player by doing the following:
- Reboot the laptop
- find a local video file that is saved to your hard drive
- double click it and see if it plays correctly

If the file plays correctly then the issue was either the laptop needed to be rebooted OR the content that plays slowly is from the Internet and your Internet connection is not fast enough to play the video smoothly.

You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Hi simontwaley,

Try to download VLC Player. It might resolve the issue. You can download it from www.videolan.org.

The issue that your encountering is because your media player lacks those codecs that needs to be installed for you to be able to view those files. It is a common issue for almost all windows OS that doesnt have those codecs.

VLC Player can play almost all of the types of video files. Without installing those codecs.

Dont now how to put music videos on my mp4?


Can you hook it up to your computer? If you are running Windows XP or Vista, your Konaki should appear as another drive. Double click on your "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Then double click on the drive that represents your Konaki (usually called Removeable Disk or the name of your MP3 player). There should be folders labeled according to media type like Music, video etc. Double click on the folder called video. This is where you want to save your music video files. You then need to browse to where you have the music video stored on your computer. Right click on the video file and select copy. Then go back to the Konaki folder called video, and right click anywhere on the right and select paste. This will copy the files over to your MP3 player.

PC does not recognize ML648B in USB Mode


Switch the Player to MTP Mode instead.

• The USB mode uses a file transfer class called the MSC (Mass Storage Class). This was developed as a way for files to be transferred onto an external drive such as a flash drive or an external hard drive.
• In this mode, your mp3 player will look and function like an external hard drive in that it will appear in My Computer as a separate drive. This transfer class is not very specific to the transfer of media files so the MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) was introduced.
• The difference with media files, specifically music files, is that they demand much more management.
• Downloading services can require special licensing and a limit on the number of playbacks a music file can have.
• The acquisition, restoration, updating, and backing up of these licenses as well as compatibility issues with file type and compression ratio within these digital music players demanded a more user-friendly and functional approach to file transfers.
• For this reason, you will need to have Windows Media Player 10 or 11 available on your computer to utilize MTP.
• Those with Windows Media Player 9 on their Windows 98 SE, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows 2000 operating system will need to update using our Download Center.
• We recommend the use of MTP over MSC (the USB mode on your player) because it is more specific to the transfer of music files. To change this setting, press the power button on your device once it’s connected to the computer until the USB icon disappears.
