Question about Panasonic PV-GS500 Camcorder

1 Answer

Wrong Service Pack for software!

I have a Panasonic HDC-SD5PP Camcorder and it's brilliant.
However the CD it came with to install on my computer (HD Writer 2.0E for SX/SD) will not install on it since I upgraded to XP SP3.
(I flattened my PC for a re-build hence the incompatibility.)

Works fine on systems with XP SP2 or pre-loaded on a machine prior to upgrading to XP SP3.

Can you assist as I cannot load onto the machine I do all my editing and downloading onto.

SN: J7HX00114

Many thanks in advance

That's about as close as i can get to that model number... read the information on the page... there is a link to the software update and that may fix the problem you are having

I have lost hd writer 1.0


Maybe you get one from one of your friends, who may have Panasonic camcorder too. Otherwise, it is impossible to install HD Writer AE without the CD.

What are you trying to do with HD Writer AE?

Have installed HD Writer AE 1.0 for HDC on laptop running Vista. Works OK. Have tried to install on PC running Win 7 but won't load. Is there a way to upgrade software to run on a Windows 7...


If you have the CD with HD Writer AE, justfollow the steps below:
1. Go to the Administrator account and download the update software from: http://cnc.asp.hi-ho.ne.jp/cnc/global_cs/software/win7/Setup.exe

2. Insert the CD-ROM with the HD Writer AE1.0.

3. Double click the Setup.exe you just downloaded, and follow the procedure.

I have a Panasonic HDC-SD5 camera and it doesn't work on I-Mac. The Mac can't read the files. What should I do to work with it on I movie ? Is there any driver for the mac ?


HDC-SD5 + iMac = perfect compatibility
I have an iMac (early 2011).-I remove the SDHC card from the camera-plug the card directly into the iMac SD slot (Below the CD/DVD slot) -wait 5 seconds till iMovie or Final Cut X download high-quality HD video.
I was digitizing video on a Mac IIx back in the late 1980's, a long, tiresome error-ridden process that only just worked.The tools we have today are brilliant.Anybody wanting to do serious or hobby video on a computer needs one of Steve Jobs' babies.No downloads of drivers, no conversions, no installation.Just plug 'n play.
Hope this helps

HD Writer AE 1.0 won't import my videos to laptop


Hi There, few things to follow:
1. Install an update from Panasonic website at www.panasonic.net (This is a pack of 4 files you need to download 1 by 1) 2. Plug your camcorder to the back usb and not in the front port. 3. Disable your Resident Shield on your anti-virus.
Done!

Problems using HD Writer 2.5E with Vista


I spoke to a technician at Panasonic. He said the problem is the 64bit Vista. It may run with the 32bit version, if gives trouble there is a patch update under Global Support/consumerproducts (digital AV window updates) at Panasonic web page. It will work with new Windows 7.
