Question about Panasonic PV-DV953 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
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

CCD sensor faulty and has to be replaced. A properly manufactured CCD transduced should last +-15 years so you should isist on having it repaired free of charge by Panasonic agent. ( worst case pay for labor but not the faulty component : 1 hour labour with this problem ).

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.
