I've learned my lesson and will share it. Use firewire and try WinDV. Best of luck.

SOURCE: Panasonic PV-DV953D video transfer to PC

This is what you can do.

1) You can download & upload movie thru Firewire on miniDV tape.
2) You can take MPEG4 video on SD card only.
3) You can download & upload still picture and MPEG4 thru USB.

You use firewire (iLink) to access miniDV tape.
You use USB to access SD card and web video thing.

DV953 (MX5000/500) is very high end camcorder. They can do almost everything that most of camcorder do.

Just don't expect too much for MPEG4 video.
Try this option also you have to use firewire(DV) cable and DV input in your computer to import video to PC at least .

Hope this may help;

I need free download of driver software for Panasonic PV-DV910 palmcorder for my pc with widows 7

There are none to download. Panasonic suggests the following when the computer fails to recognize the camera:

  • After re-inserting the SD card into this unit, reconnect the supplied USB cable.
  • Select another USB terminal on the PC.
  • Connect the supplied USB cable again after restarting the PC and turning the unit on.

    Use the following steps to let Windows do the installation for you.

    Step 1: Use an Ethernet cable and plug your computer directly to your Internet gateway. Make sure Internet is accessible.

    Step 2: Place your new adapter in the proper slot or port.

    Step 3: With your computer running, a bubble message will appear stating that this device was not installed successfully. Left click on the message.
    But if the message no longer appears, skip to Device Manager Installation.
    Step 4: On driver installation failure, you can change the setting to use Windows Update by clicking Change setting...
    Step 5: Chose to allow Windows to update your driver when it is not found on you computer.
    Step 6: Once the driver installs successfully, close the window.

    Step 7: Click/Right Click on the Network Icon located on the system tray to View the Available Wireless Networks. Find your personal Network and double click to connect. It should request for a wireless key, which by now should have been set up.

    I can't see the other solutions you mention.

    This camera requires a Firewire (DV or IEEE1394) connection to download videos from tape. That is all there is to it. Some mini-DV cameras will download by USB cable, but this one is not one of them. The USB connection is only usable to download stills from a memory card in the camera in this model.

    The same is true of cameras made by other companies such as Sony and Samsung. Some models will download over USB cables but other will only work over Firewire.

    Plug my phone in the USB to the computer. And it isnt recognized. Also says i need a driver, but i have tried to find one and can't . i have a samsung i607

    First, download the drivers. Then once they are downloaded, double-click on them so they install themselves into your pc.
    Next, restart pc, Then start your program (verizon has the best one you can download from them)
    Then turn phone on,
    Lastly, hook up via usb cable.

    My computer does not recognize WD Passport WD2500XMS-00

    I use a USB extender cable so I do not have to get down on the ground and plug stuff into my USB ports behind my computer. Everything that I own works through this cable except the WD passport drive. (It is a 2.0 USB cable at that so that is not the issue, plus 1.0 should theoretically still work, just not at 2.0 speeds)

    SO...I tried to plug it directly into the USB port on the back of my computer and it worked instantly.

    Other people have reported a fix after finding that their cable was loose. This USB cable that comes with the drive seems to be picky for some reason. Perhaps these are faulty cables somehow. Hopefully this will help some people.

    Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
