Firewire in widget for NV-GS50

I have read that you can get a 'widget' to re-instate the inward feeding firewire connection to allow the recording of edited movies back on to the camera tape.  Where does one get this 'widget' and how is it done?

I want to download film onto my laptop from my Panasonic NV-GS50 and don't have the driver **** to load onto my computer. where can i get the software??

You are in luck! You do not need a driver for this camera to transfer video over the firewire port into your computer. All you need is the appropriate cable and some video editing software. The software can be as simple as Windows Movie Maker (if you are on a PC) or iMovie (if you are on a Mac). Plug your camera into the firewire cable, turn it on and put it in playback mode, then start your video software. Then there should be an option or menu entry labeled "import footage from camera" or "import" or "transfer from camera" or similar, depending on what software you are using.
Good luck and happy video editing!
