Panasonic VHS-C camcorder: how to transfer video to my PC?

Subject title says it all...

I have a supplied PC connection 9-pin cable that came with the camcorder.

However, the camera manual provides instructions on how to transfer live or still images only - and not recorded video.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions how I could get my recorded video off the camcorder onto my PC (windows XP or VISTA).

Thanks for any and all help.

Please get yourself a capture card. That will have a video socket that is compatible with your VHS-C camera and PC.

SOURCE: Transfering from camcorder to VHS tape

1. Using the A/V Cables provided, connect the proper end of the cable to the Camcorder where labeled A/V Jack 2. Connect the other end to the A/V inputs on the VCR. (Location of A/V jacks may vary by model) 3. You must activate the video mode on your VCR. Look for a button labeled: TV/VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, LINE IN, LINE 1, etc. (For more information, consult the User Manual for the VCR.) 4. Once you are able to view the camcorder playback on your television, press Record on the VCR and play on the Camcorder.

I do not transfer video by usb dv cable

That's correct, USB cannot transfer video from the tape.
You must use a firewire cable the suits the camera and computer. Usually a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable. Check your equipment for the correct port.
The camera will be 4 pin. Laptops are usually 4 pin. Desktops are 6 pin with later models having 9 pin as well.

I cant taransfer my video from vz55 vhs movie camera panasonic nv vz55to pc as i do not have transfer cable pls help to find where i can buy this cable and how

To do the transfer you will require an Analouge to Digital Converter box.
You connect the camera to the A/D Converter with analogue cables (RED, WHITE AND YELLOW RCA connectors) then use a firewire cable to connect the A/D Converter to the computer.

Cant transfer videos to pc

Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.

Option 3:

If you are using an i.LINK cable then:

The Camcorder will flash the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK/Firewire cable is connected to the Camcorder.

If you are getting the DV IN message then it indicates that the Camcorder recognize the connection.

If you are not getting the DV IN message as soon as the i.LINK cable is connected with the Camcorder then the issue may be with either the Camcorder or with the i.LINK cable.

Try resetting the Camcorder or try with different i.LINK cable. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder. (You will be able to locate the RESET button by opening the LCD Screen. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object).

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

If the issue still persists after resetting the Camcorder and with different i.LINK cable then your Camcorder requires service to resolve the issue.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to connect Panasonic GS-36 to PC

Your camera has a 4 pin port on the side of it next to the USB port.....depending on the type of firewire connector on your computer will determine what type of 1394 cable you will need to connect the PC to the camera. Your computer could have a 6 pin or 9 pin connector (I'm betting it has a 6 pin). Get a 1394 cable that is 4 pin to 6 pin and you should be able to connect the two together....that's how I did it with my tower PC and to my laptop with a firewire PCMCIA card.

Can I connect my VHS-C Palmcorder® Camcorder to my computer?

No. Since VHS-C Palmcorder Camcorders feature only analog outputs, it is not possible to connect the camcorder directly to a PC unless your computer video card is equipped with analog inputs. The only way to transfer images from the camcorder to a PC is by using an external device capable of analog/digital signal conversion.
