You don't need a driver. Just connect the camera using the cable provided with it; turn the camera on and set it to play movies. The first time it will upload the necessary drivers. THen, use Windows movie maker (it's included in vista, my version at least) to import the movie (if you don't find it, click on the start button and type "movie" on the search box). It's much better than the crappy software provided by panasonic anyways.

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;

SOURCE: No 1384 firewire driver for Panasonic PV-GS300 camcorder

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.

Good luck!

I lost the disk to my pv-gs65 camcorder how can I get another one so i can use my usb connect?

This CD had a driver on to allow your camera to connect to a windows PC, however unless you have XP the chances of your camera driver CD working is less that 5%, you need to pop into Ebay, type what you need in search bar, and who know you could be lucky.
