Unfortunately, Panasonic does not support the VDR-M70 with Windows 7 or 8. See the FAQ here: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/VDR-M70.html?t=manuals . The camcorder was released with drivers for Windows 98 (second edition), Me, 2000, and XP.

If you have Windows 7 Pro, you can check if your system supports a virtual computer environment. If you can load a virtual OS, enable virtualization in turn on/off Windows features. (Go to the Control Panel under Programs. Then click on the link. Scroll through the list to find the desired line and check the box.) The XP mode software is available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8002 . Install the program (including setting up the disc space needed). Then launch the OS and install the software and camcorder driver in the XP mode. Use the directions for installing the VDR-M70 with a computer from the manual, starting on page 130: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camcorder/om/vdr-m50pp_en_om.pdf . I haven't found an online source for the Panasonic software download for the VDC-M70. Panasonic's recent software is here: https://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/soft/download/ .

I hope this helps and I wish that I had better news for you.

(I did run XP mode on a Windows 7 Pro desktop computer with an Intel i5 chip and 8GB of memory. I put in a second hard disk to ensure sufficient space for the second OS. It was a convenient way to maintain support for some older hardware and software.)

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder


Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

I want to download driver of panasonic VDR M-70 for Windows 7 , 64 bit


Unfortunately, there are no drivers for this device on the window 7 platform, either you are using a 64-bit or a 32-bit version of the windows, the manufacturers have clearly stated that the device cannot operate with the window 7 platform.
Unfortunately, this device is quite an old device and has not been confirmed to work on any recent version of windows(windows vista and windows 7). You can try to test it on other versions of windows to see if that helps.
Hope this helps?
