Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB

I'm having trouble getting the video footage to appear in the little black preview space on Windows moview maker. The software 'wizard' recognises the camcorder via USB and I am able to click on the start button to record to PC but nothing is transfered. My camcoder only came with a USB cable. The user manual just shows how to connect the USB or DV cable. Need Help, please...

Re: Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video...

I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.

I can not get my iMac, running on OS x 10.8.5 to recognize my Panasonic PV-GS85 camcorder. Tried installing converters but they can't detect a camcorder either. ANy solutions? Any help would be highly...

You will need to capture using a firewire cable.
If you are using a firewire cable and it does not work try another brand of cable as some have a reputation for not handling DV capture.

Pv-L750 camcorder

I have a Panasonic camcorder PV-L750D-K

You will need to purchase Pinnacle Video Transfer.

It's expensive, but it's the most convenient way to transfer analog video (via a USB flash stick or external hard drive) to view and edit on a PC.

I have used this device with my Panasonic PV-L750D-K Palmcorder (camcorder) with success.

A few things to keep in mind:

a.) The Pinnacle Video Transfer converts the the video into MPEG 4 format - so you will need the Apple QuickTime viewer to view the videos on your PC.

b.) You will need to purchase a USB flash stick, a min of 4GB (I use an 8 GB flash stick), unless you have one already.

c.) Your flash stick should be formatted to FAT 32

d.) You will need the Audio/Video cable that came with your Panasonic camcoder (the supplied A/V cables that come with the Pinnacle Video Transfer are incompatible with the Panasonic camcorder).

e.) You will need to update the Pinnacle Video Transfer with the latest firmware update (available from the Pinnacle Support Site) before you hook everything up.

The rest is a no brainer. Just follow the instructions in the booklet, or view the tutorial videos on the pinnacle web site for more info.

Have fun.

You shouldn't. The PV-DV203 means it is one of Panasonic's MiniDV, digital cancorders. You should only need the cable(s) supplied with the camera, and either a FireWire or USB port available on your computer. Windows Movie Maker should be able to download the video and allow you to edit it.
