Inability to download video from Panasonic VDR-D150 camera


On this camera you need to go into the menu and select USB function and tell it to go into PC mode.

Otherwise the USB is in printer mode and the PC will not recognise it.

I am not sure if you got a manual with your camera so I have included this link for your convenience where you can download it.

The manual is not very clear on this instruction but see page 94 for a reference to what I mean.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.

You should have a DV Cable 4-pin to 4-pin firewire (part number VC-VDV204U ) which came with your camera. It would not have firewire on one end and usb on the other. They are two seperate technologies. see
