Question about Panasonic NV-DS60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Firewire vs USB

Is there a USB cable available for use with NV DS60 or can you only transfer files through firewire? If it is only by firewire, can you get some hardware that will allow you to use firewire in conjunction with USB as my PC doesnt have a firewire port? thanks

If there is not a USB connector port on your model, then you could buy a FIREWIRE to USB adapter. Price is not cheap!

It may be cheaper to install a FIREWIRE PC CARD on your PC.

Hope this helps!

I have a nv-gs140 with a usb cable. I can transfer pictures to my pc - but I don't know how to transfer the video tape to the pc?

You must connect using a firewire cable to the camera firewire port and computer. Firewire may also be called iLink or IEEE1394a.
Open Windows Movie Maker for PCs or iMovie using a Mac.
Any other video editing application will also work.

Usb device not support in computer?

USB will transfer your still photos to a PC.
If you wish to copy movie files you will require a firewire cable and ports.
Usually a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable depending on the computer. eg laptop verses Desktop/Mac.

Cannot transfer tape contents to PC

To transfer video from your camera you will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your PC. If you don't have such a port you can buy a PCI firewire port.
After you connected your camera with firewire cable you can then use windows movie maker to transfer your video.

Transfer Movie Footage from my Panasonic NV-DS29B Camcorder to PC

You will need probably need a 4 pin to 6-pin firewire cable with adapter..
A software called Showbiz DVD2 was able to detect my camera and allow me to control the Camera options via the firewire cable to transfer the full video to my hard drive. You can also use a video program like Pinnacle or Roxio Media. Hope this helps you out. I know how bummed I was before.

Transfering from digital camcorder to PC - help

Can't determine this one. "What is the best and easier way to transfer "... Sadly this one can't be answered since we'd have to create some list of software, install and connect with USB or Firewire and tabulate the results. Usually, we have to just settle with others here sharing what works for them, but best is rarely found.
