Question about Panasonic NV-GS40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Does this camera works on Win Vista?

I'm having a lot of trouble, because the camera is not detected on Windows Vista. Does the camera works at all with Vista? If so, what do I need to install?

Yeah, I'm having the same problem with my NVGS27. Panasonic have sent me this link http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/info/vista.html which is supposed to offer updates. Have a look and see if your model is there. If not then you're as stuck as I am.
I'm waiting on a reply from Panasonic with some more info.
One other way is to install XP, this is supposed to fix it.
Good luck

Hello,
The device may not be detected by Win7, that can only be detected w/ other OS version, cause i have the same problem w/ win 7 ultimate 32bit, the Magic Jack is not working but it will work w/ win Vista and XP. try getting the SP1 for win 7 and install driver for that device and see if it will work, or you can also try installing vista on one of the partition and see if that will work.
Thank you for Using Fixya

Why is my ethernet driver missing ? where can i get an update done from ?


Well, there are a lot of reasons to cause your driver missing or outdated.

As to the solution, I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best regards!

Pretty sure you need to either install or update the camera driver. Go to device manager, then to the camera listing, and right click on it. Select update driver, and it should take you online to find a newer driver. OR, you may need to go to printers and other hardware, and select the camera there and update as listed above. If your camera does not show up at all, or if you have trouble getting an update, you can always go to the Toshiba website and get the driver. I find it is easier to let Windows update itself with new drivers, but sometimes it cannot, so then I go to the manufacturer's website.

You do not mention what windows you have sadly, all I will tell you is that no Windows Vista/Win 7 PC's will see a USB camera, sorry you need Firewire cable to download.

Please help with panasonic PV-GS31 !!


The driver for Win 200 will work fine under XP. Vista of course is another monster all together.
What I would suggest under Vista is the following.
Use the same Win2000 Drivers...
  1. Extract the drivers to a folder.
  2. Plug the camera into the USB port and Vista will detect it. At this point (if you are really lucky) Vista will have drivers in it's catalogue and install them.
  3. If it does not have them it will pop up a box and ask what you want to do.
  4. Choose select the driver from a list.
  5. When the window pops up, choose Have Disk and browse to the folder you extracted the files into.
  6. Pick the right INF file and then select OK.
  7. It will then begin to try and install the drivers.
  8. Follow any other prompts you see, and make sure to read each one clearly.
Hope that helps =)
