Question about Panasonic PV-GS300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Physical Memory Dump

I am using a PV-GS300 with window xp pro. I have 2 GB of RAM and a 2 GHz processor. I have tried using SONY vegas movie studio as well as panasonic software that came with the camera to do my editing, yet I always get a blue screen error informing me of a physical memory dump whenever I do any editing. I have already needed to re-image once and will need to do it again soon. What do I need to do to prevent this problem in the future?

Re: Physical Memory Dump

I would really think about the firewire port. Maybe a different card or updated drivers. Are you getting any messages in the event viewer? Also make sure that XP is up to date.

Anyway maybe you should just be happy that your firewire port works, there are many on here that are not that lucky...

Panasonic PV-GS300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Driver For Windows 7 I have used this camcorder on Windows XP

Okay, it is a pain in the neck, but it will allow you to get your videos off of the GS300 and into a usable .avi format...

If you go to the Panasonic Website, it will give you an option to download two video editing programs. Movie Studio and SweetMovieLife. Download SWEETMOVIELIFE, the other program is very limiting, but SweeMovieLife will capture the video and save it as an .avi file and you can then movie it into a better editing program such as Camtasia or Microsoft Movie Maker. It adds a few extra steps to the process, but will at least allow you to use the GS300 in the Windows 7 Environment until Microsoft wakes up and comes up with a fix for this extremely annoying issue!!! Hope this helps! :)

P.S. If you try to use MovieStudio, it saves the file as an .hap file and does not give you another option. None of my "real" video editing programs recognize that extension. Personally, I think the program was pretty useless.

Palmcorder Vidoe Transfer Issues

usb will ONLY work for tranfering "pikts" you "must"use a firewire cable,port,and software(sony vegas,pinnacle,ect')to"capture"or "save"the video to your laptop.(being you have a mini-dv tape cam)
heres the low-down, unless your laptop has at least 1-gig ram,160+gig hard drive,firewire port,dvd burner,2.5ghz processor,,,it's goin to be a struggle.
capturing a good quality video to your comp hogs a LOT of space(25-35 gigs per hour of footage!),dvd creation (authoring)is another world!.
if you simply want to put somthing on the web,buy a nice photo camera with video recording,or a mini DVD disk camcorder,OR-a HDD(hard drive)camcorder,,,ALL the priors dont requier anything "special"to get it on to your laptop,and can be edited for posting by simple progs like "movie maker(xp,vist)or i movie(mac),but if you want a dvd of your final product,you MUST have a "authoring"prog like sony vegas or pinnacle.
--from my experience for tape camcorders,firewire is the only and best way to get it to your harddrive(set  capture settings to "mpeg2,or,AVI"
good luck!!

PV GS39 Win XP Movie Maker

I don't know if Windows XP Movie Maker can detect a firewire based video camera.

Do you have DVD burning software such as Nero in your computer? That has capture capability to it.

Pinnacle Studio will detect a firewire camera. It is reasonably priced and easy to use. In fact you can control your camcorder from Studio in case you need to rewind or fast forward the tape.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Software

What u need at the minimum is an addon card for downloading(refer to the manual for the exact No. it is something like IEEE1395 or so) Then connect the cam to this thro' the cable.
If u use windows xp u have a movie maker. u can use that s/w. Else try to get pinnacle studio or studio 8 to dump and edit etc.
all the best.
