-turn on and switch your camcorder to playback mode and make sure that the tape is totally rewounded.(you're going to stream the video from the cam to pc using a supplied software or a thirdparty software like windows movie maker)
-connect your camcorder to your pc and you have to use a dv cable(4 pin to 4 pin or 4 pin to 6 pin type) the first end is a 4 pin which will be connected to your camcorder and the other end depends on what type of dv port you have in your computer(4 pin or 6 pin) Use the optional CV-150F (4 pin-4 pin) or CV-250F (4 pin-6 pin) DV Cable. the dv port on your camcorder is on the strap side on the upper part and its covered by a oval rubber
-once connected to the computer,ready your software(supplied or any other software that could record streamed videos ie: windows movie maker.
-play video from the camcorder then hit the record button from software( you're basically recording the videos from the camcorder live to your pc :)
To play on PC your camera has to have cable to PC, plug the cable that you get with camera into sockets at rear of the PC, then download the movie to the PC with Media Player (built in your windows versions). bye David
The USB cable is only to download still images recorded on the memory card, using the software that came with the camera. To download video, you need to connect to a computer with a Firewire cable, and have video editing software on your computer to communicate with the camera.
Where can I download the software for PANASONIC NV-GS 27 for capturing the Videos From the DV Cam Cassette...Because without the driver either XP or Vista doesnt recogonise the Camera..So please do the need full. Tell me where I can download the Driver for the Same..
I suggest getting the PCI IEEE 1394 also known as FireWire card. Most of the time these Firewire card comes with a Video editing software but verify because you will need some form of video editing s/w to record the video. After recording then you can edit it however you like and transfer to DVD/etc.
Always a pain in the as to edit video. I've done it a couple of times. So have fun. I still have not manage to find a Video editing s/w that will do a 5.1 audio or multiple audio tracks (similar to switching between languages)
DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable.
DV-PC Recorder has the following features.
1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder.
2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone.
(Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.)
3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk.
(Optional editing software is required to edit movies)
4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
Only DV connections (IEEE1394 connections) are possible when connecting your camcorder to a computer.
DV connections (IEEE1394 connections)
Your camcorder can be connected to a computer equipped with an IEEE1394 (DV) terminal or OHCI-compliant IEEE1394 capture board.
You can transfer taped recordings (digital video signals) to the computer by connecting the camcorder to the computer.
Use the editing software supplied with your computer/capture board to transfer video recordings from tape to the computer.
If you are using a computer running Windows XP, you can also record the video simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape using DV-PC Recorder Software.
You can download the DV-PC Recorder Software from Canon's DV-PC Recorder Web site.
Making the connection
Connect the camcorder to the computer as shown in the figure below.
The computer's IEEE1394 (DV) terminal is either a 4-pin or a 6-pin type, depending on the computer used.
Use either the CV-150F (4-pin - 4-pin) or the CV-250F (4-pin - 6-pin) DV cable (sold separately), whichever fits your computer's terminal.
(1) There are cases where the connection may not work correctly, depending on your system specifications/settings.
(2) If the computer freezes while you have the camcorder connected to it , disconnect and reconnect the DV cable. If the problem persists, take the following actions.
(2-1) Disconnect the DV cable from the camcorder and the computer, and then turn off the camcorder and the computer.
(2-2) Turn the camcorder and the computer back on and then reconnect them with the DV cable.
(3) Your camera cannot be used with DV NETWORK SOFTWARE (DV Messenger).
