Panasonic PV-Gs85 importing issues

Hey guys, I was wondering if one of you could help me out.
I'm running Windows Vista home and I have my camcorder hocked up to my computer via a fire wire cable and when I go to import the video I just get a back screen and nothings happening. Any ideas?

You will have to buy a dazzle to download your video from a PV-GS85 because there is no plans to make it Vista or Wnds 7 compatible. You can then plug your cams av cables into the dazzle and the dazzle plugs in to your computer via usb-2.0 and turns the analog signal from cam into digital from the dazzle into your computer to do what you like with.

Yes, the XP driver would not work with Vista. No solution on the Panasonic website.

You will need to capture using a firewire cable.
If you are using a firewire cable and it does not work try another brand of cable as some have a reputation for not handling DV capture.

In my experience, your recorded video is in mod or mts format. No matter what, these HD formats cant be accepted by your imovie. U have to convert these hd formats to mov or mp4 imovie can accept.
I always use Pavtube HD Converter which can help me convert these hd formats to mov to use in my imovie. It is easy to use with high output quality.
U can have a try.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.

PV-GS31 often disconnects from vista


I called Panasonic directly today & asked about the Vista driver for the GS31. No such driver exists, but they are trying to develop a driver specifically for Vista users of this camcorder. Finally the mystery is correctly answered & solved for us Vista owners! woooohooo !
