    In the end, I had to buy HDWriter 2.5. I had believed that the MPEG soundtrack bug in 2.0 had beeen fixed but I am getting a transcribed MPEG without a soundtrack. Anyone have similar problems or solutions?

    Just received a response from the Panasonic Technical Support:

    "Thank you for your response. We recommend converting the file and using a different software program to do any editing, if the HD Writer is not fitting your needs."

    What sort of company is it?

    I bought a SD5 , and I have the same problem with sound on my editing software... I also cannot install my SD writer software onto my brand new Acer Aspire XP sp3 laptop.
    I would like to know where to download the new version, and also which alternative software one could use.

I have a Panasonic HDC-SD5 camera and it doesn't work on I-Mac. The Mac can't read the files. What should I do to work with it on I movie ? Is there any driver for the mac ?

HDC-SD5 + iMac = perfect compatibility
I have an iMac (early 2011).-I remove the SDHC card from the camera-plug the card directly into the iMac SD slot (Below the CD/DVD slot) -wait 5 seconds till iMovie or Final Cut X download high-quality HD video.
I was digitizing video on a Mac IIx back in the late 1980's, a long, tiresome error-ridden process that only just worked.The tools we have today are brilliant.Anybody wanting to do serious or hobby video on a computer needs one of Steve Jobs' babies.No downloads of drivers, no conversions, no installation.Just plug 'n play.
Hope this helps

Do you have to drop the tank to change the fuel pump on 93 plymouth voyager or is there a way from the top?

Yes the tank must be removed

Fuel Pump: Service and Repair
WARNING: The fuel system is under constant pressure, even when the engine is OFF. Always release fuel pressure before servicing any fuel
system component.
1. Release fuel system pressure.
2. Fuel tank must be removed prior to fuel pump service.
3. Using a hammer and a brass drift, carefully tap the fuel pump lock-ring counter-clockwise to release the fuel pump.
4. Remove the fuel pump and its O-ring from the fuel tank, and discard the old O-ring.
5. Cover tank openings to prevent dirt from entering system.
1. Gently bend the sending unit locking tabs away from the sending unit.
2. Remove the electrical connector cover (red). Remove the sending unit wires from the electrical connector.
3. Use one screwdriver to push on the fuel pump body, and use another to release the sending unit locking tab from the sending unit.
4. Slide the sending unit assembly off of the fuel pump reservoir housing.
5. Pull the wires through the reservoir body and fuel pump cover plate.
1. Bend the sending unit wires and lay them into the slot on the back of the sending unit.
2. Slide the sending unit into the slots on the fuel pump reservoir body. Slide the wires through the triangle shaped hole in the fuel pump reservoir
body. Check that the tab in the fuel sending unit locks into the detent in the fuel pump reservoir body.
3. Slip the wires onto the tab of the fuel pump reservoir body.
4. Slide the sending unit wire terminals into the electrical connector. Install the terminal locking cover.
5. Slide the fuel sending unit electrical connector into the bottom of the fuel pump electrical connector. Check that the connectors are securely
attached and fully pushed into each other.
1. Wipe seal area of tank clean, and install a new O-ring seal on pump.
2. Position fuel pump module in tank and secure with the lock-ring.
3. Using a hammer and a brass drift, carefully tap the fuel pump lock-ring clockwise to lock the module in place.
NOTE: Do not overtighten the lock-ring, because the fuel pump seal could split and leak.
4. Install fuel tank assembly.
NOTE: ASD and fuel pump relays remain energized for 7 minutes during the following test, unless the test is stopped or the ignition switch is
turned to the OFF position.
5. Using scan tool, place ignition switch in "RUN" position and use Actuate Output Test "Auto Shutdown (ASD) Relay", to activate fuel pump and

HD writer will not write to disc

I just used HDWriter today to copy a film I took from a new Panasonic HDC-HS250K to DVD. It took about 30 minutes to complete, and the movie was only 1 Gb; about 5-10 minutes of HD. I used a Memorex DVD+R that I happen to have from a couple years ago. The video looks very good played back on my PC or HD TV using a regular DVD player (not blue ray). I don't happen to have any other DVD except for the 2 sided which I hate to use for the short videos. So in looking to buy some more I'm concerned that DVD-R might not work so well. I've read some conflicting reviews about that. Anyway just wanted to let you know that the DVD+R worked fine.

Problems downloading onto Macintosh

Can you not remove the memory card from the camera and read the data on a cheap USB card reader? You don't need any special software to do this.

good luck.
