Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lumix movie viewing

Thanks for posting your solution. I did finally download the Quick Time player and can view my movies on the computer. I wanted to ask you about putting them on DVD as I have a burner on my computer. Is this possible? I would like to be able to make my movies portable so that I can play them on my regular DVD player on the television.

My guess the full, not free, version of QuickTime would do this for you. Check it out by going to their website and review full version capability. A google search of 'quicktime DVD movie making' might get you advice from actual users.

You can save money if you buy an earlier used version on Ebay that still has DVD movie making and that will work with your Win OS version.

After downloading movies to the computer they were lost and wiped clean from the sd card. after finally finding the movies on the computer we managed to find a way to play them but with no sound! Please...


OK, here's a suggestion. First, create a folder for the movie on your desktop. Then, remove the card from the camera, insert it into a separate card reader and plug the card reader into a USB port on your computer. When it opens, drag and drop the movie files to the new folder. Use "safely remove hardware" function to remove the cardreader. Now, your card still has the movies on it and they are also on your computer. You can send them to whatever program you use on your computer to view or edit them. Quicktime, a free movie viewer from apple.com is a good choice to view them. typrice_219.jpg

How to view movies on PC after downloading the movie on my PC how do i then view the movie ?


Right-click on the movie and choose the player you want to open it with. You may need to download one if you don't already have one on your computer. Quicktime is a good choice...it's a free download at apple.com.

No sound in recording videos


Do you mean in your camera or on your computer. If on your computer Google K-Lite. Hear you can download the codec drivers to update your computer to view and hear the movies you record.

When I download from my camera to my computer, the videos only appear as images, and I can't play them.


for example, if you capture a video with your camera, it automatically creates 2 files: a thumbnail = a picture, and the movie. You're probably trying to view the thumbnail. Check the extensions of the files for those with .mp4 or .mov, those are the movies. These can be played with Quicktime or other players.

Video playback problem on lumix dmc tz3


I don't have a solution to the first part of your dilemma (why it won't playback) but I do have a solution for deleting the file.  On your camera are "hidden" file folders.  When you connect your camera to your computer, you probably only see two folders (that's all I see for my DMC-LZ8).  But there are more, and your undeletable picture/video is in one of these folders.  Find the folder and you'll find the file.  Delete it from your camera using the computer to do the command.  Problem solved.  Okay, so how do you find the hidden folders?  I have a Mac, so my process was this:  1) Connect camera to computer; 2) Select/open camera icon (looks like "volume disk"); 3) From top Finder bar, select File then Find;  4) Select the camera volume to limit your search to the camera (not HD or other external hard drives you may have connected to your computer); 5) Select "Kind" and in the next dropdown button "Folders".  Voila.  Happy searching.  My hidden "undeletable" video files were in a folder called "100_PANA".  I selected them then moved them to the Trash.  Be sure to eject your camera properly (don't just turn it off or disconnect it).
Good luck.  I hope this helps.
PS - My theory is that this occurred after an upload to my computer got unexpectedly disconnected before everything finished loading or else the camera got disconnected from the computer incorrectly even if the upload had already finished (see above comment to eject camera properly).  In either case, the blank/black screen, unviewable but "there" on the camera taking up memory photos/videos problem happened to me, too.  The above actions resolved it for me.

Cannot view the movies I made on my camera and downloaded to my Vista PC


I assume you can view them in you camera, right? If not, the following solution will not help.

The .MOV Apple QuickTime format Panasonic uses for its camera movie clips cause problem on with viewing, as seen from several other problem posts here and the net.

Some computer use a Win 32Bit operating system, other better ones use a Win 64. It is hard to believe QuickTime would let you load a 64bit version into a 32bit OS, or vice versa. But who knows. Rather double clicking on te file name itself, open QuickTime, then go to File Open and Browse to the file and select it that was. If this doesn't work, go to QuickTime website and try their User Forums first to ask a question or find a thread talking about movie files not playing. Else, CONTACT website and ask question. Post any solution here for readers.
