All I want to do is transfer my videos to my hard drive so I can burn them onto regular DVDs. I installed all the software and drivers, but my computer still will not recognize my camera. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Please Help!

You will require a firewire cable.
Usually a 4 pin to 6 pin cable. 4 pin to camera 6 pin to computer, assuming you PC has a fireiwre socket.
PC computer have Movie Maker as part of the OS.
Connect with the above cable and you should be good to go.
Same problem as everyone that probably has one of these cameras and not the exact computer the software was designed to run on.I got NERO DVD burn software and am now able to see the camera hard drive and recognize my videos.I have Windows XP but as long as you get the right NERO software your troubles will probably be forgotten.After learning of doing it like this I'm really glad the Panasonic software didn't work because I'm sure I have a much better handle on how I want my videos burned to DVD.
I do not use panasonic software, it useless.
I inserted (RAM or Finalized disk) onto the PC
and used convertxtodvd (software) to convert VRO to (DVD-VOB) (no problems)
I used dvd shrink to combine multiple 30minutes disks onto a single dvd. I reformatted the RAM disk for future use
I have to agree that vdr-50 is a piece of junk.
Many time it got Data Error or CRC error, is like random.
The battery life shorten very fast even is a 6 hours battery
, do not know why , no help from Tech Support
Sounds like you have conflicting file associations, which means that some types of files open in one player and others in another. However, this isn't your main problem.
To play the DVD file on the pc you need to have the .ifo, .vob and the .bup files in the same directory as well as the video_ts files etc. Easiest way to do it is to copy ALL of the files from each disk to a folder on the pc, then you can play them from there and format your disks ready to be re-used.
If you'd like further help with converting the format and sorting out your file associations please post again but the above information should cure your immediate problem.
In order to burn a DVD you need to use the 1394 interface. If you use the USB interface then you have the option to only burn VCD. However, i could not even burn the VCD using the USB interface. It refuses to recognize that there is a new CD-R in the PC.
