Where i can download usb drivers for gz-hm30bu ?


You dont need drivers for this camera to connect to a PC. The Everio HDD cameras use their own file format called .MOD which, in the first instance can only be used by the supplied software. The way the cameras connect to computer is via a USB2 connection.

When the camera is connected to a computer the computer will only see an extra hard disk drive or "Removable Disk" just in the same way as it would if you connect a USB memorystick etc. This is the cameras built in hard disk drive and you can copy and paste from that drive to your computer. For the video files you need to look in the folders on your new "Removable Disk" (or "Everio HDD...." if you have the 21/26/36 etc 2006 range) called SD Video. Inside the SD Video folder you are looking for folders starting with "PRG" and depending on how much video you have taken you may have a few (PRG001, PRG002 and so on).

To save time i would highlight the whole PRG folders, right and click on the folders and copy them to a new folder on your PC. Make sure to give the new folder a memorable name and remember where it is.

Then, with the supplied software, if you want to do some video editing you start the hopfully installed Cyberlink PowerDirector. This program will open in the edit mode. You then click on "FILE" at the top of the screen, drag you mouse down to "IMPORT" and drag your mouse slightly to the right to "Media Folder".

You then need to find the new folder you made with the copied "PRG" folders from your camera, select "OPEN" once you have found your folder and it will import the videos from that folder into the PowerDirector program. You can then drag the images to the timeline in that program to playback or edit.

The other program supplied with the Everio cameras is Cyberlink PowerProducer. This program is for burning DVDs of the video files. The principles are the same where once you have set up the type of movie you want to produce (DVD, VideoCD etc) you can then import the .MOD files directly into the program and burn DVD that will play on normal DVD players.

Help with samsung dvd dx 103


Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Your camcorder records videos in MPEG2 format. You need that codec installed in your pc to play the videos. You can find that here.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

If you can play the DVD disc on your computer you will be able to transfer footage and edit it.

Put the DVD disc into your PC's DVD drive, then

1. Select 'start'
2.
Select 'My Computer'
3.
Find your PC's DVD drive in the display of devices shown, right click on it, then left click on 'Explore' in the drop down list.
4. Copy all the files you see shown with the 'Explore' option to a folder on your hard drive.

You can now use the software you normally use to edit the files you've just transfered to your hard drive.

Transfering Videos to my computer?


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.

DVD-RWs can be initialised in either VIDEO mode or in VR mode. In your case you have initialised the disc in VR mode - hence the .VRO file extension.

VR mode allows you to edit the disc on the camcorder and is a newer format than VIDEO mode, which is the format used in most films, and which most DVD players 'understand'. VIDEO format cannot be edited on the camcorder, and can be edited on a PC. A VIDEO mode disc has to be finalised before you can use it on a PC.

Use VIDEO mode if you want to upload your video to a PC.

HOW TO GET OUR VIDEOS FROM THE CAMERA ON TO THE PC


When you format the disk before recording, make sure you format in VIDEO MODE. Once you have recorded, finalize disk. After you place the disk into your computer, open up the folder of the disk. You should see your clips with the extension .VOB;
right click to copy the clip to your desktop. Right-click on the copied file and rename the VOB extension to MPEG. It will warn you that the file might become unusable, but it works everytime. VOB files are Mpeg files. Now you can import into any editing software. Goodluck.
