Many video clips recorded by GZ-MG130 were stored in my old laptop (windows XP) and played well in with windows media player. 1)I have now transferred them to my new laptop ...


Hi Rajeeva.

To start try downloading updated codecs for Windows Media player, and install them onto the new laptop.

Use this link to download updated codes:Free-Codecs.com :: Download latest audio codecs

If that is not enough also update Windows Media Player on the new laptop. Link is below.

Windows Media Player 11.

Updating codecs should fix the problem already.

Upgraded the sony software to vista version but dvd camcorder is not rcognied when i connect to pc via usb

Click on the link above and select the new vista OS you are using to download the drivers for the vista.

The camcorder did not work because the drivers you were having must have been for windows XP.

So download the drivers for vista and this will help.

Windows Vista will not let Windows Movie Maker import/edit videos


I would look for a more recent driver on the Samsung support website specifically for  Vista; it apparently does not have the right (or any) driver to permit it to work with your DVD camcorder. I don't think any of your hardware, computer or camcorder is dysfunctional, Windows just has to know how to communicate with it.
What you might try first is to have the camcorder connected (USB I assume) and reboot your PC. If Win can see it at all, you should get a screen message that it has found new hardware.  If it has some basic driver on hand, the message might state 'installing software for your device.'

Connect to laptop using vista ultimate and firewire


I checked on Panasonics USA support website and neither of these two model numbers appear.

Here is the link to the support page:

There is a phone number to Panasonic support on this page as well as the international link if they were purchased outside the US.

You will need to contact Hitachi to fix this one. The camcorder driver will probably work in Windows XP but not in Vista.

JVC GR-DVL310 VISTA DRIVER


Your JVC is a MiniDV camcorder, which uses a Firewire connection for capture. Firewire drivers are standard for all DV camcorders, and built-in on every version of Windows since about Windows 98SE (well, they didn't work very well until Windows 2000).

You still need a capture application to complete the transfer. Most (maybe all) versions of Windows comes with Windows Movie Maker, which is a very basic program, but it can do this.

Normally, a DV camcoder can't be detected by Windows until you have it connected via Firewire, and have it the appropriate mode. On some cameras, this can be play or record (the latter would tranfer live video, or allow recording TO the camera), on others, you need to set the camera to a "link to PC" mode. I currently own Sony and Canon camcorders that both work in the former way, but my first DV camcorder was a JVC, and it did have to put in a "link to PC" mode to be detected by the computer. If you can't find the setting, you might want to check your user manual.

For still photos, it looks like you use a USB connection. I haven't found all the details on this camcorder, but this is likely to be a normal USB "storage class" connection. If so, your camcorder would show up like a disc drive, and you can drag photos over. Vista will support this by default, too.

The other way some older camcorders send photos is to appear to the system as a USB scanner type device. You would need a device driver for this, from JVC.

The user manual would be helpful here. You can get one via download if you don't have it:

Um... this is a DVD camcorder, right. What are you expected a camcorder driver to do for you? Just put the DVD into the computer.

If you're after USB drivers for the still mode, those should only be necessary on older OSs.... Windows XP and Vista had built-in drivers for USB storage-class devices.

It's quite possible some of the applications (basic video editor, I don't know what else they might ship with the camcorder) don't work under Vista. Samsung doesn't have any software updates posted for this camcorder, and I wouldn't hold my breath... CE companies aren't likely to support products in the way you might be used to from computer companies. Given that you have Vista, you can probably import and edit video using Windows Movie Maker.
