That's not uncommon especially if it is a kodak. Cameras that usually don't have a usb port can only be downloaded with a docking station or by taking out the media card and putting it in the media card reader.

On another small note. Some cameras have like little compartments with the usb connection in it. Double check to see if anywhere on the camera has a usb symbol. It is very small and hard to see at times

Downloading pictures to my computer though a USB port


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Hi .. i have PV-GS15 camera and i want to copy the video to my computer how can i do it .. and i don't have software of panasonic PV-GS15


The camera connects to a computer through firewire, which is a port similar to USB. You can try transferring pictures to a computer that does have firewire, which is most macs and some desktop PCs, or you can purchase a USB to firewire converter.

I weould try using an Extgernal Drive with both USB and Firewire ports. Connect the camera to the firewire port and the USB port on the external drive to the computer. Not the most elegant solution but will most likely work.
If your computer has facility to add a firewire BUS then you could add one. Usually a blank port called express card 34.

This is a Firewire cable, also known as DV or IEEE 1394. Sony call it i.Link. It is not compatible with USB and you cannot get a lead to connect it to a USB port. There are converter/adapters that are supposed to allow Firewire to connect to USB but many forum posts say they do NOT work for video transfer. Unfortunately, most Mini-DV cameras will not transfer video by USB cable, even when they have a USB connection (it is usually only used for still pictures).

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. If you had a desktop PC, you could fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the expansion bus. This will come with a driver for the card.

I have a Samsung Mini-DV, and do transfers with it to the one computer I have that has a Firewire port. It is the only thing I use that computer for, and the reason I haven't thrown it out.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

Lucy,
This camera doesn't have a USB port - you must use a firewire port.

The USB port on the camera is to download still pics from the Camera's SD Card to your computer. USB connector is not for video downloading.

For video downloading you have to use FireWire port. Your computer must have a FireWire port too. You will need some sort of video downloading software - like Microsoft's MovieMaker. There are some free software to download videos from mini dv camcorders to computer. It takes 1Hr to download 1Hr tape - you have to play it all to record it all.

3yrs ago when I purchased this cam, I did not have FireWire port in my computer. I searched online a lot and found a way to download video using USB - it was tough, complicated. It was possible, but quality was too bad and too many dropped frames.

If you do not have firewire port, google for FireWire PCI Card, should be <$10. You have to install it inside your PC. Also search for FireWire cable ($10+/-) that will match BOTH camera and PC ports.

Thank you.
