I have a Panasonic PV-GS39 and want to put my movies onto computer that's running on windows 7. Using the USB cable doesn't work. Will the firewire cable really work or am I just out of luck? Thanks for...


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

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Whether this will work with Windows 7, I am not sure. My Mini-DV camera, using a Firewire cable, didn't need any camera driver loaded to the computer, just the movie editor that came with Windows XP.

How to transfer PV-L780D panasonic camcorder video to PC.


For your SD card, you have to use the USB port to mini-USB port cable that came with the camera, or a card reader. Connect it to the computer, and turn the camera on. Windows XP and Windows 7 will detect it as a hard drive, and give you the options for transferring the pictures to your pc. You also have a firewall cable that you can use with the software that came with the camera. In case you need more information, you can download the manual that will tell you how here:

usb won't work for video-you need to purchase a firewirecable to stream video from a mini dv camcorder-always a 4 pin connection on cam side-can be 4 or 6 on computer end-4 on laptops and sonys-6 on macs and desktops-usb is only for still pics or to use as a webcam
