Question about Video Cameras

Panasonic SDR-H200 30GB 3C MOD Files

I ,like many others on the internet bought this camera and have yet to find a software that will convert the .MOD files created by the camera to something I can use in Windows Movie Maker.

So now I am ready to purchase a software that will let a beginner take video off my hard drive camera in MOD format and create a simple time line video by converting the files or using them in that format.

I would like to be able to edit the files, modify and add music to the video similar to Window Movie Maker.

Can you recommend a software that will do this.

Thanks in advance for your help,

    Yeah, this camera appears to take great shots, but it seems next to impossible to edit the footage.  The program that came with the camera is not very user friendly.

  • JFaucette Jun 23, 2008

    By renaming the file yes you can view it and play it, but WMM will not recognize due to some missing codecs.



    It's hard to believe no one at the geek squad can help me with this one.

  • diy_ft May 11, 2010

    i have yet to find one. renaming the file might let you play them in WMP but it won't let you import them in movie maker.

Looking for software for the panasonic SDR-H250GC-s that will read the *.MOD extention and burn the movies to DVD


Hi ,
I think the best solution is to first transfer your MOD files to your pc and convert them there to MPEG 2 .
You will find an excellent and free tool for this here : http://www.mediafire.com/?wzmigzhjj0z
It's called SDCopy and has especially been designed for the Panassonic cameras with HDD or SD cards .
Once your files are converted , you can use any sofware you want to edit your movie and burn it on dvd .
From my point of vue , Cyberlink Power Director is the best but there are many others on the market .
Thanks for using FixYa .
