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.

How to download data from my camera to pc, i dont have download software


DEAR SIR,

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer can be done by two means....

1.INSTALL THE SOFTWARE C.D GIVEN ALONG WITH THE CAMERA IN YOUR NOTE BOOK....
THEN SWITCH ON YOUR CAMERA AND CONNECT THE CAMERA TO YOUR P.C VIA U.S.B CABLE,AND WAIT FOR FEW SECONDS FOR THE P.C TO DETECT YOUR CAMERA,ONCE THE CAMERA IS DETECTED IT WILL ASK YOU,WHETHER TO COPY YOUR CAMERA IMAGES TO YOUR P.C
AND JUST CLICKOK...YOUR FLES ARE BEING COPIED.......MAKE SURE YOU HAVE KEPT YOUR CAMERA ON WHILE CONNECTING TO NOTEBOOK...

if you dont have cd,kindly download by clicking the below link and select model and the needed drivers

2..Remove 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.


thank you...take care

How do you get images onto the computer from the memory stick or print pictures


You should be able to use a USB cable to connect the device to a computer, or take the memory stick from the device and use an adapter with your computer to access it like a flash drive or external hard drive. If you are using an SDHC memory card, you must buy a SDHC compatible adapter and meet the criteria for the adapter.

Connection


A digital video camera may be connected to a computer using an optional OHCI compatible, digital video capture kit available commercially. These kits must be capable of using the IEEE1394 (FireWire) interface to enable you to import digital video signal and still images into your computer. For those models equipped with a separate USB port, the camcorder may also be connected to a computer via its mini-B USB port, for downloading still images recorded on the SD/MMC card.
