I actually have the original IM3 CD but my CD and DVD drives for some reason are not working (another problem, ugh!). I was having problems with IM3 so I uninstalled it and was planning on re-installing it but ran into the "other problem" above. Same as everyone else, I can only find the update (which I think was just for Vista). I run XP, SP2. So what would anyone recommend as an alternative to IM3? I heard someone say Nero, but I think that may be a problem with Panasonic file format or something.

The company upgrades original software for new computer operating systems, but does not provide downloads of their software. My solution was to purchase a second camcorder for parts that included the original software. I may have to purchase a third camera because of a malfunctioning disc assembly on both my camcorders.
It seems to be a problem with the DVD drive's lens cleaner,
I would recommend you to :-
Get a lens cleaner from the market which would come cheap , and run it as per the instructions for some time in your drive.
After you have had your lens cleaner run in your drive for sometime , take it out and insert any DVD that you would like to play or run.
If the DVD runs , then it was a problem with your lens , as dirt has accumulated on it , and hence it was not able to read DVDs.
If the above method does not work , then you need to get your DVD drive first checked via an external IDE device connector , in case you are using a desktop pc , with an IDE DVD drive.
Or an alternate way would be to check it in your friend's computer , if it's working fine then you have some problem with your operating system which is not able to read the CD.
If still your DVD drive is unable to read DVDs then you need to get a replacement from the service center , in case it's under warranty, if not ,you can either get it repaired , and check if it's affordable by comparing it to the price of a new DVD reader(RAM)/writer(RW) in the market.
If you feel that the repair work would cost you almost the same as a new DVD writer or reader , I would recommend you to go for the new one.
Hope this helps ..:). Your feedback would be appreciated
Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.
1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on). 2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device. 3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV. 4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture. 5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode. 6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam. 7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture. 8.Start your editing work. 9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.
beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that
should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but
effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.
BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.
If your computer came with a CD/DVD drive, it should also have the software to pay a DVD. Just put one in and try.
If it can't read the DVD, it probably isn't a CD/DVD drive and you will have to get a new drive to play them. If your drive says CD/DVD on the drawer itself, you should be able to go to the manufacture's website of your PC and download a driver. You can also download software like Intervideo to decode and play DVDs.
In order to transfer your videos to DVD, your computer must be equipped with a DVD Burner and you must use the software provided with the burner. Contact your computer manufacturer for further assistance.
If your computer is equipped with a CD burner, you can transfer the video to a CD after you've converted the video to AVI or MPEG format. Playback of the CD will be limited to computers and possibly DVD players that support those formats.
