SOURCE: Transfering 8mm video tapes to dvds

Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

its a comon problem i have seen it time and time again on the net if you take it any wee to get fixed they will just tell yo to bin it as they can not be fixed pluss if you foundsomeone who could fix it witch i verry much doubt it will cost more than the camera is worth . The only thing i can advise is to put on ebay for charger battery/s screen and were you put the tape and try an get as much as you can by doing it that way but thats the only way we are going to get some cash back of your camera so give it a wirl thanks paul

SOURCE: Can't transfer videos to dvd with my Panasonic SDR H40P

Apparently the software that Panasonic sent with my video camera is not compatible with Windows XP Service Pack 3. The solution is spending $79 on another software. Not happy about it, but grateful for your exper that helped me get this resolved. Thanks.

The driver is incompadible with Windows 7
Lexmark, Sony, & many others have the same problem
Why Windows 7 has this problem? A new programming causes this and it started with the Vista operating sytem before hand
What did Microsoft tell you? Wait for updates from Canon? That is the most likely answer they give everyone I understand

A CD is the wrong thing anyway movies should only be burnt on DVD, then asking it to take more than an hours worth of movie is the max to put on unless you use compression.

Connecting to computer


i don't know if this a great solution. anytime i tried to port video from the camera to the computer(vista), i couldn't get it to work. i bought a dazzle, but sorry folks i think it's junk. take video, stills and DV to memory stick then read it from there. it works great. i spent alot of time trying diffrent ways and this way is the best. pull you're dvd's from there too. one more thing- lightscribe and label flash are extremely over rated.

About transfering video from the tape into PC


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}Yes, it is something to do with Firewire. I managed to dothis with my Canon MV750i so I know it can be done!

You are correct; the USB cable only transfers pictures from the SD card. To transfer video from your camcorder to a computer you need to use a Firewirecable (also known as IEEE 1394), and you need to have a socket on your computerto plug the Firewire cable into. Macs already have a socket built in butgenerally with PCs you will need to install (or get someone to install for you)a special card with the Firewire socket on it.

I can't explain the whole procedure here but you can getstarted by looking at the following articles on the Canon website. Thefirst one explains what sort of connections can be made on different Canoncamcorders (including the MV730i) and what you can do with them:
http://www.canon.co.nz/products/digital_video_cameras/home/mv730i.aspx

The second briefly explains what hardware and software youwill need, how it goes together, how to make DVDs and so on:

Unfortunately there is no quick, simple answer but I hope thispoints you in the right direction!

Transfering Videos to my computer?


Ok, I'm no expert when it comes to burning DVD media but if you're using Nero you should be able to just drag all the files you copied onto your pc into a Nero window.

Start Nero, open up a burn DVD movie window and drag the files into it. You ought to be able to fit 4 hours onto one disk but check the bar near the bottom to make sure.

As I said, my expertise really lies with hardware and operating systems so if this doesn't work for you post the problem again and somebody will be able to help you further.

How Do I Transfer My Videos To DVD?


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.
