Question about Panasonic Palmcorder VDR-M50 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic vdr-50 comes with software that you MUST use to move your video from the dvd to your PC. It saves it as a gigantic mpeg. Problem with the software is - it's junk. No simple function such as file > save as> mpeg4. Mpeg4 being the online standard for blogs uploads and Youtube you would think that panasonic would have provided an option like this. Next problem panasonics support site is also junk. This video camera is going back to bestbuy. Now what should I buy? I dont want any special software that I have to use. Just - Record it > intialize it> Put in DVD drive> Play it. Plain and simple please.

I do not use panasonic software, it useless.
I inserted (RAM or Finalized disk) onto the PC
and used convertxtodvd (software) to convert VRO to (DVD-VOB) (no problems)
I used dvd shrink to combine multiple 30minutes disks onto a single dvd. I reformatted the RAM disk for future use
I have to agree that vdr-50 is a piece of junk.
Many time it got Data Error or CRC error, is like random.
The battery life shorten very fast even is a 6 hours battery
, do not know why , no help from Tech Support

Panasonic vdr-m50 software cd


Possible solution but I'm not sure. Don't know enough about video files, etc. Does someone know more? Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder original software won't work on vista PCs. This freeware might work. Please, someone check it out:

WinISO a good program.
