You dont need a software. I just plugged the camcorder to the wall socket and clicked on the option PC CONNECT in the camcorder which comes automatically when you plug in. In 'my computer' go to removable device and copy the files and open with windows media player. Anymore problem. Email me :

SOURCE: SDR S7 panasonic camcorder... lost installation disc

The best solution is to get a replacement CD from Panasonic at
They may replace the CD at a reasonable cost (or free plus S&H). Otherwise they can suggest other editing software that can upload your recordings to the PC.

How to Save a Movie From a Panasonic NV-GS11 Video Camera to a PC

I bought my Panasonic NV-GS11 video camera from eBay and for the cost, it seemed perfect. I liked the feel of the camera, it's simplicity of use, until I tried to transfer my movie to a PC and that's when the trouble started!
Normally, when you connect a camera using the USB connection, your PC recognises the device and you can use it straight away. I had no end of problems getting the PC to do this and I thought the driver was at fault.
The answer, in hindsight, is that in the menu there are 2 items for the USB Function, "web camera" and "DV Studio" - the software for acquiring still photos from the camera. Choose "web camera", connect your camera to the PC via the USB connection and switch on the camera using the Playback mode. Check "My Computer" and there should be a video camera icon with "USB Video Device" beside it. Double click onto this icon will open up a page, where if you start your movie from the camera, you can see the results on the PC screen. Unfortunately, there's nowhere on this page where you can save the movie itself.
I searched with Google and found the answer. Many people had the same issue but there didn't seem to any answers. Eventually, I found one reply on a forum way down the page which provided the solution.
Download Windows Movie Maker from the Microsoft page. This is for Windows XP:-
Open Movie Maker and you will see " Capture from video device" This allows you to save your movie into a directory of your choice and later burn the movie onto a CD using your favourite software.

How do i edit using motionsd studio 1.3e?

I had much the same issues with my Motion SD Studio manual...pretty much useless. On screen help? Forget won't find it. Again..useless.
So the only way I learned to use it was by just digging in and doing it. Once you have it figured out, it really isn't that bad to use. Although it is rather basic as far as editing goes. I quickly outgrew the program and now use Magix Movie Edit Pro 14...MUCH more versatile! But I still need Motion SD to load the files into the computer and render them into the proper format for MEP.

SO the first thing you want to do is load your video clip into the computer. Make sure your power cord is connected to the camera. Then connect the USB cable th the cam and computer. The camera will ask you if you want it to be ""pict-brigge or as a USB drive. Choose USB drive. Cancel out of the window that pops up.
Now start your Motion SD studio software. In a few seconds a box will appear asking you what to do. Yo want to upload files from the camera. Pick this option and a new windoe opens up displaying the videos in your camera on the left and a preview screen on the right. Simply highlight the clips you want to inport and then click the "import" button below the preview screen. This process may take some time depending on the length and number of clips you import.
Once importing is complete, it will ask you if you want to edit the images. Hit YES anf the edit window will open up.
Then drag your clips tio the timeline and begin editing.

I hope this is helpful to anyone having trouble getting thingd going with this software. Remember, I had to learn this on my own due to insufficient manuals and a lack of online help. I can offer further assistance if anyone might need it.

Panasonic PV-GS19 I canĀ“t download video to pC

MOTION DV STUDIO should work. I can't find the "free" smaller version and have lost the disc that came with cam that had it. Panasonic does not support this cams donwloads on their site. I can only find the for sale versions of MOTION DV STUDIO. I am having the same d*mn problem. I have a PC with Xp with a number of built in editing programs that should be able to capture from firewire and recognize this connection. This cams USB connection captures bad video artifacts during transfer. The only other solution which I can think of is to use a SVHS serial to mini cord (?). I can't find one of these for sale anywhere...if they exist. Any other people having this problem and have solved it without buying a full version of MOTION DV STUDIO? If anyone can upload the free version of basic MOTION DV STUDIO for us to download, that would be awesome. Btw- my laptop will not recognize the firewire connection from the DV camcorder no matter what I try within the hardware connection UI, etc.
