Question about Panasonic NV-GS21EG-S Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

PANASONIC NV-GS21 Camcorder. There is no tape in the camcorder, but there is an SD card. When trying to record, it says that there is no tape - so I'm assuming I HAVE to have a tape to record. If I switch on the camcorder without trying to record, it says 'card error'\r\nHELP please. It is not full, and it has software on the SD card. I bought this second hand. No wires, no manual.

You will need a firewire card in your PC and firewire cable to connect your camera to the PC. you will also need a software like Windows movie maker which can help you to transfer videos from your camera to the PC.

The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

SOURCE: Lost driver software for Panasonic NV-MX500 Camcorder.

OMG, took me forever to find the driver, contacted the support centre who told me I had to pay $25 just to get it on CD

Finally found it by doing a 'round-a-bout' search

http://www.panasonic.co.uk
navigate to support and downloads then type in "NVMX" and select 'software driver' scroll down the page till you come to NVMX50. Should be two downloads there, one the driver the other the audio update.

After installing this on my new dell pc, it was able to identify the camera and webcam... HOWEVER although I can get webcam to work via messenger, my mic is no longer working??? even after the audio update so go figure??? I use to be able to use the mic on skype before downloading this... what a pain

When I use different SD cards it says Card Error or Incorrect Operation? Tried to format or delet the files of the card but couldn't. It's a cam recorder nv-gs50


Check with the instruction manual for the camcorder which type and capacity SD cards it will "support" and use only the specified cards. The camera will reject any card with a greater Gb capacity than it's system can support.
The more recent your camera the greater card memory capacity will be supported.
