Hi, I hope you can help me. I have a Panasonic PV-DV953D plamcorder. I installed all the software and the USB driver but I still cannot transfer or download the video to my pc. I tried it both on two pc's, one with windows xp and the other with vista. I tried the muvee auto producer with the xp and the windows movie maker with the vista. Both programs do not recognize or connect through the USB connection.

    This did not help. And why do I have to reinstall the USB driver every time I plug it in?

This is what you can do.

1) You can download & upload movie thru Firewire on miniDV tape.
2) You can take MPEG4 video on SD card only.
3) You can download & upload still picture and MPEG4 thru USB.

You use firewire (iLink) to access miniDV tape.
You use USB to access SD card and web video thing.

DV953 (MX5000/500) is very high end camcorder. They can do almost everything that most of camcorder do.

Just don't expect too much for MPEG4 video.
Try this option also you have to use firewire(DV) cable and DV input in your computer to import video to PC at least .


Hope this may help;

Hi...
I was in the same problem, I tryed a lots of step.
But a called customer service.

And they told me. with the USB cable is possible only transfer
Pictures. No videos from a MINIDV camcorder...
The Way that you can Transfer is using a Home DVD recorder.
Connecting the RCA cables at the DVD recorder you can tranfer to a DVD DISK.
Or at the same way to a VCR.

But you can get a VIDEO TRANSFER KIT. on any Office suply.
IS a little box connected at the Computer by USB. with a RCA INPUT to connect the VIDEO Camcorder.

I hope this help on your question. Thank's.

Did you put the camcorder in the VCR mode and make sure it is turned on, so you can transfer the video?

Hi, I have a panasonic pv-gs80 video cam and I would like to save my movies on my e-machine p c. What cables and software do I need? thanks Tim E-Mail timjune@sbcglobal.net


If you don't want to spend a lot of money you could use Corel VideoStudio. As for cables, your camera should have come with a USB 2.0 cable that would connect to the camera and then to the USB port on the PC. Or, if your pc has a firewire port, you could buy that cable to connect for a faster video transfere and capture. Hope this helps.

How to transfer PV-L780D panasonic camcorder video to PC.


For your SD card, you have to use the USB port to mini-USB port cable that came with the camera, or a card reader. Connect it to the computer, and turn the camera on. Windows XP and Windows 7 will detect it as a hard drive, and give you the options for transferring the pictures to your pc. You also have a firewall cable that you can use with the software that came with the camera. In case you need more information, you can download the manual that will tell you how here:

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.

Palmcorder


You shouldn't. The PV-DV203 means it is one of Panasonic's MiniDV, digital cancorders. You should only need the cable(s) supplied with the camera, and either a FireWire or USB port available on your computer. Windows Movie Maker should be able to download the video and allow you to edit it.
