Question about Panasonic SDR-H18 USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a Panasonic SDR H18 video camera. My kids were trying to download some video to our computer but needed to power it. They didn't know what to use and ended up using a computer powercord which has an output of 18.5V (versus the 7.9V of the adaptor). It now will not power on. I'm wondering what the chances are that we could recover any of the data from the hard drive. Is it likely to be completely fried?

You may be able to recover what is on the hard drive, the power supply voltage regulator or some other component is likely to have burned out. If the unit smells strongly like something has gotten hot, chances are this is the case. If its worth it to you take it to a copmputer/camcorder repair center and they may be able to actaully get the camcorder going again. That being said, if all you want is to recover the video from the hard drive take it to a computer repair facilty and tell them that, most likely they will be able to do it.

Panasonic SDR-H18 Camcorder - I would like to transfer the video from harddrive to the sd card


Did you ever figure out how to do this? I have misplaced the cord to transfer files from the HD to the computer, and I would like to not have to purchase one through Panasonic (Best Buy didn't have one). I just want to transfer the files from the HD to the SD card while in the camera, and then take the card out and put it in the Mac. Any luck?

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
