You would need to connect your camcorder to your laptop via a USB cable. Afterwards, the computer should detect another drive (which is your camcorder).

Go to My Computer and the drive for your camcorder should be listed. Once you see the drive for your camcorder, you just need to double click the folder where the pictures and videos are locatedit so that you can copy the pictures or videos that you want to send to your laptop.

Highlight/select the ones that you want to copy, then hit Ctrl+C on your keyboard (this will send a command to your laptop to copy the files that you want to copy). Afterwards, create a Folder on your laptop where you want to transfer the files to. After creating the folder, double click on it, to get inside it, then right click the mouse and select paste (or you can also press Ctrl+V) to transfer the copied files on to the said folder.

Hope this helps!

Returned item but my credit card does not any credit applied


Good morning Gerry.

There are a few things to consider:
  1. Has the item arrived back at the manufacturer? (Do you have a tracking number or such that you can use to verify delivery?) Manufacturers won't generally issue a refund until they have the rejected item back and verified to be what they sent out. (If this was at a brick and mortar store, never mind)
  2. Was it returned to a place that is/was in holiday crunch mode? If you did the return in the middle of a big sale or Black Friday preview, returns may have been stacked up with return info, to be processed when someone has time.
  3. More broadly, have you contacted the seller and told them what was returned and when? You'll likely be able to at least get some info on how quickly such refunds are processed, and if they have a record of submitting the refund. if they think they did so, ask for any return or confirmation codes they had with your credit card company.
  4. It could be with your credit card company. If you have info from the store about what they say they did, (or don't but know when you returned it), call your credit card company - the customer service # is usually on the back of the card. Explain the situation and ask if they have record of a return, or of whatever the store might have told you. It could be an issue of if/how they update their website, holiday policy on when/how refunds are updated, or, say, a protest or issue lodged by the store. Or they may just say they have no record, upon which you go back to the store and either call the 'pants on fire' or say there's no record, and go through the more exhaustive making them do what they say the did/will do.

    Hoping this helps.

What hard drive is used in wj-hd316a


The hard disk is divided into three partitions: "Normal Recording,"

"Event Recording," and "Copy." Image data is automatically

recorded to the appropriate partition according to the recording

mode. For the normal recording partition, the data is overwritten

when the capacity is full. The event recording partition prohibits

overwriting to protect data. Copy partition prepares data for

retrieval to external medium.

Hard Disk Partitioning Function* automatically

selects the partition to be recorded.

RAID5 distributes image data to multiple hard disks in the

extension unit. Upon hard disk breakdown, lost data can be

restored from other hard disks. When using one WJ-HD300A

Series unit, mirroring function is available for data backup.

I go to replay a video on my camera and all my videos are there to see but when I select one a white screen comes up and in the lower left corner it says "No applicable files available"


This message appears if data on the hard disk / internal memory / memory card of the camcorder is handled directly with the computer. When you handle data of the camcorder, use the supplied software, PMB.


If you directly handle files or folders of the camcorder from the computer, image files may be damaged or not be played back. Return the files or folders to the condition before handling, or format the recording media with the camcorder.


* If you format the recording media, all movies and still images including protected ones will be deleted.

* Sony will not accept responsibility for any results caused by handling data on the recording media from the computer.



This is the same to the images in the camera, if you have to do something with the images in your camera by PC, you won't playback it too.

Photos taken now not visible on memory card. I'm currently on vacation and have been taking photos on my DMC-TZ5. Camera has been working fine, until yesterday. I took a number of photos of a...


The memory card has most likely corrupted or the camera itself is faulty. Depending upon where you were holidaying this could be an intermittent fault due to temperature or humidity. It can also be caused if you have not followed the correct procedure for safely removing your SD card from your laptop (in Windows, click on "safely eject hardware" or from the "My Computer" window right click the SD card icon and select "Eject").

Try cleaning the card contacts using a cotton bud moistened with alcohol in case sweat, oil or grease has got onto them. If that fails then see if you can borrow another SD card, but this is risky as you may end up damaging the card so you may be better to buy the cheapest one you can solely for testing purposes (it's also worth asking for one on your local FreeCycle /Freegle groups as many folks now have low capacity SD cards with zero resale value which they have upgraded from and no longer use) . If the camera works perfectly then you know that it's most likely that the card was at fault and if not you definitely have to choose whether to get your camera sent for diagnosis and possible repair by Panasonic or whether to buy another one. Your camera is recent enough that it might still be under the manufacturer's warranty.

Regarding your existing SD card, it seems not to have recorded the images correctly or may not have recorded them at all. If the former applies, they *might* be recoverable but it needs specialist data recovery software which is not cheap (search "SD recovery"). Insert the SD card into your laptop and select the three black frames and click on "properties" to see how much memory they occupy. This will give you an idea as to whether there are approximately 90 images (3 x 30) there or not, but even if not the images could still be elsewhere on the card. You really won't know unless you invest in the required software to find out or by taking the card to a data recovery specialist (also not cheap). If you hope to recover any lost images then you must not use the card again as the data will gradually become overwritten.

The final option is to abandon all hope of the lost images, transfer the ones which you do have to your laptop (and back them up further to recordable DVD or a USB stick) and to then reformat the memory card in your camera. This option is only to be taken if obtaining a replacement SD card is impractical and if you wish to gamble that the fault was an unusual one-off. Only you can decide whether the risks of losing further unrepeatable photos are an acceptable alternative to the only certain (and expensive) fix of buying a new camera and/or memory card, although you could recoup some of the expense by reselling your current camera: it's up to buyers to ask questions ("caveat emptor") so don't mention the recent issues. Morally and legally this is fine as you don't actually know that the camera is faulty.

Sorry there's no definite answer here, but I hope that my reply will help you to isolate the cause or assists you in choosing your next course of action. If the fault is intermittent then they're impossible even for professionals to repair if they cannot reproduce the fault when testing the camera.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

If you removed the card without using the "safely remove hardware" function and the PC was still accessing data on the card, it will corrupt the card.

My memory card says it is full and wont work in anything all my holiday pics on it how can i get it to work again?


try removing the card and put it in a card reader (some newer laptops have one) to copy the memory cards content and to erase the files u don't need

u also may try getting a data manager software from the mobile's manufacturer's homepage and a USB cable fitting your phone
to copy the files to your PC.

Good luck

Memory card not initialising


Same answer I just gave to someone else. The first thing to do is to try to copy any data that is already on the card before you put it back into the camera and initialize it! Otherwise you will lose every photo on the card!

Once you are sure that you have copies of the photos, or that there is nothing in there that you can recover, put it back into the camera, go into the camera's menu, and select format or initialize, and let it do its thing.

Another solution would be to put that card aside in case you can later recover the images from it, and buy a new card to use in the camera. This holiday season you can get a one or two gig card for nearly nothing!

Can't view photos on camera


The image when recorded in the camera is known as JPEG[EXIF}
The EXIF bit is all the essential data the camera recorded about the camera [make model] exposure detail and much else.
When the computer gets the images - it does not know about or need EXIF so it ignores it.
Thus the images becomes a plain JPEG.
Cameras cannot read plain JPEG.
There are ways and means of 'restoring'[fudging to fool the camera]
but in reality is it worth it?
However if you want to try down load and learn to use Irfanview[Its free - simply type 'Irfanview' in your browser.

Unable to get images and vidoe off SD card


I have found that you almost have to download your pictures directly from the camera with the SD chip still in it. Don't know why you can't take the chip out, like with other media. As I recall, the manual says to download from your camera. Sorry.
