Question about Panasonic PV-GS500 Camcorder
How do i disable write protection on this camcoder?
The software for this camcorder is just HORRIBLE! I download videos to my laptop by copying/pasting from the HD directly without using the software. However, when I try to delete from the HD directly I come up against the delete protection problem.
Deleting video clips manually using the buttons on the screen is horribly slow. I don't want to delete everything as I use the HD as a backup. There has to be a better way. I love this camera, but the appalling software makes me want to fall out with it.

I had the same problem while trying to delete video off of the camera's hard drive using the VideoCam Suite software. I never could figure out how to do it using the software. However, you can delete scenes from the hard disk directly in the camcorder using the menu. For instructions, see page 59 of the manual for this camcorder at http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SDRH40P-MUL.PDF Good luck!
