My camera doesn't work when it is connected to the PC.

Make sure both the Battery Pack and AC Adapter are connected to the D-snap SD Camera when connected to a compatible PC.

I need free download of driver software for Panasonic PV-DV910 palmcorder for my pc with widows 7

There are none to download. Panasonic suggests the following when the computer fails to recognize the camera:

  • After re-inserting the SD card into this unit, reconnect the supplied USB cable.
  • Select another USB terminal on the PC.
  • Connect the supplied USB cable again after restarting the PC and turning the unit on.

    How do I download a movie from a camcorder to a pc

    Depending on the model of camera you should be able to connect it to the PC using either a USB cable or Firewire Cable then use your video editing software to capture the video. If the camera uses SD cards, you can eject the card from the camera and plug it into the computer.

    Camera E1410Sw supplied without USB cable to download photos

    You have put this question on a website. This is a public forum where people like you and me put questions about our experiences with things around us. People who have a solution or want to share similar experiences then answer these questions. I think you need to contact GE to get the cable you need. This forum will not be able to provide that.

    If you refer to page 64 of the manual (see link below) you will see how to connect to PC with the USB port. The other method is to print to a Pictbridge compatible printer. You will use the same USB cable to connect to the printer PictBridge port. (this is not the same as the printer USB port which connects Printer direct to computer). See page 68 of manual.
    Hope this helps. So the same USB cable that came with the camera should be able to do both as per the manual that I downloaded from GE website.

    How to connect Hitachi camcoder with laptop

    Connecting to PC via PC Connection Cable
    Use the provided PC connection cable to connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC as shown in the last.

    • No data can be written to the HDD, disc or SD memory card in this DVD video camera/recorder when it is connected to PC.
    • The PC connection cable does not supply power to the DVD video camera/recorder: Use the AC adapter/charger
    to power the DVD video camera/recorder.
    • Before connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, disconnect any cables or camera accessories (external
    video flash, external microphone, etc.) other than the PC connection cable and AC adapter/charger.
    • When connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, the ACCESS/PC indicator will light green. While HDD or
    a disc is being accessed, the indicator will light or blink orange. While an SD memory card is being accessed, the
    CARD ACCESS indicator will light or blink red.

    If you connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC via PC connection cable, the PC will automatically recognise the DVD video camera/recorder. After recognition is finished, it may be
    prompted to restart the PC: In this case, follow the instruction and restart the PC.

    I have the sony DCR-HC26E handy cam i'm trying to connect it with my pc (windows 7) by using usb cable it wont work my pc doesn't recognise my camera ....thanks

    USB connection will allow still photos ONLY to be capture to a computer. To capture the footage from the tape you will have to connect with a firewire cable, also called iLink or IEEE1394a. Windows Movie Maker will be one program that can capture the footage.

    Cannot transfer tape contents to PC

    To transfer video from your camera you will need a firewire cable and a firewire port on your PC. If you don't have such a port you can buy a PCI firewire port.
    After you connected your camera with firewire cable you can then use windows movie maker to transfer your video.

    This camera will only work with the latest version(s) of iMovie (08 and 09). I'm not sure, but you may need an Intel-based Mac also/too. Any previous version (for example, iMovie HD, aka version 6) will NOT work with this camera out of the box.

    There is a workaround. You will need the MPEG2 Playback Component for Quicktime from Apple ($20) and a free program called MPEG Streamclip. I also use OS 10.5 (Leopard), and this has worked for me. Once the component is installed, drag the .MOD files from the camera (it will appear as a disk on the desktop when you plug it in and turn it to "PC Connect" mode) one at a time into MPEG Streamclip. Then export them to the DV file format, which is what iMovie uses. Depending on the length of the clips, this can take a fairly long time. Good luck.

    Connecting the camera via USB hub.

    Use of a USB hub for connection does not guarantee normal operation. Try attaching the USB cable directly from the D-snap SD Camera to one of the built-in USB ports on the PC.
