Panasonic VDR - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Software like Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere Pro or Corel VideoStudio should all work. My advise would be to also use a Firewire cable (may involve installing a firewire card) Just using the USB connecting will often if not always loose the audio

First get a voltmeter and test the power cord END that plugs directly in the charge port..if you have voltage on the charger (24volts or less) the main board in the camera is blown. In that case if it's worth it I buy another "parts or repair" camera on eBay that at least Powers up and swap boards with my broken can. Hope that helps ??

Try responding 'No', then use software to finalise the disc.

One cannot 'repair' a failed writeable disk. All you can do is copy again and maybe slow the write speed a little.

Inorder to finalize the disc you must purchase, or have a piece for the charger that looks like a battery. it plugs into the charger than into the camera. The camera will not finalize the disc without it incase the battery runs out, than all info would be lost.

A huge pain in the ***. I know, I have the same problem.

Looks like zoom lens is damaged. Probably needs pro repair.

The lens should be realined

Try using only DVD-RW disc (not DVD ROM/-R/+RW) and format as "Video" mode. When you are done shooting finalize the disc. Then iMovie or your movie maker should recognize the video.
