Yes ... you need a firewire port if you want to capture your video to the PC....search online for a firewire pci card or if you have a laptop you may have one already installed if not you can purchase one in pcmia format to capture your footage to pc.

Did you download the software or install it from the disc for the camera? You need to do this before it will recognize the camera. Either that or your usb cable is bad.

I had the same problem with my camera i hit to the Camera body down side and its working now.

Panasonic... • Answered on Jan 21, 2011

This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry or a bad motor and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

You can connect camcorder to the PC by fireiwre (IEEE1394), if you don't have firewire controller on PC, you can buy one. It is not expensive and usually comes with the cable.

From the online specs it appears the this camera connects via Firewire, which is a different connection than USB. If you do not have a Firewire connection you can buy an add-in card for your computer usually for less than $20 online or probably more at a Best Buy.

For a desktop computer, you need something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124003

For a laptop computer, you need something like this depending on the type and availability of your expansion slots: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124014
