Question about Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

Panasonic PV-GS31 video to PC trouble.

I have the pv-gs31 panasonic camcorder and have a video that I want uploaded to my computer. I use Windows XP. I have the usb port wire that connects to the computer to my camera. I do not have any software that came with the camera. How do I get the video off of the tape in my camcorder onto my computer? I tried using Windows Movie Maker to retrieve my video but it says I don't have the camera connected but my computer says that it is connected. Help please!

The usb is only used for the still pics and for the webcam. You need a DV cable to upload vid.

Hi,

Browse through you camera's main menu. There might be a function that will enable you to switch from tape to sd card.

Cheers

How to transfer PV-L780D panasonic camcorder video to PC.


For your SD card, you have to use the USB port to mini-USB port cable that came with the camera, or a card reader. Connect it to the computer, and turn the camera on. Windows XP and Windows 7 will detect it as a hard drive, and give you the options for transferring the pictures to your pc. You also have a firewall cable that you can use with the software that came with the camera. In case you need more information, you can download the manual that will tell you how here:

Please help with panasonic PV-GS31 !!


The driver for Win 200 will work fine under XP. Vista of course is another monster all together.
What I would suggest under Vista is the following.
Use the same Win2000 Drivers...
  1. Extract the drivers to a folder.
  2. Plug the camera into the USB port and Vista will detect it. At this point (if you are really lucky) Vista will have drivers in it's catalogue and install them.
  3. If it does not have them it will pop up a box and ask what you want to do.
  4. Choose select the driver from a list.
  5. When the window pops up, choose Have Disk and browse to the folder you extracted the files into.
  6. Pick the right INF file and then select OK.
  7. It will then begin to try and install the drivers.
  8. Follow any other prompts you see, and make sure to read each one clearly.
Hope that helps =)
