You can connect to any computer with a USB port. It appears as a hard drive after you tell the camera to connect (in the menu). Then just copy the .mod files to a spot on yor computer; there will be one for each movie clip. Your next chore is changing them into MPEG files at the correct aspect ratio. If you shot in 16:9 they will be squished together unless you use the SDCopy freeware utility to set the widescreen flag. It also renames and downloads files for you, and it's small. There's a link from this tutorial page, which also explains a lot about aspect ratios and such: http://www.elurauser.com/articles/JVC_Everio_mod_files.jsp
Don't waste time with Panasonic software it doesn't work for most people. Same problems as everyone that probably has one of these cameras and not the exact computer the software was designed to run on.I got NERO DVD burn software and am now able to see the camera hard drive and recognize my videos.I have Windows XP but as long as you get the right NERO software your troubles will probably be forgotten.After learning of doing it like this I'm really glad the Panasonic software didn't work because I'm sure I have a much better handle on how I want my videos burned to DVD.
