SOURCE: where is the reset button

I haven't used mine for over 2 years because of the mildew detected warning and not being able to find anyone to fix it for me. I just found this on the internet and am going to try it when my battery charges. Seems this is a common error for these palmcorders... good luck! "When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew."

Panasonic camcorder software


I have a similar problem but went to panasonic.com website and found something that hopefully will help a lot of you.
Once the webpage loads, click on the "Support" link near the top middle part of page. You will see three tabs and click on the 3rd tab labeled "Support."
Another page loads where you have "Option 1 enter model # or keyword" so type "PV-DV203" in the box next to "option 1." The results will appear and go down to the last entry titled "Drivers & Downloads: Camcorders." Viola, choose the software you need!!
Now my problem is, I have Windows XP so I don't know if I can still download these myself? I too have lost my CD software and don't bother calling for assistance: they will charge you $14.03 for another CD!!

Palmcorder


You shouldn't. The PV-DV203 means it is one of Panasonic's MiniDV, digital cancorders. You should only need the cable(s) supplied with the camera, and either a FireWire or USB port available on your computer. Windows Movie Maker should be able to download the video and allow you to edit it.
