I have a Panasonic PV-DV601 camcorder connected to USB on my Windows XP (I lost my firewire cable). The Device Manager shows OK USB. However, Windows Media Maker cannot find it. What should I do to capture video on the tape?

The camcorder has a USB port to transfer your still images to your computer, You cannot transfer your video using the USB.

I have a Panasonic PV-GS39 and want to put my movies onto computer that's running on windows 7. Using the USB cable doesn't work. Will the firewire cable really work or am I just out of luck? Thanks for...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. The way it works on my computer, the camera is controlled by the computer software.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Whether this will work with Windows 7, I am not sure. My Mini-DV camera, using a Firewire cable, didn't need any camera driver loaded to the computer, just the movie editor that came with Windows XP.

How do it ransfer video from my pv-gs9 to my computer xp. i have a new firewire to usb cable but my computer won't recognize it.


I don't understand the "firewire to USB cable" reference. You can't just connect these two incompatible interfaces together with a cable. There is some kind of conversion device available to allow a Firewire connection to be made to a USB port, but the chatter on the forums says that it doesn't work with video cameras.

Some mini-DV cameras have a USB port, but only use it for stills and can only download video by Firewire. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

You don't say if you have the manual available for reference. If not, you can download a copy from THIS LINK

You aren't going to be able to capture through the USB connection. If it did happen, the video quality would be poor.

If you have an open PCI slot on your motherboard, then you can get a firewire card to put it. It isn't hard to do.

Before you do, look under Device Manager, to see if you have anything listed for IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers. If you do, you may just need to get a firewire cable.

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER HERE:

You shoudn't need any software for the transfer

Detection problem of video cam panasonic gs90 ev


Hi

If you're using windows XP, the camera will be automatically identified.
Anyhow, try the following:
1. Check the cable for any possible defects.
2. Switch off the computer.
3. Connect the cable to both the camcorder and the firewire card.
4. Switch on the computer.
5. Switch on the camcorder.

If the cable and the firewire card are both okay then it is possible
that the camcorder firewire interface is damaged.

good luck

Panasonic PV-GX31 DV Camcorder - Need Help!!


I can't find any reference to a PV-GX31 model, BUT if your camcorder is a PV-GS31 MiniDV model, then you need special software for it to show up on your computer screen. Panasonic supply the software to show and edit still shots (through your USB cable). But if you want to show and edit movies, then you need a firewire cable, a firewire connection on your computer to connect it to, and most importantly some editing software. PCs are pretty slack in this area, so you should use a mac!

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.
