    Panasonic NV-GS15, Thats my camcorder, it records onto a MiniDV tape. I only have USB on my computer. How do I get the video onto my computer for editing?

    I connect it through the computer through USB and the computer only recognizes it as a SD card (because the pictures are stored on an SD card) but I can't get the computer to recognize it as a camera. Any advice?

    plug it in via usb, Open up windows movie maker, click 'capture from video device' Choose your cam, Click next, Choose best quality, Make sure ur cam is set too playback mode, Click play on your cam and start capture then click stop capture when finished

    No software Needed.

    Hope this helps

    Sorry, but I would think that Yoonsi can tell the difference between USB and Firewire. Try what easyshare said, it should work that way.

    I looked the camera up, it uses Firewire. Capture through USB isn't supported on it. He asked what to do because he only has USB.

    Wrong... I know of many cameras that also offer USB video streaming. My Sony, for example, has USB and Firewire. USB is only 1.1, so the video is 352x240...

    But I do agree with firewire. USB 2.0 or not, Firewire is the way to go.

    *edit*
    Maybe that camera is different, I have not researched it, but I know some do support USB streaming.

    I understand and agree. I only said that because I looked it up, and saw that it was a firewire cam, before posting. So I was referring to his particular cam, not all types.
