I've learned my lesson and will share it. Use firewire and try WinDV.
Best of luck,
I have a Panasonic Camcorder: PV-GS31 with a USB Cable and my PC is Windows ME. How can I download the video from Camcorder to PC. Merely plugging in the USB cable from the camcorder to the PC doesn't seem to work. I've downloaded a driver from the Panasonic website but it still doesn't help. Nothing registers on the PC. What to do?
