Panasonic SDR-S26

by NikWatt / June 16, 2009 12:13 AM PDT

I have Vista (only recently) and downloaded the CD that came with the above camera. If I connect the camera and switch it on; then it'll download the files as MOD - not the MPEG Panasonic say it records in.

If I open the ViceoCam Cuite, it tells me to wait until a notice has gone, but it never goes and the only way I can stop the VideoCam Suite from 'working' when it "isn't responding" is to reboot.

Anyone else getting this or has anyone figured-out how to get the MPEG files?

Be grateful!!

Yes, MOD files are mpeg2 files, you just need to rename them from .MOD to .MPG.
You can either do this with Windows Explorer or use my small tool SDcopy that can automatically copy all .MOD files from your SD card to a single target folder, rename them and also fix the aspect ratio problem by patching the mpeg2 headers.
You can download it from here:;topic=280.0;id=221

SDR-S26 Problems

I've discovered that plugging it into my laptop (running XP) works, in at least recognising the camcorder.

Maybe I need a new CD 'driver' for Vista - despite the box's sign saying that it works with Vista?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
